Internet Ministry in South Africa

About our Ministry

Internet Ministry

A powerfull, global ministry:

Too long Satan has used the internet to his advantage.  Globally, online ministries are reaching hundreds of millions of people at any time, anywhere in the world with the Good News of Jesus Christ through the internet!

During 2006, after 20 years as full-time staff of Campus Crusade for Christ, the Lord developed a ministry before us that still takes our breath away with its impact and influence.

From all over South Africa, as well as from all over the world, people are contacting us through our web pages.  The anonymity of the internet opens the door to incredibly personal ministry – you will be amazed by the honesty and openness that is possible in online communities.  Online mentoring is a way to share the love of Christ one-on-one through email.  Within 24-48 hours we reach out to people by “coming alongside” them and encourages them by (a) praying for them and providing resources, and (b) sharing the next step in their spiritual journey.

EVANGELISM  (Jesus as Saviour!),  FOLLOW-UP (Adventure of Christianity!), SPIRITUAL GROWTH  (Live as conqueror!)

The mentor provides resources, shares hope and gives spiritual direction to the person they are ministering to. The whole interaction takes place through email, which provides endless possibilities for reaching thousands of people all over the world on any schedule.

The Internet presents a fantastic opportunity for ministry, and we receive regular testimonies of changed lives!!

Wellness on the Farms

This unique programme has a holistic approach:
It is a community development programme which stretches over an extended period of time, supported by audio visual presentations, interactive teaching, mentoring and coaching.

Aimed to serve the farm worker, farmer, his family and leadership on different levels in order to help lead them to Wellness:

  • Spiritual, Intellectual, Physical; Emotional & Social.
  • The outcome is constantly evaluated by pre-chosen criteria.
  • People are challenged to make choices that lead to life change.
  • Responsibility partners are chosen to limit backsliding to a minimum.

This extended approach inevitably leads to change in thought, which, in turn,  leads to life change, resulting in a happy, loyal worker.
Labor relationships, upliftment, life skills development and hygiene inside and outside the house are some of the aspects that are constantly addressed in the social upliftment.
