I have lived and worked in Africa since 1966 (Zimbabwe, Zambia, Kenya and Uganda). Along the way I have learned three Bantu languages, studied diverse cultures, taught and trained from village level to graduate level, conducted research at the university level, written and self-published 68 books primarily for an African audience but also for a missionary audience. I do not need a job but am on Skill Pages, because (at 71) I may be able to help some individuals and organizations on a part-time basis from my home in Nairobi, Kenya.

The Harvest21 Discipleship Endowment Fund
This fund is created to give Christians a way to provide memorials for loved ones who pass on to glory. Monthly memorial gifts are received and deposited into interest gathering investments. The principle is never depleted but the annual interest is used to sponsor worthy discipleship mobilization activities.
This institution is a companion to The Harvest Practicum and Harvest Institute. It is a mechanism for implementing a holistic discipleship lifestyle in East African communities and is financially sustained by charitable giving and grants.
I founded HI in 2002, designed and published its curriculum, and trained its personnel. In 2010, I turned it over to Kenyan leadership and went on in 2012 to establish Harvest Institute Online in collaboration with Hope International University, Fullerton, California. Both institutions offer a Certificates or Diplomas in Christian Ministries.
The Harvest Practicum
Discipleship Mobilization based on two different training series: 1) The Foundations and Fruitfulness Series (4 initial books with 8 follow-up books) and 2) A Discipleship Journey Series (6 initial books with 3 follow-up books). 32,000 disciples mobilized in a variety of churches and communities.
