Africa2Asia Backpackers

Discipleship Journey



Februari - December 2021

/ Cape Town, South Africa

Mobilizing the body ot Christ into God’s Heart for the Nations!

The Africa2Asia Backpackers Discipleship Journey is a 10-month long program in 10 countries with an emphasis on Discipleship, The Word of God and Missions & Evangelism, networking and mobilizing the body ot Christ into God’s Heart for the Nations.

How does it look like?

The Journey will start with a Discipleship Training School (DTS). The first six weeks will be spent attending lectures in Cape Town, South Africa, and along the beautiful Garden Route of South Africa. Then, we will proceed on to South East Asia for the remaining lectures and outreaches.

Following the end of the DTS will be the Discipleship Bible School (DBS) in this Journey, where we will have the opportunity to read through the entire Bible unpacking and discovering God’s Nature & Character, His Redemptive Plan and applying Biblical principles in a context of a community. The DBS part of the Journey will begin in East Asia and finish back in South Africa for the last four weeks of teaching and debrief.

You will get to see the beauty of the nations while experiencing the reality of the lives of many people crying out for their need for Jesus! We want to be the hands and feet for Jesus as we serve the communities we pass by during our lectures and outreaches. We will also be partnering with various ministries and churches in evangelism as well as to see the body of Christ participate in God's Global Purpose (World Missions). During the lecture phase, we will be having speakers that come from several nations that will help us understand and engage in God’s Big Story and how our individual story fits in to that. We cover subjects like The Nature and Character of God, The Bible, Holy Spirit, Identity in Christ, The Cross, Sin, Repentance & Forgiveness; Father Heart of God; God's Heart for the Nations; Redeeming Cultures; Missions & Evangelism; Destiny and Calling and many more... It is a time to get to Know God while learning and growing in Making Him Known. We will have a big focus in engaging where the church is not (unreached people groups or simply people that have never heard the gospel.) What does God have to say about racism, xenophobia, refugees, etc? These are just some of today’s big topics that we will discuss and gain a greater understanding of. We are called to be the light of the world according to Matthew 5:14, and we will look at how this is possible in the midst of a world that is asking questions and feeling more confused.

We will have teachers from all over the world, from various church and cultural backgrounds, give their input on the school. The topics will cover a wide range from how to Hear the Voice of God to having a Biblical Worldview, all with the intention of knowing God deeper. Outside of the classroom students can enjoy the local life by visiting all the coffee shops, surfing or taking a good book and reading it while overlooking the South Atlantic Ocean.
