The purpose of the study is to demonstrate a specific technique in teaching a Vacation Bible School course for the purpose of increasing cognitive and affective learning. In the cognitive area, the students are to learn more about what the Bible reveals as well as the opportunities for mission work in Kazakhstan. In the affective area, the students are not only to become aware of the reason for their own inner struggles but also to become concerned about reaching out to those who have as yet not heard the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

In the area of cognitive skills the goal will be more than just a sharing of knowledge from teacher to pupil. Instead, a determined effort will be made to move beyond knowledge to comprehension, application, analysis (taking apart) of the subject matter, synthesis (putting it back together) and evaluation. Affective skills will involve a change in attitude, an awareness of values and an increase in the emotional aspects of love, joy and comfort.
