4 BIBLE WORKERS PROJECT
Mission Cohort is a youth-led ministry which has been established to coordinate the planting of Seventh-day Adventist Churches in un-entered areas, and assist young people in developing mission groups in Seventh-day Adventist churches and campuses across South Africa. This includes the provision of training for mission work and facilitating networking among Seventh-Day Adventist young people and mission groups. Mission Cohort emerged from a collaborative project which was hosted by African Exodus (missioncohort.org) which ran from the 28th of June to the 14th of July, 2012.
Our ministry has three primary focuses: church planting, evangelism training and networking different mission groups. Our vision is to ensure that the Three Angels' Messages is proclaimed in un-entered areas.
We currently have two sites in which, by the grace of God, new members have been added to the faith through our missionary endeavours, namely Edenville and Arlington. Over 30 individuals made decisions for baptism, and six have been baptised. These precious souls are currently in need of nurturing and being organised into an official branch of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
To achieve this the executive committee of Misson Cohort has realised the need to station 4 Bible Workers whose primary duties will include assisting in nurturing, training and organising these new believers into an official branch of the church. The Bible workers will be stationed full time on the 2 sites for 18 months, and will each be receiving a monthly stipend. We have determined the total cost of the project to be R288 000. We therefore humbly solicit your financial aid in helping us realise this dream to have these two sites being transformed into churches that are run independently, functioning to make more disciples even after our departure.
MISSION COHORT CONFERENCE
As mentioned in the previous paragraphs, one of Mission Cohort's three primary focusses is evangelism training. Since 2012, we have run three successful weekend-long mission conferences that have been aimed at training and equipping young people for mission. All three were well attended and richly blessed and we received a number of testimonies regarding the impact that these training weekends had on the attendees.
We are currently planning another training conference, which will transpire from the 26th April 2018 - 1st May 2018. The conference is for about 500 delegates for the duration of 4 days. We have calculated the total cost of arranging and executing this conference to be R2 000 000. We therefore humbly solicit your financial aid in assisting us to successfully organise and execute this evangelism training weekend. We anticipate how more young people in South Africa will be revived and better equipped for evangelism through this conference.
