Maize Plant Discipleship

multi2x1Maize Plant Discipleship is a scripturally-based learning resource, that I have authored, based on contextual leadership training and doctoral research, undertaken in Burkina Faso:

  • Resource Handbook
  • 15 module handbooks
  • 60 scripturally-based studies
  • 240 topics, 900+ reflective questions
  • Accessible concepts and language
  • Tailored to small learning groups, incorporating reflective discussions
  • Suitable for formal and informal study
  • Licensed for republication, training and translation.

Its aim is to facilitate biblical learning that continuously moves outwards, drawing whole communities into patterns of scripturally-based discipleship, in living dialogue with contextual culture.

From the cover of the Resource Handbook:

Growing maize is a metaphor for forming disciples.

Maize is grown throughout Africa. By ordinary, untrained people. For food; for sharing; for sowing. It is not the domain of specialist agriculturalists. Anyone can grow maize; almost anywhere. All it takes is soil, sunshine, rainfall, seed, some basic tools and a determination to act.

Likewise, anyone can be involved in making disciples. It is not the domain of clerical professionals. The need is to facilitate scripturally-based discipleship, by providing a set of basic tools, for the use of ordinary, untrained people.
