Our time will be spent in the informal settlements (squatter camps) in and around Johannesburg.  While Johannesburg is a modern, upscale city, hundreds of thousands of tribal Africans live in small shacks.  Most don’t have their own water or electricity .  Many are bound in fear from false religions that have saturated these informal settlements.  Teams will work in small groups with an Impact Africa staff member and translator and go shack-to-shack to do ministry.  Pre-trip training takes place though Launch to ensure you are equipped and feel prepared.  We will also spend a day at Impact Kids and Impact Baby Rescue. 

Our evangelism and discipleship initiatives focus on strategically saturating each community with the  Gospel of Jesus Christ. The long-term strategy involves community saturation plans through daily house to house evangelism and weekly Bible studies (discipleship). The weekly Bible studies are led by a few of our local African staff who have been journeying with us for many years and have a passion to make disciples. Our aim is to train up local Africans to reach their neighbors with the Gospel; Africans reaching Africans. It is clear that the harvest is not only ripe, but is rotting away. It is our mandate to advance the Gospel within these communities with a team of local staff, volunteers and short-term missionaries; each play an important and strategic part in advancing the Gospel throughout the country of South Africa.

We have established strong partnerships with the local Church so that each person who makes a decision to follow Christ can immediately get plugged into a local Church to be discipled and grow in their faith. Together, these local churches are leading weekly Bible Studies right in the heart of these communities. Through these partnerships we are able to mentor and disciple the local Church to actively play their part in fulfilling the Great Commission in their own communities. We have a desire to raise up Africans so that they can in turn reach their own people; Africans reaching Africans with the Gospel!
