WMI trip to South Africa

This immersion trip is designed to explore faith formation and community building activities in metropolitan Pretoria and Johannesburg, with specific attention to ministry responses to spiritual displacement, social fragmentation, and pursuits of groundedness on the part of highly mobile urban-core populations. Participants will engage with residents in urban townships and center-city neighborhoods and with leaders and staff persons from local congregations and organizations pursuing the wholeness and flourishing of these urban communities. Participants also will be exposed to important sites of memory that place the South African context in broader historical and cultural perspective, including the Apartheid Museum and commemorative sites in Soweto Township.

Choose a giving level


Encourage Me!

Students and others are able to participate in a World Mission Initiative mission opportunity because they are encouraged by a classmate, professor, WMI staff, and especially because of the financial support they are promised. Thank you for strengthening this promise through your gift of support!


Pack Me!

WMI encourages participants to "pack light" by leaving behind both items and attitudes that might hinder their witness. Your gift resources participants with what they really need both in their suitcases and also in their hearts - humility, faith, and love - as they participate in God's mission.


Pray for Me!

WMI sends participants with a strong foundation of prayer and with confidence in the promise of the Holy Spirit's presence. Your gift of support for participants' travel costs gives tangible testimony to the strong prayer support that surrounds them as well.


Mobilize Me!

Participants are mobilized into God's mission in a lasting way when they form relationships, as happens through Christian partners around the globe who welcome WMI trip participants to join them in ministry. Your gift gives participants that opportunity to form lasting relationships with church leaders around the world.


Send Me!

Your gift encourages, equips, packs, prays for, and mobilizes participants well on their way to participating in what Jesus Christ is up to in another part of God's world! Thank you for sending participants on a life-changing, ministry-shaping World Mission Initiative trip!
