Creating Spiritual Villages
The Kijiji* Concept
The African proverb “it takes a village to raise a child” has some truth to it. In a typical African village, neighbors are blood relatives with similar values. Issues of discipline are dealt with at the family level but enforced at the village level.
As the African population has become increasingly urbanized, the privilege of living next door to blood relatives has been lost. But for the Christian, the village can be recreated – not the old village made up of those related by genetics – but a new village – a spiritual village – made up of those related by the blood of Christ. The new spiritual village need not be made up of next door neighbors alone, but can consist of the rich network of relationships accessible to us wherever we have influence.
As children get into their teenage years, peer influence becomes very significant. PWP tools have been developed for people of all ages. Parents, grandparents, young adults and children have used them to develop depth in their walk with God. Children as young as age 6 have given us positive feedback on the influence of the scriptures in their lives, as adults have helped them use this tool. When peers are intentionally influenced together for good and for God on a regular basis, the new-found depth of relationships can be developed into a spiritual village in which godly values can be nurtured.
The process can be repeated several times resulting in workers of the kingdom next door to everywhere.
But tools alone do not make disciples. It takes a disciple to make a disciple. So register for the Peers Without Pressure(PWP) training and you will be on your way to creating your own spiritual Kijiji.
