What We Will Do

Phase 1 is a 4-month discipleship training program where you are exposed to and experience different cultures and ministries. A biblical foundation for discipleship provides a structure for spiritual growth and healing. An introduction to biblical and transformational missions and topical electives connect the Bible to different disciplines. S.H.A.P.E. lets you explore how God created you and your purpose in God’s Kingdom. Towards the middle of Phase 1, we will help you to develop a customized PPP (Personalized Preparation Plan), based on what you have discerned and discovered about your place in building VCJF’s among the least reached. Phase 2 is the implementation of their PPP which is then a continuation of your journey in practical and holistic missions. The options for phase 2 can be determined before participants get to South Africa; however, we do have a Phase 2 coordinator that works with each participant to finalize their placement if this is still in doubt before they get here. At MDT+ in South Africa we build our programme around four key areas: RELATIONSHIPS – Living in a vibrant community with people from all over the world INSTRUCTIONAL – Through lectures, workshops, assigned reading and training of practical tools, we lay a foundation for Biblical ministry. EXPERIENTIAL – Through practical ministry opportunities, electives and outreach, we give opportunities to understand the hands-on side of ministry. SPIRITUAL FORMATION – We are focused on discipling each individual through one-on-one mentoring, biblical teaching, and living out authentic community. A unique part of MDT+ in South Africa is Phase 2, which is contextual and personal, and you are free to choose to serve in a number of local or international ministries as we help you develop a plan for your future place of strategic involvement in seeing Vibrant Communities of Jesus Followers among the Least Reached. The timing of this phase varies – please contact your home office for options.
