What is Maize Plant Discipleship?

Maize Plant Discipleship is a learning resource of approximately 60 scripturally-based studies, designed to be practical, relevant and accessible for use in African contexts. It has been derived and road-tested in collaboration with African leaders and learners. It has been formulated in response to doctoral research conducted in Burkina Faso, West Africa. It is being published as a syllabus of short, modular studies:

  • tailored to small learning groups;
  • incorporating reflective group discussions;
  • suitable for formal and informal study;
  • linguistically accessible;
  • economically replicable.

Maize Plant Discipleship is designed to be delivered by local facilitators, who have freely-licenced access to use, distribute and republish Maize Plant Discipleship resources, both printed and digital.

To equip local and regional facilitators, MPD Facilitators Training  is being provided by a free online e-learning course.
