It has often been said that children are our future. If so then the world’s most populous nation has a huge future, and Sonshine was conceived to help build for that day. Commencing in 2005, Sonshine is a specialized training course designed to improve the skills and qualifications of China’s Sunday School teachers as well as raise the standard of indigenous teaching materials employed in the classroom. To date more than 2160 teachers have been trained directly by Sonshine.
In 2007 Sonshine upgraded its program to incorporate a credit accumulation system. Today teachers in the course must complete the required number of credits and undergo a practicum in order to be certified by Sonshine. The curriculum encompasses a wide range of subjects which are studied over a period of two years, including theories of child development, theological foundations for children’s ministry and managing classroom behavior.
