Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to be a Christian to work for The Message Trust South Africa?

As an evangelical ministry, our mission and core values here at The Message compel us to apply a Christian approach to our work. It is therefore a genuine legal ‘occupational requirement’ that post holders must be committed Christians who believe in the Lordship of Christ and the authority of scripture, and who wants to see the Christian message communicated effectively to young people.

We are, however, a very broad church and as long as applicants for these positions are practicing Christians and will bring a Christian heart and mind to the role it doesn’t matter what creed or church tradition they are part of.
