Our flagship offering includes both our REACH foundation training (5 months) and our Internship phase (6 months). This 11-month program in a multi-cultural environment provides participants with both classroom and practical ministry experience in preparation to serve in a least reached field. You will be able to put your classroom learning into practice in the real world through outreaches and ministry opportunities. This may include practical work serving one another, ministry placements, volunteering and visiting existing OM ministries or churches, and one-day outreach opportunities to share the gospel. There will also be longer, crosscultural outreaches to give you a taste of different mission contexts. These experiences will train and prepare you for future ministry.

The full 11-month programme offers participants the best preparation for least reached ministry, however, participants may join for the 5-month and 6-month programmes separately. A unique part of REACH in South Africa is our Internship program (6 months). This program will place you in a location and situation that is customised for your needs and that will prepare you to serve the least reached among the nations. Participants that have completed REACH or already have ministry experience can (after evaluation) choose to take part in an Internship programme to gain missions experience in a specific field in preparation for long-term placement.

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 - 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.
Do I need to make my own travel arrangements?
Participants from overseas must plan to arrive at Johannesburg Airport. For the date of arrival please contact your home office. All travel during the outreach time is covered and organised by Reach.
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.
