Phase 1 is a 4-month discipleship training program where you are exposed to and experience different cultures and ministries. A biblical foundation for discipleship provides a structure for spiritual growth and healing. An introduction to biblical and transformational missions and topical electives connect the Bible to different disciplines. S.H.A.P.E. lets you explore how God created you and your purpose in God’s Kingdom. Towards the middle of Phase 1, we will help you to develop a customised PPP (Personalised Preparation Plan), based on what you have discerned and discovered about your place in building VCJF’s among the least reached. Phase 2 is the implementation of their PPP which is then a continuation of your journey in practical and holistic missions. The options for phase 2 can be determined before participants get to South Africa; however, we do have a Phase 2 coordinator that works with each participant to finalise their placement if this is still in doubt before they get here.

At Reach in South Africa we build our programme around four key areas: RELATIONSHIPS – Living in a vibrant community with people from all over the world INSTRUCTIONAL – Through lectures, workshops, assigned reading and training of practical tools, we lay a foundation for Biblical ministry. EXPERIENTIAL – Through practical ministry opportunities, electives and outreach, we give opportunities to understand the hands-on side of ministry. SPIRITUAL FORMATION – We are focused on discipling each individual through one-on-one mentoring, biblical teaching, and living out authentic community. A unique part of Reach in South Africa is Phase 2, which is contextual and personal, and you are free to choose to serve in a number of local or international ministries as we help you develop a plan for your future place of strategic involvement in seeing Vibrant Communities of Jesus Followers among the Least Reached. The timing of this phase varies – please contact your home office for options.

Participants need to: - Have a love for Jesus and a desire to share your faith - Be flexible and have willingness to work as a team - Be between 18-65 years old - Have at least conversational English language ability
Will there be accomodation provided?
During study weeks at the training base in Pretoria. On outreach in villages and towns in South Africa and possibly Lesotho, with local families and churches, amongst some of the least-reached people groups.
Will there be food provided?
Nourishing meals are planned by our OM base teams. Be prepared to also grow in teamwork as you prepare ingredients, cook, and wash plates for the rest of your Reach group, on occasion.
Do I need to make my own travel arrangements?
Participants (from overseas) should plan to arrive from the 1st of August 2022 and before the 4th of August 2022. Participants must plan to arrive at Johannesburg Airport. All travel during the outreach time is covered and organised by Reach. Phase 1 ends on the 4 Dec 2022, but an interim period allows participants (that are not joining Phase 2) to leave by the end of December. Participants joining Phase 2 will leave South Africa by the 30th June 2023, but this is flexible based on their Phase 2.
What should my health condition be like?
Participants must be generally in good health. Please advise us of any medical issues we should be aware of and/or dietary restrictions.
Do I need a visa?
