We believe deeply in the incredible wealth of talent within the singles' ministry. Singles have the talent, heart, time, energy and resources to have a transformational impact on the world! The potential is limitless, and our goal is to unleash it! Join us in South Africa as we study and imitate the heart of Jesus. Jesus left an impact on everyone he touched. His life was about preaching, teaching, helping and healing. Together we will study and imitate Him.
We will serve by working daily with preschool children in the crèches (US lingo: preschools), loving them, teaching them, and playing with them. In the afternoons, we will participate in the parent support groups, an incredible opportunity to watch how changing the life of a mom can change history for a family. We will make home visits in the poorest of the townships. These visits have a powerful way of putting our own lives in perspective as we hear the stories of the people, and love and serve them. After the intensity that comes with pouring our hearts out, we will need some refreshing.
As this program is aimed toward singles ministry leaders, each evening we spend time together, sharing our stories, studying the life of Jesus, and learning from each other how to grow in our devotion to God, and how to lead others. We will be joined by leaders in singles ministries in South Africa for an Interactive Leadership Weekend, where we will bring together ideas and practices from our ministries.
We become a team in South Africa- a team committed to carrying with us what we have learned to humbly, but confidently serve in our home churches. We love how the participants become a family that connects several times during the year to strengthen and encourage each other. Together we make one great disciple. Come join us in South Africa.
See you there!
Dr. Mark and Lin Ottenweller
