Maize Plant Discipleship is a scripturally-based learning resource, which 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.
