Rooted In Jesus
Good Samaritan, through the missions committee, has provided financial support for the African ministry of Rooted in Jesus for several years. This ministry is sponsored through the Mathetes Trust in England, and provides materials and human leadership for Christian discipleship designed especially for use in Africa. Rooted in Jesus is the only material of its kind written especially for the use of ordinary African Christians, rather than translated from material developed for the West – where people face different problems and challenges in their Christian lives.
Many may be familiar with Rooted in Jesus through awareness of the trips to Africa Richard Morgan has made over the last few years to lead conferences. On one such trip, Jeff Moretzsohn and Nicole Arthur traveled with Richard, assisting with a conference. Richard’s stepmother, Allison Morgan, and his father, Roger Morgan (of the Mathetes Trust) are major leaders in Rooted in Jesus. Recently, they sent along an update on the work of Rooted In Jesus.
