Opportunity

Church Planters

The Position

Through our INSPIRE George initiative, we desire to begin 4-6 new churches over the next 10 years. In order to do that, we need couples with ministry experience that will come and help us begin and then lead churches to be self-supporting.

The Need

Described by Archbishop Desmond Tutu as "the Rainbow Nation" due to the amount of diverse people groups living there, South Africa is a country with profound spiritual need. From much-needed racial reconciliation, to an influx of new religions being combined with ancient superstitions, South Africa desperately needs the reconciling truth of the gospel.

Additionally, the AIDS virus continues to hit South Africa in a brutal way. Very few families in the townships are unaffected by this deadly disease. Many children are left to be raised by their grandparents or to fend for themselves on the streets, because their parents have died. There is great need for the local church to step into these people’s lives with hope.

Currently, our missionaries are hard at work in four distinct regions or South Africa: Cape Town, Durban, Garden Route, and George.

The Impact

Use your skills to help fulfill the Great Commission. As Christians, Jesus has called us to go and make disciples of all nations, and we believe that process isn’t completed until these disciples are gathered into a local community of believers: a church. Church planting is the heartbeat of evangelism, and it’s at the core of who we are at ABWE. It’s hard work, but for those called to the challenge, there is no greater reward on earth than watching a community of believers grow in their faith, and begin to understand their own role in the Great Commission.
