Our vision is that every international student in South Africa should have a Christian friend, giving them the opportunity to respond to the message of Jesus Christ and return home with the desire and skills to spread the Gospel in their own country, and throughout the world. With this vision in mind we want to equip, mobilise and enable the church in South
Africa to respond to this

South Africa is one of the most popular places on the continent of Africa for students to come and study from every
country on the African continent, including closed countries. God is bringing the nations to our doorstep. South Africa receives many international students with some having aspirations to return to their country to be influencers in all spheres of their countries including government structures, Their sphere of influence to bring about change on the continent is vast. Most universities have 10-20% of their students from countries other than South Africa and giving a huge harvest field and a vast mission opportunity right here on our doorstep.

int-students-2We are working alongside churches to develop ways of reaching out to these students with the message of the Gospel.
