Rooted in Jesus

Rooted in Jesus is a group course in Christian discipleship written for use in Africa. It is the only material of its kind written especially for the use of ordinary African Christians, rather than translated from material developed for the West – where people face different problems and challenges in their Christian lives.

“I have no doubt that God has commissioned and anointed this course for Africa in much the same way as he is using Alpha in more urban and ‘western’ settings. We are already starting to see remarkable things in this Diocese as people and congregations are set on fire with the love of Jesus” –
Bishop Martin Breytenbach, Diocese of St Mark the Evangelist, South Africa.
Now in use in many African countries, Rooted in Jesus was originally created by Roger & Alison Morgan as part of the link relationship between the Diocese of Leicester and the Diocese of Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, at the request of Rt Revd Stanley Hotay, then diocesan missioner and now the bishop. It is is normally introduced to a whole diocese or area, at the invitation of the bishop or denominational leader, by a team of ministers from the UK and Africa. Because Rooted in Jesus is as much a method as a course, this has proved the best way of establishing it effectively. Groups are led by pastors, evangelists or catechists, and newly commissioned lay leaders, both men and women. Many of these groups have seen people becoming Christians, experiencing answered prayer, deepening their commitment to one another and to the church, and living changed lives. There is a  companion Rooted in Jesus Junior course for use in Sunday Schools.
Rooted in Jesus has now been introduced to over 100 dioceses and denominations in 18 African countries.

Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Matthew 28.19-20.
Be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus; and what you have heard from me through many witnesses entrust to faithful people who will be able to teach others as well.
2 Timothy 2.2.
