OUR CALLING

 

To use the Vast Gifting bestowed upon us by our Lord, using the Favour and Network within and without the Body of Believers in ‘Making a Way’ for folk into Ministry and Social Projects both locally and abroad through:

 

  • Training

  • Equipping

  • Deploying

 

HISTORY

Launched in 1997 we have operated in both South Africa, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Angola, Malawi, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, and South Sudan.

 

Since 2013 our efforts have been focused on the remote Luvale peoples of the far North West Zambia.  Working alongside the Church (Christian Community Church and Church of the Nazarene) and their vast network of fellowships, we have trained and facilitated workshops in Evangelism and Church Planting; using motorboats, canoes and 4x4’s to assist the church in mobilizing further afield.

Utilizing local and international resources, we have drilled over twenty-one boreholes, bringing fresh water to the folk, along with clothing and feeding numerous villagers. 

 

Through various building projects we have trained folk up in bricklaying, carpentry, plumbing and electrical installation.

 

As devout followers of Jesus we take the Lord’s Prayer literally, so when praying “…Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven…” we take that to include all the elements of civilization as God rules over ALL elements of civilization.

While the church spends most of its time talking about only two of the elements namely evangelism and morals, there are many more elements which need to be affected and permeated with the Creator’s Rule here on earth, including; Biology, Economics, Education, Arts, Authority, Geography, History, Language skills and Literature, Civil Law, Mathematics, Philosophy, Psychology, Sociology, Theology, Government and Kingdom. 

 

Deuteronomy 4:39 - “Know therefore today, take it to heart, that the Lord, He is God in Heaven above and on the earth below: there is no other.”

Colossians 2:8 – “See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ.”
