How I became a Children’s Teacher_ Brother Tola Adele

———–By Brother Tola Adele

This month marks a span of 10 years that I became a sunday school teacher.

I grew up and was tutored in the sunday school, a remarkably intelligent , very shy but stubborn boy, as observed by my teachers.

Shyness made me away run from participating in the activities whilst growing in the sunday school, many occasions I would hide in the toilet when I was given memory verse and recitations refusing to present.

I got into troubles always with my father, a sidesman coordinator and church elder who was disciplined and no nonsense for playfulness and stubbornness

One of the teachers discovered me after a bible examination was conducted for all sunday school students and I came out the highest and then penned my name for the bible quiz at ketu international headquarters where my shyness began to break gradually as I was part of the audience and answered questions that even contestants couldn’t answer and won prizes.

We went for several other bible quiz and some we took first position with exploits that made our teachers proud.

Later on I conducted service, read the lessons and eventually did the juvenile sermon for the harvest(the gifts was an attraction)
after the juvenile sermon, I felt this burning passion, zeal and commitment in my heart to pass on everything I had learnt back to the sunday school, as many of my mates were leaving the sunday school graduating to the adult church.

I never for once in my life had the urge to leave the sunday school and go to the main church. I loved the sunday school, i grew to love it and cherish its atmosphere and I loved children dearly.

So I started teaching and leading children then the spirit of the lord came, and said boldly that I should continue in the pursuit that I am engaged in and not look at the attitude of my friends or what they say.

The anointing to teach came with that effect that no child was much of a challenge for me to handle and relate with.
I could feel it upon me and the result showed everywhere I have ever taught children

I continued, though at times exhausted and the feeling of not being appreciated, but the sunday school transformed and shaped my life for greater things that lay ahead, and is part of what I have become today.

I had a friend with whom we started the teacher’s journey together, he eventually left for another church on admission to higher institution after he felt unsatisfied and doesn’t comprehend some things

I felt the same way, but I tell you the knowledge and understanding I have acquired as a result of the sunday school is priceless. I was self taught and spirit taught, life taught, as I dug deep in the bible searching.
A spring of spiritual and scriptural overflow started flowing in me.
I understood things beyond my age as God gave me a unique inspiration to see into things that confused me

That passion burned in my heart like a flame that I had to always come home every weekend from school(Yabatech) to take the sunday school, prepare it for service, take multiple classes and minister to the children when the sunday school heads were on a long term absence

My pride rises when I see this children grow and become big, when they excel on juvenile harvest and in their schools, and are now graduates

I taught, mentored, coached, learnt, relearnt, researched, and got better everyday.
My character and human relation deepened and was thoroughly worked on as i handled and dealt with children.
Thats why till date, I behave like a child (smiles)

I was afraid to disappoint the children I taught and it happened one day when I fought hard with someone in the sunday school and the service was disrupted and all the children watching me.

I had some temptations inside of me seeing my female children mature to puberty but I was afraid and feared to lose my integrity to children to look up to me as a teacher, coach and example for them to follow.

I feared to mislead anyone and my integrity before the children

The respect and love I have gained from children in several parishes is immeasurable

I learnt patience, dedication, value, discipline and sacrifice, how to be handle criticism, being unappreciated and pressure.

The sunday school gave me a platform to be a better teacher, a preacher, and awoke several gifts I ever knew I had in me.
My belief and convictions grew stronger as my doubts vanished

I never went for any training on children but I understood child psychology

The rewards of teaching children was so enormous that no man can pay me for doing it, only God is truly capable to reward one accordingly.

I was given an meritorious award in my parish for my contributions and outstanding services to the sunday school.
God venerated my sense of not being appreciated at a time when I least expected or even wanted such

I taught children with passion, love and commitment and still do, getting better at it everyday

Teaching children as a sunday school teacher is one of the greatest things that can happen to you: it transforms you, reforms you and gives you a very rare sense of joy and an heavenly reward.

There is nothing as great as leading children to God, to know him and grow in him.
