South Africa Mission Trips
Olievenhoutbosch / Vastfotein / Moolplaas, SA

Your 14-days in South Africa will allow you the opportunity to experience three very rich experiences in three seperate locations - Olievenhoutbousch, Vastfontein and Mooiplaas all while being based in the central town of Centurion.

Olievenhoutbosch is a township with a population of approximately 100,000 people, strategically placed south of Tshwane (Pretoria) as a development area. The township was established in 1998 as a squatter’s camp with make-shift shacks. Today the area has neighborhoods with very small houses funded and built by the government. Various indigenous ministries and organizations exist in Olievenhoutbosch to serve and uplift the community. By joining this "community in motion" your opportunities include working with a local Christian school, serving alongside after school programs & serving at a disability center.

Vastfontein is about 70km from Centurion and is mostly a farming community. The team will do outreach in the squatter camps / informal settlements located in the area. The team will do one-on-one evangelsim, playing soccer with local teams, visit the brothel and do some work on the farm; either in helping to harvest oranges, or to clear the fields.

Mooiplaas is an informal settlement close to Centurion with approximately 16,000 residents. Some people have lived in this community for as long as 20 years with barely any resources. There are no schools, or formal creches, no clinics or hospitals. Their basic needs include clean water, electricity, health/medical services, law and order, job creation, toilet facilities, etc.

To view more details about the specific outreaches please select the “Mission Trip Details” link on the right hand side of this page.

If teams want to do sightseeing trips (and are willing to pay for it themselves) we can work that into the program. In the Centurion area the team can visit a Game Park, interact with elephants and monkeys, visit Museums, experience Johannesburg and Hartebeespoortdam, visit African markets, experience a cultural village and much, much more.

Please Call 888-475-6414 to customize and schedule your trip. You can select your dates, the length of your trip and then work with our staff to customize what your team will be able to do. Plan on $75/day should you choose to alter the length of your mission trip.

Are you an Individual?
All members of a mission trip must be part of a team of at least two (2) people. If you are an Individual, find someone to go with you and then register for your specific trip! If you are currently a high school or middle school student you must travel with an adult team leader or a parent who serves as the team leader and registers your team for the mission trip.

Have additional questions or don't see the dates you're looking for? Please call us at the EM Service Center at 888-475-6414 for custom dates and to learn more about EM Mission Trips.

Registering for a Mission Trip

Grab Space
If you're in the process of finalizing your mission trip plans but are not quite ready to take the step of registration, you can click the "Grab Space" link to temporarily reserve spots for 30 days. There is no financial obligation involved in Grabbing Space. It merely lets us know of your interest in a specific trip and also gives you some extra time (30 days) to get your details in place before you actually register your team. We make every effort to maintain a hold on your spaces for the full 30 days be alerting you to the interest of other teams in those same dates. It is important to note that your spaces are not secured until you have registered your team.

*Trips labeled "Unspecified" are currently available to more than one specific group type. The type of group accepted during those weeks is usually determined by the type of group that registers first.

Trips are filled on a "first come, first served" basis and registering teams receive full priority over all teams with current or previously grabbed spaces. If you need to extend your "Space Grab" hold beyond 30 days, please contact the EM office at 888-475-6414 as soon as possible to see if that option is available.

Register Now
You must register your team to secure space for your mission trip. We understand there are many details involved in putting together a mission team and it can be difficult to project your final team size at the beginning of this process. If you're not sure of your final team size, we suggest you make a conservative participant estimate when you register. As your team develops, you can increase your team size, providing space is still available, by calling us at 888-475-6414.

Team registration involves a financial commitment, and decreasing your team size once you have registered will involve a financial penalty. To learn more, refer to our Registration & Payment Information.
