There are so many people all over the world that don’t know Jesus. Do you want to do something about that? We are on a mission to put a vibrant community of Jesus followers in everyone’s reach, especially where there is not already a local church present. Come join REACH in South Africa to be prepared and equipped together with other likeminded people from all over the globe to do just that. You will be trained in practical skills, challenged to grow as a disciple of Jesus, and guided to find your strategic place in world missions!

REACH is a 5-month training program where you will be exposed to different kinds of cultures, ministries, and missions’ opportunities. A Biblical foundation for discipleship provides a structure for spiritual growth, healing, and a platform for sharing your faith. You will participate in a weekly ministry and explore where your passion and skillset can be most fruitful in God’s Kingdom while a personal coach-mentor will walk through this journey with you. You will look at the “why” and “how” of missions while learning about and interacting with other world religions. You will participate in one practical 2-week elective: (Agriculture, Kids and Youth Ministry, Biblical / Social Justice, or Business) before concluding the training with a 2-week outreach where you get to put all that you have been learning into practice somewhere amongst the least reached in South Africa.

Ministry details

REACH South Africa is unique because we have an exciting next step in your journey to making Jesus known among the least reached. Connexion is a 6-month internship where you gain a more specific and practical training opportunity. Where you get to serve, will depend on what you have discovered about yourself during REACH and where you feel God is calling you. (E.g. If God is calling you to the Middle East, your internship will be on a field which is already working amongst Muslims, and you might start an Arabic course. Anything to get you as well equipped as we can for the mission field!) This internship opportunity allows you to take your learning and preparation to the next level so you can move from missions exposure to missions experience and competency.
