The Durban team is interested in skilled tradespeople to come and teach their specialty to South Africans. This country has an unemployment rate of 30-40%. Learning a valuable trade can change someone’s life. As they learn a trade, students will be plugged into the local church and will be exposed to the Gospel of Christ. We are interested in carpenters, welders, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, bakers, and those with computer skills. It is not a requirement to learn a foreign language in order to minister in Durban.
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 trade 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 have a heart for helping others, then we have a place for you.
