TransformD Discipleship Programme

TransformD is a mentorship programme for school leavers in Kenya. The 'D' in TransformD encompasses the five ways that the programme hopes to transform young people:

  • Devoted to the word.
  • Disciples of Christ.
  • Disciplined in following Christ.
  • Dependable in Christian ministry.
  • Deployable to do good works among others.

Throughout the six month programme, TransformD hope to:

  • Disciple – to develop young people in character and passion for Jesus Christ.
  • Mentor – to prepare young people to be responsible adults.
  • Equip – to train participants in life skills: time management, reading, creative writing, hard work, discipline, integrity, relationships and first aid.
  • Send – provide young people with an opportunity to gain valuable experiences in cross cultural mission trips.

One recent participant said, 'TransformD has been a great opportunity to interact with people from different backgrounds. But above all things the main lesson has been learning how to measure everything against the Bible. I have come to appreciate the fact that the entire bible is about Jesus Christ. I have acquired some new skills, got into a bible study routine and learnt how to do personal devotions and journaling. I have overcome the tendency to seclude myself and be on my phone a lot of time and have learnt how to socialise and make new friends. The Samburu trip was an experience like no other. For one, I had never been away from home for such a long time and secondly it has been a real eye-opener to what mission is all about. I had known that there are communities that do not have the Bible in their local language but I got to see it first hand and I now treasure my bible more.'

TransformD is part of the ministry of iServe Africa and run by Gerald and Louise Mwangi
