Enhance Your Facilitation Skills – Pastor Adjei Advises Children’s Workers

Children’s workers of The Church of Pentecost have been urged to improve their presentation and facilitation skills in order to excel in their role as child facilitators.

Pastor Peter Adjei, the Greater Accra Children’s Pastor of The Church of Pentecost, issued this call on Tuesday, July 4, 2023, during the 2023 Foundation Builders’ Conference (FBC’23) at the Pentecost Convention Centre (PCC) in Gomoa Fetteh.

Speaking on the topic “Facilitation Skills,” Pastor Adjei expressed concern about how some children’s workers continue to struggle with handling various topics in their ministries.

“All around the world, people struggle to connect. Great ideas are discarded or left unsaid, and strategies are not understood. A lot of the time, people can’t connect because workshops or meetings are improperly structured, with too many things happening at once,” he noted.

Pastor Adjei emphasised that two crucial elements that drive every meeting are the content and the process. He further stressed the importance of structuring meetings into different stages and using group tools to ensure a clear understanding of the content and keep everyone on the same page.

To achieve success as a facilitator, he asserted the need for one to be skilful with the Heart, Head, and Hand (3Hs).

He explained that the Heart encompasses the attitude and character the facilitator must demonstrate, while the Head and Hand represent the knowledge and skills required in the facilitation process, respectively.

Concluding his presentation, Pastor Adjei noted that although knowledge and skills are important, the Heart (attitude and character) of the facilitator remains paramount, saying: “The Heart of every facilitator is the most important in every facilitation process because if the Heart is corrupt, both the Head and the Hand will be corrupt too.”
