Pekar, Jane Janine. "Witness to the Presence of God Moments in the Action and Voice of Children." D. Min., Tyndale University, 2020.
This portfolio begins with a reflection of my personal journey in spiritual formation. In response to the contemporary shift in society's affirmation of the rights and voice of children as world citizens and my experiences as a teacher, parent and ordained minister, I created a model of ministry for families with young children combining components of Young Child & Worship and Messy Church. Using Action Research, I introduced principles of the Reggio-Inspired Approach to enhance the children's personalization of the experience. The observations of the children's creative responses and intuitive initiatives were recorded and shared in four Documentations.
