Small Business Entrepreneur Coach

South Africa

The Position

Seven Rivers is an outreach of one of Durban’s Fellowship of Baptist Churches. It is in a very rural community. They are looking for a Jesus-follower with a background in starting small businesses; skills needed in market research, basic accounting, micro-financing methods, creating a business plan, marketing and advertising, stock and production flow, and basic knowledge of manual skills (such as carpentry, welding, electrical, plumbing, mechanical, crafts, gardening, beekeeping, soap and candle-making, etc.); must be willing to learn the Zulu language; goal is assistance and mentoring of local poor adults, Christian and nonbeliever, in learning a locally-relevant job skill and launching their own business.

The Need

In South Africa there is poverty, disease, crime, and spiritual darkness. From much-needed racial reconciliation, to an influx of new religions being combined with ancient superstitions and the increase of Islam, South Africa desperately needs the reconciling truth of the gospel.

The Durban Field Team is united with this vision: we will help plant and equip local churches and ministries with meaningful social and spiritual impact that will intentionally launch church-planting movements with the ultimate goal of fueling world mission movements for God’s glory. Will you join us?

The Impact

Use your skills to make an eternal impact on the mission field. Every ministry we begin, every project we undertake, and every relationship we develop is geared toward sharing the good news of Jesus Christ. However, we know that simply sharing the gospel with someone is only part of our calling as missionaries: we are also called to walk alongside them and make disciples. If you love Jesus and want to reach people, then we have a place for you.
