The Message Trust is a worldwide movement passionately sharing the love of Jesus Christ in words and actions with the hardest-to-reach young people and communities.

We are passionate about reaching young people in South Africa – seeking to break the cycle of poverty, unemployment, gangsterism and crime. Our purpose is to raise up generations of urban heroes. Thousands of youth from the margins who have found their hope and purpose in Jesus. They are transformational leaders who are emotionally, socially and spiritually mature. Urban Heroes are not only transformed but transform others, creating ripple effects of change in their families, communities and nation.

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.

Isaiah 43:19
