Mizizi is an exciting ten week practical discipleship experience designed to help you connect to God, connect with your purpose, and connect with like-minded people on a journey of discovering and living out their purpose.
As Mark Twain is famously quoted as saying, “The two most important days in your life are the day you are born, and the day you discover why”. Mizizi (Swahili for “Roots”) is designed to help you discover and equip you in your journey to pursue and fulfil your purpose.
Connects you to God: through daily devotions you will be able to know and understand God better; you will grow a deeper and more intimate relationship with Him in times of prayer and fasting; and your Will and desires will be better aligned to His as you learn to lead a life of obedience, surrender and submission.
- Connects you to Community: God created us for relationships and as you go through the experience with others, you will develop lifelong friendships with like-minded people, be able to share your faith or salvation story with those outside the church as well as reach out to the marginalized and vulnerable members of society.
- Connect you to Purpose: through Mizizi you will discover how to effectively use your time, talents and finances to lead a meaningful and purposeful life; impact the societal sector you are positioned in and possibly leave a legacy for generations to come.
St Andrew’s School, Turi have run many Mizizi courses for the benefit of both students and staff. Part of the course involves running evangelical events, most recently involving Senior School students running events for pupils at the Prep School. Three events were organised, at different venues around the School and focusing on children in Key Stage 1 (ages 4-7), Year 7 girls and all Year 8 pupils. It was inspiring to see the Senior School students apply creative thinking in presenting the gospel message, to very different age groups.
