Mission Trip | South Africa

October 19th - October 29th, 2018


We are excited to partner with Impact Africa in Johannesburg, South Africa, to impact the lives of some of South Africa’s poorest through hands-on ministry experiences. We will be serving on the front lines of missions in many practical ways such as: House-to-House Ministry, Children’s Programs, Youth Ministry Service Projects, Primary and High School Programs, and Humanitarian Relief*.

Throughout the week we will be taking part in what the long-term Impact Africa missionaries are doing year-round. Having the opportunity to see God’s creation, learn new traditions and culture, hear the stories of His children, and share your own story will be an unforgettable, heart-changing experience!

If accepted on the team, attendance to pre-trip trainings and team building and post-trip debriefing will be required by all team members. Training prior to the trip and on-site will be provided to prepare and equip our team to effectively share the Gospel. Meeting dates to be announced.

*Activities and ministry will be defined in greater detail as trip date approaches.
