Call us to set up your custom international mission trip in South Africa.

Olievenhoutbosch is a township with a population of approximately 100,000 people, strategically placed 30 minutes south of Tshwane (Pretoria) as a development area. The township was established in 1998 as a squatter’s camp with makeshift tin 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.

Teams that visit Olievenhoutbosch will be working alongside the Olievenhoutbosch Christian School and the Trust Hope and Faith after school program. They have a holistic approach to ministry; meeting the children’s physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.

Many of the children of Olievenhoutbosch do not receive the love and care they need in the afternoons and evenings when they arrive home. The Olievenhoutbosch Christian School and the Trust Hope Faith after school program strive not only to meet the educational needs of the children but also to offer a nurturing environment to help them develop other areas of their lives. OCS and THF desire to see the children grow into well-rounded leaders for a brighter future.

Register your team today to serve alongside teachers and the after care mentors as they educate and instill Godly principals to the children of Olievenhoutbosch.

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 Hartbeespoortdam, visit African markets, experience a cultural village and much, much more.

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.
