Ministry in South Africa

We believe God is calling us to go to Cape Town, South Africa and serve Him there long term.  South Africa is a diverse country with a rich culture and beautiful people, but many have never heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  In March 2017, we finished our first year of ministry there and are now raising support that will allow us to go and minister long term.  Our focus is to not only share the Gospel and make disciples but also plant churches and help develop the surrounding communities
If you would like more information about our ministry please take a look at our ministry packet.  You can find it here.

Matthew

When I was seven, I believed in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Throughout my childhood, I grew in the Lord through Bible reading, worshiping and serving at church and in prayer with the Lord. It has been a blessing to serve in various church ministries including teaching Sunday School classes, being a Youth Leader, leading a small group and preaching. I graduated from Cedarville University with a Bachelor’s in Business Management and from Moody Graduate School with a Master’s in Spiritual Formation and Discipleship. God used my education, several mission trips and church ministry to help me understand His calling into full-time ministry overseas.

 At the age of eight, I prayed to received Christ as my Savior and began my walk with the Lord. I have continued to grow in my love for the Lord and have seen his power working in my life My call to missions came during nursing school, at Northern Illinois University, where God opened my heart for the sick and dying. It was then I realized God was calling me to serve Him overseas.  After several short-term mission trips, God opened an opportunity for me to serve in Nigeria for two years helping people who were living with HIV/AIDS. There is no greater joy in this world than sharing the gospel and seeing a life being transformed by the amazing love of God.
