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.

A bunch of misfits

“I joined a homegroup (Bible Study or life group) two years ago and as time passes, more and more of each member’s character is coming forward,” says Renette. “It dawned on me the other day that we honestly do not have anything in common. No one does the same job or has the same friends or enjoys the same hobbies. No one would have met if it wasn’t for the homegroup. The only thing in common is our love for Jesus.”
