2017 Campus Encounter
The Johannesburg Church of Christ is excited to announce the 2017 South African Campus Corps, Encounter: South Africa. We are inviting college students from our worldwide fellowship to come to Johannesburg from 17 July - 14 August, 2017 to encounter our beautiful culture, people, South African wildlife, and more importantly, to be equipped and empowered to help the tens of thousands of university students throughout South Africa to encounter the true Jesus Christ.
We have run the program over the last two years with over 35 students taking part. We have seen the tremendous impact it has made, thousands of students being reached out to, hundreds coming to bible discussions and around 10 people having been baptized as a direct result. We are so excited for YOU to join in the adventure!
The four-week program will begin with serving on HOPE Worldwide projects followed by ministry training from the staff of the Johannesburg Church of Christ along with international guest speakers. Teams would then be sent out to our beautiful campuses, including the University of Pretoria, the University of Johannesburg, and the University of the Witwatersrand, and possibly Cape Town and Durban. They will spend their days evangelizing, leading Bible talks, and studying the Bible with students on campus.
The church in Johannesburg will provide housing, two meals per day and transportation once the participants arrive in South Africa. We are asking those who come to provide their flight to and from Johannesburg’s OR Tambo Airport, as well as spending money for their daily lunches on campus, for a safari, and other personal expenses.
We are accepting a limited number of participants. If you are interested in attending, please email Jacques Genis at jpgenis(AT)yahoo.com no later than April 1st, 2017.
