Requirements

The purpose of the Africa Trek is to disciple participants through exposure to rural and least-reached African communities; deepen their intimacy with God; and help them become effective disciple-makers.  Participants (‘Trekkies’) will travel for up to 3 months through Southern Africa, staying with various local missionaries, serving them the best way possible. We will travel by car, bus or train, and will stay in very basic accommodation (often in tents) and eat the local food.

Trekkies will be involved in a variety of ministries including (but not limited to) door-to-door evangelism, children’s ministry, sports ministry, showing the Jesus Film and practical work. Trekkies will aim to serve the needs of the local missionaries as effectively as possible.
Day-to-day activities will vary depending on the community we are staying with. Daily activities may include things like group devotions, times for teaching/training, evangelism, serving the local community, preparing meals and traveling.

As the Africa Trek Ministry Leaders we are looking for someone to facilitate the planning of the Treks, leading of the Trek leader team, and discipling the "Trekkies" during their Treks.

This is not a salaried position.  We would require that sufficient Discipleship training be previously obtained, or be willing to attend Discipleship training prior to stepping into the role.

Speaking up

“…There was just something about speaking up for those who cannot speak for themselves,” said Annelize.

A long time in the making

From the age of five, Jane knew she wanted to serve the Lord overseas. What she didn't know was when exactly she would go.

'Doing things differently'

“I have found that, working with the different fields, I can help the young people grow in their roles and support the Field strategically – aspects of my career that I loved to do, and now continue to do so,” said Van Zyl.

Utilizá tu profesión para una causa mayor

Cuando Juan se sintió impulsado a dejar sus estudios y dedicarse a la plantación de iglesias, Dios le dejó en claro que terminará esa obra, porque estaba por usar las habilidades de Juan para Sus propósitos.

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.”

Using your profession for a greater cause

When Juan felt compelled to leave his studies and do church planting, God made it clear to him to finish because God was going to use Juan's skills for His purposes.
