GOD’S WORD AND SPIRIT TRANSFORMS LIVES
Son Mission Busia teaches Biblical curriculum in 5 schools to over 300 students each year. We teach God’s Word in hope that youth will come to repentance, place their faith in Jesus alone, and grow in relationship with God, His word, and His church. Our curriculum is created to ask and answer difficult questions, sharpen minds, point youth to churches, and build relationships.
WHY IS BIBLICAL CURRICULUM IMPORTANT?
All government funded schools in Uganda are required to teach a religious course that paints Christianity and Islam as very similar religions: barely drawing fundamental distinctions between the Qu'ran and the Bible. Additionally, the teachers who teach this course are not required to know, believe or understand Christianity or Islam. In essence, the teachers are teaching to inform, not transform. “Sheep Primer”, “All about Jesus”, and “Following Jesus” are unique because Spirit-lead believers teach God’s word with the prayerful hope for students to be transformed, not just informed.
Son Mission values the transformative power of God’s word. Bibles are scarce in the Busia District. We donate Bibles to each school that teaches “Sheep Primer”, “All about Jesus”, and “Following Jesus”, so students have free access to God’s word. We have given over 800 Bibles to students, schools, and caregivers since 2016. Corporately and individually, Busia District mentors teach Biblical literacy: scripture interpreting scripture within contextual and historical application. We consistently remind students the entire Bible points to God’s glory and God’s sacrificial love for us through Jesus within four sweeping parts: creation, fall, redemption, and consummation.
Not everyone is called to be a Bible scholar, pastor or church planter. “Sheep Primer” goes through a 4-week exploration of the God-given abilities and desires He has given each student. Students go through an assessment that helps reveal their skills, characteristics and desires, which are linked to practical jobs within their community and beyond. God calls His people to put on Christ within their communities. Whether one is a pastor, nurse, teacher or farmer the purpose is the same for the Christian: bring glory to His name. “Sheep Primer”, “All about Jesus”, and “Following Jesus” illuminates true success as being obedient to His calling, not striving after temporary, fading endeavors.
