THE MESSAGE FAMILY
THE MESSAGE TRUST HAS BEEN WORKING IN THE UK FOR MORE THAN 25 YEARS WITH A SPECIAL FOCUS ON SHARING THE LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST WITH THE HARDEST-TO-REACH YOUNG PEOPLE
Over the last few years, God has opened doors for the movement to develop, share and contextualise the models developed in the UK to reach tough, urban youth internationally. The Message launched their first international hub in Cape Town, South Africa in February 2014.
The mark of a life changed by Jesus is the desire to see others changed, too. We believe young people in South Africa can go from being the problem to the solution.
We want to use the talents and resources that God has graciously given us to create pathways to success for tens of thousands of urban teenagers and young adults, through creativity, enterprise and community work.
Our dream for all those we work with is that they will grow into 'somebodies' not 'nobodies' – discovering destinies they never knew they had.
We are unashamed about our witness and dependence on Jesus Christ – the surest hope for the transformation of our society.
