The quiz saw great men of God such as the Tema District pastor, the Holy Spirit Fire Center pastor, Living Word Temple pastor, Pastor Mrs. Susuana Atiso, Director of the Children’s Ministry for Greater Accra East.
According to Pastor Mrs. Susuana Atiso, Director of the Children’s Ministry for Greater Accra East, in an interview with Ghana News Agency the Bible quiz was organized to help the children in becoming conversant with the Scriptures and the Assemblies of God doctrines.
“It is important for the children in the church to know and have the Word of God in their hearts, the doctrines, and history of the church, and to love the church they belong.”
“It is one thing to know the word of God and another to practise or even pray, and it is the Holy Spirit that gives us strength to do all things.”
She explained that many people attend church services and programmes but do not know really know God, noting that it was important that Christians know the God they served.
“I recommend that as parents, we teach our children the word of God at home, pray with them often, and encourage them to do their devotions and quiet time because their Sunday School Teachers alone can’t achieve these goals without parental support,” she advised.
Holistic grooming and nurturing must begin in the homes, church, and nation as a whole; “if training does not start at home, there’s no way we can have good future leaders.”
