Mission Discipleship Training (MDT)

Has God been talking to you about sharing your faith with others? 

Has He laid a particular people group or country on your heart? 

Do you know that God is calling you to be a labourer in the fields that are ready to be harvested?

.....and yet you are still at home, struggling to follow Him, because you just do not feel you have the knowledge, training, skills or practical experience needed to step out.

Stories from South Africa

To equip and disciple

Vinitha and her husband help young people hear from God on two questions: 'who am I?' and 'what am I here for?'

‘I can do this!’

God believed in Esther when nobody else did, turning her life around and calling her to serve Him in missions.

Life in Lesotho

The Schmidt family learnt that the experiences on this journey with God to—and in—Lesotho have been far more valuable to them than all the comforts of the world.

Dear missions

“Dear Missions,

It’s been a while since we first started on this adventure together….It’s been good and I’m thankful for this opportunity, but there are a few things I wish you had told me before I boarded that first plane. So I’m writing you this letter with the hope that the next person to join you will know some of these things beforehand. And that those already with you will know that they are not alone.”

Combining personal passion with ministry

Ride2Transform allows teams on two wheels to pedal far and wide, praying and sharing the love of Christ in least reached areas in Europe and Africa.

Back to the future

“The new year is here,” says Renette. “The world tells us to make new year’s resolutions and nothing is wrong with doing that. Let’s not just look to the new year, let’s remember and celebrate the past year.”
