Integral Mission South Africa is an emerging network of people, project and church leaders committed to addressing all forms of poverty and joining God’s mission – with nothing left out!  Our 2014 conference represents an opportunity to collect, connect and collaborate with followers of Jesus who are seeking first God’s Kingdom.  ’Just Life’ is open to all individuals, but some of the community based initiatives joining us include:

I Learn to Live - bridging the gap between school leavers in disadvantaged areas, tertiary education institutions and centres of learning, by providing the knowledge and resources which are available to us as an organisation. We believe every South African child should be given the opportunity to learn in order to become equipped so that they may sustain themselves and their families in the future, rather than relying on others to do so.
