Dare to take a step further and join us!
Acts29 finally returns to the African continent and this time to the southern tip. For the first time, we are organizing a school in the beautiful and multifaceted South Africa.
Acts29 school means trips over mountains and vast landscapes. It will challenge you and make friends for life. But above all, it will give you time and tools to explore your faith. Our starting point is that God is the same today as when the first disciples lived. Acts29 is a place where we want to give God time to show who He is and what He wants to do in our lives. You will get to grow in a way you never did before, that much we can promise you.
South Africa is a country with both a rich and painful history. The country has been colonized and exploited by the Dutch, English, and Germans. The white population came to be called «boer» which means «farmer». They expanded their farms and enslaved the country’s black inhabitants. Today, the country is perhaps best known for the period of apartheid between 1950-1990. Inspired by the racial theories of Nazi Germany, the large black population was subdued by a minority of whites. In 1990, freedom fighter Nelson Mandela, who was later elected president, was released, and South Africa was able to begin the journey toward modernization and freedom that continues today.
The Acts29 school will have its base at Phumelela Bible Collage which is up in the north-eastern corner of the country. The nearest big cities are Maputo and the capital Pretoria, about 20 miles to the west. Phumelela BC was founded by the Swedish Alliance Mission in 1961 and is today run by the partner church «The Alliance Church in South Africa», TACSA.
TACSA is the church we will cooperate with and in whose churches we will have practice in different parts of the country.
