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 6 have been baptized. 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 Mission Cohort has realized the need to station 4 Bible Workers whose primary duties will include assisting in nurturing, training and organizing 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 R432 000. We therefore humbly solicit your financial aid in helping us realize this dream to have these two sites being transformed into churches that are run independently, functioning to make more disciples even after our departure.
