Local Ministry Network

GAP Ministries network with ministries and churches that shares the burden for community transformation and evangelism. They share this vision by loving and leading their members and staff in biblical transformation paradigms and principles that are necessary to see cities and nations transformed and the Great Commission fulfilled. That is the formal side of it. It is pretty much about building and maintaining relationships over a long time.

We focus therefore on the following:

* Prayer: We pray together regularly for the needs and challenges unique to every project. GAP Ministries has adopted the Nehemiah Strategy to implement city-wide prayer in the Nelson Mandela Metro.

* Encouragement: We encourage one another to implement the Biblical principles of transformation, without them forsaking their unique and God-given identity and calling. We, therefore, spent time in fellowship, prayer, and of course, brainstorming ways to see the transformation of communities.

* Training: We spent time together analyzing challenges and opportunities and identifying ways and means needed for constant growth and positive change to lead to transformation. We are using the Bible School on Wheels of Teach Every Nation and farming methods from Foundations for Farming.

* Support: From time to time we support special initiatives in the form of resources or logistics.
