Missions Discipleship Training+ (MDT+) is an intensive training programme aimed at equipping you for a missional life wherever God calls you.
Our initial five-month programme takes you through a discipleship module, gives you structure for spiritual growth and covers an introduction to biblical and transformational missions focussing on least-reached people.
We live in a multicultural community, learning to understand one another and grow together, and there are many opportunities for ministry as we work alongside local and international partners.
During the second phase, we will help you design a personalised preparation programme (Plus), customised for where and how you see yourself involved in future ministry. You will be given exposure to different ministry electives—you could dive into issues of social justice, or learn how to use the arts, sport, business or community development as a basis for ministry while interacting with and witnessing to people of different faiths in different contexts.
You will be given the opportunity to complete an internship with a compatible ministry, have personal coaching and if applicable get a qualification that will open the door for effective ministry. We aim to prepare you, equip you and expand your world view as you discover all that God has prepared in advance for you to do!
If you`re over 18 years of age, single, married or a family, and have the desire to be involved in changing the world for Jesus - this course is for you.
Go to people who have never heard of Jesus - prepared and ready!
“Declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous deeds among all peoples.”- Psalm 96:3
MDT+ is a place where God will lay your life and the Bible wide open, and you’re taught how to get them on the same page.”

When, where and how long?
There are two intakes each year starting in February and September. MDT+ is a minimum of 11 months, depending on your specific Preparation Programme.
The first five months will be in Pretoria, South Africa, and the location of the rest of your time will be determined by the internship and exposure opportunities most suitable for your ministry preparation.
