Has God been talking to you about sharing your faith with others? 

Has He laid a particular people group or country on your heart? 


Do you know that God is calling you to be a labourer in the fields that are ready to be harvested?

....and yet you are still at home, struggling to follow Him, because you just do not feel you have the knowledge, training, skills or practical experience needed to step out?

Why not take the first step by joining our Missions Discipleship Training (MDT) programme to deepen your Christian walk and get equipped for ministry at the same time?

Come and learn more about God, yourself, team life and a variety of ministries in a cross-cultural environment that is guaranteed to blow your worldview apart!

The MDT is an intensive programme which is focused on helping you to live life as a committed Christian and to be equipped for the future ministry opportunities God has prepared for you.
