The Influence of the Missionary Legacy on the Practice of Discipleship in the Anglican Church of Uganda
(Southern African Missiological Society (SAMS)., 2022) Hughes, Jessica L.; Naidoo, Marilyn
At this stage in African mission history, one would assume that African churches would have thriving Christian education programmes that are disciplining people and growing the church deeply. However, this is not necessarily the case, as this article will reveal through an explanatory study that explores the disconnect between ideas of discipleship and practices of discipleship, impacted by Revival movements. How African church leaders define discipleship and execute it in churches is an important task for the growth of the church. The value of the study is in its decolonial examination of Christian education to stress the need for the inculturation of the African worldview towards meaningful discipleship practice.

The COVID-19 pandemic greatly affected the economic wellbeing of our families and something that our families are struggling with at this point in time, is to educate their children. I must therefore commend our parents and sponsors who have sacrificed greatly to ensure that our students graduate today. Can I request our graduands to clap/applaud our parents and sponsors for the great job that they have done.
