The Message Trust
THE MESSAGE VISION/MISSION
The Message Trust exists to raise up generations of urban heroes, creating opportunities for tens of thousands of urban teenagers and young adults to hear the good news of Jesus in word and demonstrated in action.
generations of urban heroes ARE RAISED UP through our four ministry streams.
OUR MESSAGE VALUES
We are a passionate people; passionate for Jesus and passionate for the least, the last and the lost.
We are about empowering local churches to become missional and focus on transforming their communities.
We are a family that spurs each other on to play our part in changing the world in Jesus’ name.
We are a movement that is willing to try new things to reach young people for Christ.
THE MESSAGE FAMILY
THE MESSAGE TRUST HAS BEEN WORKING IN THE UK FOR MORE THAN 25 YEARS WITH A SPECIAL FOCUS OF SHARING THE LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST WITH THE HARDEST TO REACH YOUNG PEOPLE.
Over the last couple of years, God has opened doors for the movement to develop, share and contextualise the models developed in the UK to reach tough urban youth internationally. This led to The Message launching their first international hub in Cape Town, South Africa, in February 2014.
The mark of a life changed by Jesus is the desire to see others changed too. We believe young people in South Africa can go from being the problem to the solution.
We want to use the talents and resources that God has graciously given us to create pathways to success for tens of thousands of urban teenagers and young adults through creativity, enterprise and community work.
Our dream for all those we work with is that they will grow into ‘somebodies’ not ‘nobodies’ – discovering destinies they never knew they had.
We are unashamed about our witness and dependence on Jesus Christ – the surest hope for the transformation of our society.
