What is IWC
IWC is a missions mobilizing agency, focused on facilitating annual short term mission trips. The essence of these projects is providing students with the opportunity to share their faith and the Gospel with young people their own age. IWC focuses specifically on sending students (age 15-24 years) on short-term mission projects and provides training and necessary support to ensure effective ministry on the ground. We have a long-standing partnership with IWC USA and receive teams from the USA who join with us in ministry here in South Africa.
While our primary aim is to take the Gospel into local communities who need it, we have a large focus on our project participants as we hope to create a culture for mission in their lives. In South Africa there is currently no outlet or organization for youth and young adults to easily join a project for a missions experience. Our aim as IWCSA is to create a movement in our country and our local churches where the culture for mission is the norm and the accessibility to short-term mission projects is easy. While our immediate attention focuses on local South African communities, we dream of facilitating international projects that South African youth and young adults can easily join.
