Cambridge, South Africa

Photo by: Anthony Jones/ ITeams
Cambridge, located in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, is a community suffering from extreme levels of poverty, lack of employment and adequate education. A large percent of the 30,000 members of the community live in shacks lacking access to food, freedom, and forgiveness. We believe this community has a lot of untapped potential and we are excited to unlock possibilities.

THIS COMMUNITY IS ONE OF OUR SPONSORED COMMUNITIES click to learn more

We work in communities throughout the world. Each community is unique and its resource needs vary. All our teams are committed to transformation. The community highlighted here is poised for growth. They're eager to connect with financial partners, organizational partners, and new strategic personnel. You can play a key role.



Community Overview

Cambridge is full of hopelessness, despair, and a vision for the future. High levels of alcoholism, drug addiction, and prostitution exist. Through partnership with Grace Community Baptist Church, however, there is hope for a better tomorrow as we bring integrated community transformation to Cambridge by the power of God.

Our Response

We strive to do this through a systematic, intentional approach of empowering the local leadership to carry out their vision for the community and to spread this vision throughout the community as they encounter the living God and His life-changing power.

In particular, we are partnering with Grace Community Baptist Church (GCBC) under the leadership of Pastor Vuyo Mkonwana to join the community and to establish relationships that will allow us to carry out integrated community transformation. Currently, GCBC is running multiple ministries with the vision of transforming the community.

INTEGRATED COMMUNITY TRANSFORMATION

ENTER

When we enter a community, we seek to relate to and understand the community through the eyes of Jesus. This includes pre-training and ongoing on-field research.

EVALUATE and ENGAGE

We repeat a collaborative cycle that aims to work alongside others in the community to identify and assess both needs and resources. Alongside the community, we encourage initiatives guided by a strategy and help implement them.

EXPAND

As transformation takes hold in a community our role changes. We avoid creating unhealthy dependencies and focus on what Jesus is doing within the community. This typically leads to expansion as transformation impacts surrounding communities.
