What is the Mizizi Experience?

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.

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.

How Does Mizizi Work?

Each year we organize three Mizizi seasons at every single one of our campuses all spanning a period of 10 weeks. Mizizi encompasses a large group of people who are divided into smaller groups of 8-12 people based on their residential locations. The small groups are led by 2-3 facilitators.

Every participant is expected to do daily personal study; meet once a week for group discussions; participate in three weekend experiences that entail half day of prayer and fasting, sharing the gospel and serving the vulnerable and disadvantaged members of society. In addition there are three large group plenary meetings to launch off the Mizizi season, a financial talk, and the experience culminates in a retreat and final graduation or celebration service. Eighty percent attendance is required for one to successfully complete the Mizizi experience.

Participants are thereafter encouraged to carry on as a small group fellowships fondly referred to as “Life groups”, a group of lifelong friends who live life together.

“What do you make of this? A farmer planted seed. As he scattered the seed, some of it fell on the road, and birds ate it. Some fell in the gravel; it sprouted quickly but didn’t put down roots, so when the sun came up it withered just as quickly. Some fell in the weeds; as it came up, it was strangled by the weeds. Some fell on good earth, and produced a harvest beyond his wildest dreams” Matthew 13: 3-8 The Message.

Here´s what 10 weeks of transformation can do:

Taking the Mizizi class was amazing! I grew and grew and grew… I learnt how to cry, got out of debt, forgave people against whom I´d held grudges for years, started talking to my father after 9 years of silence… the list goes on! And I´m still growing!

Wamaitha Mungai, Banker

Through Mizizi, a lot of questions we had about the Christian walk were answered! The course is well rounded and relevant to everyday life, covering practical topics like identifying and using your spiritual gifts to managing your finances. In addition, the opportunity to share our faith was awesome! We don´t just advise people to take part in Mizizi, we would say that it is mandatory for all Christians to attend.

Sheila and Angela Ndiho, Business Owners

Mizizi helped me to rethink my personal ministry! I found the material relevant, direct and easy to read, and couldn´t wait to pick it up every day. The emphasis on application gave it a life-changing quality. I highly recommend this for every Christian.

Peter Maribei, Pastor

Having done the class twice – the second time as a facilitator – I found that it took me back to the basics of building deep roots for my faith. The opportunity to interact with others and to be immersed in ministry together ignited something in me. I was greatly challenged about my role in social justice and in environmental issues. It was so rewarding to see people´s lives changed. This is an excellent course.

Anne Mahinda, Hotelier

It has been amazing to see God at work to create powerfully transformed growing believers through this 10-week course. To see people living out missional lives, excited about their faith is a real blessing. I highly recommend it and encourage you to use it as a guide, whether you´re just starting out in faith or have been a Christian for many years.
