• Africa Trek

  • 1

The Africa Trek is discipleship on the move. We laugh, cry and do life together whilst travelling through Africa. We focus on following Jesus be that in the classroom, on the road or in a remote African village.

Every Trek has a different flavour, but all Treks have the same core value – to disciple the participants (Trekkies) and equip them to be effective disciple makers. The Africa Trek seeks to teach every Trekkie to take ownership of their faith, learn to hear God’s voice for themselves and understand their identity in Him. We experience this through outreaches to different communities, where we are pushed to our limits and are out of our comfort zone. It is at this point that God uses the experiences around us to further disciple and shape us into the men and women He created us to be.

We thus get to practice what we learn as we travel to different places and participate in a number of outreaches including sports and children’s ministries as well as door-to-door evangelism, with a focus on working with the unreached.

So come without any expectations, come hungry to hear from God and come excited, ready for a heap of fun!

 

Trekkie Testimonies

  • Little did I know or expect of the impact that was my "Africa Trek".  It not only altered my view of Africa but it revolutionized my view of God through his sovereign hand working in us and through us to impact the people we encountered. I cannot but with the utmost urgency and recommendation, commend to you the Africa Trek.  If you are sitting on the fence, consider me kicking you towards the venture. Greg HayesFrom USA
  • The Africa Trek was a life-changing opportunity where I experienced God moving through me, touching my soul, and blessing others. I got to witness the Holy Spirit at work in deepest, darkest Africa. I could be a part of Christ's international church—a part that is obedient, active, and going to the ends of the earth! Trina SkinnerFrom South Africa

FAQs

  • Who can do the Trek? +

    Anyone over the age of 18 is welcome on the Trek. If you are ready to be discipled, keen to deepen your relationship with God and experience His work in Africa - the Africa Trek is for you! Our expectation of anyone who joins the Trek is for them to be open to what God says and to be willing to obey Him.

  • Is the Trek a Holiday/Vacation? +

    The Africa Trek environment is one most conducive for discipleship. This is often outside most people’s comfort zones and as such is not a holiday. Accommodation and living in general is basic, it is often an uncomfortable and challenging environment, especially over a three month period. However, God speaks loudest through these moments and we continue to see the beauty and importance of living a life of surrender for Him.

  • What about special food needs or allergies? +

    As the Africa Trek often travels to remote areas, it is unfortunately not possible to accommodate people with special food needs or allergies. As such, another field and/or ministry may be better suited for your needs.
