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 degree in social work and we prefer 6-12 months experience with families, mothers and children; skills needed involve health and wellness assessment; home and school visits; first aid; dietary, health and hygiene counseling; HIV/AIDS testing, treatment, and counseling, death and loss counseling, and community development centers; must be willing to learn the Zulu language; goal is training, discipleship, and mentoring of African Christians trained in social work to carry on the ministry over a period of 5-10 years.
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?
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.
