South Africa 2020

We are excited about this year’s ministry trip to South Africa. This will be our 6th year ministering there, and, each year we have seen the Kingdom of God break in so powerfully! We’ve seen hundreds come to the Lord, primarily one on one through signs and wonders, healings and notable miracles such as the blind seeing, the deaf hearing, those who have been crippled now walking along with many other powerful kingdom encounters in the streets, townships, malls, restaurants, and in the churches.

These ministry trips to South Africa have been all about equipping the saints and churches to learn how to live out a lifestyle of putting Jesus on display with love and power. The uniqueness of these trips is you will have the hands on equipping opportunities to see the sick being healed through your hands as well as helping lead people into a personal relationship with Jesus through the power and demonstration of the Gospel. You will also have the opportunity to learn to equip others to do the same.

We are offering four separate ministry trips this year! You have the choice to pick from one of the four trips to be a part of Brian Blount/Serve the Nations, the mission arm of Crestwood Vineyard Church.

Below are the following 4 separate ministry trips that are available.

  • Depart Johannesburg: September 18, 2020

In Johannesburg, we will have the opportunity to travel to some of our Vineyard friends and family, in two new areas – Polokwane and Bella Bella. And of course, a trip to Joburg would not be complete without visiting our friends at Emthonjeni – a non-profit/church serving communities that have been greatly affected by HIV/AIDS. We will also speak to the Leadership team of Vineyard Pastors in this Northern area.

Trip 2: Cape Town, South Africa 2020

We will help His Life Vineyard with their ministry to the informal settlement of Malacca, as well as venturing to another informal settlement in the Valley of a Thousand Hills. This trip will require much walking in areas that may be physically challenging.
