A Pair of Financial Decisions

Upon recommendation of our Finance Committee, the Home Council has recently made a couple of changes regarding the Mission’s finances. I thought that you might like to hear about them. The first pertains to missionary allowances. The Council reviews target allowance every year. They consider a few different factors, the most important of which is the opinion of our missionaries themselves. A survey of missionary opinions revealed that current allowance levels seem about right. That ... [Continue Reading]

Commissioned to Christ’s Cause

Over the last few months, we have re-introduced the Handbook that stands at the heart of our missionary community. We have recently arrived at the final chapter, and are nearing the document’s concluding paragraphs. This final chapter is all about Jesus. Jesus stands at the heart of God’s mission in the world. God accomplishes his expansive, gracious, redemptive purposes for the world… through Jesus. Our role, as it turns out, is a “commissioned” role. If ... [Continue Reading]

Hospitality Host in South Africa

What Is freeWord?

freeWord is Bible reading for transformation and Bible reading for the sake of the world. We prayerfully gather around the Word of God as people being addressed and as people expecting God will create something new through His Word. We aim to see people led from being people who study scripture, to people who read the Bible, to people who hear God's Word, to people who live Word-shaped lives. We are committed to the text. We are committed to the task.

We gather in prayer and engage cross-culturally in Bible reading exercises, creating a space in which the children of God can be nurtured, developed, and mobilized in His mission through short and long-term missionary exercises. We communally discern the individual and corporate outworking of commissioned living in our communities and churches. We encourage one another in our distinct relational, evangelistic, and service efforts.

We envision a missional fellowship prayerfully engaged by God's Word that (1) overcomes social barriers erected by economic disparity and racial identity, (2) values international partnership and cooperation via short-term missionary exercises, and (3) affects a renewed passion for lay participation in mission.

Where Is freeWord?

freeWord aims to engage with the fishing village of Hangberg (Hang Mountain), Hout Bay, Western Cape, South Africa.

As a result of South Africa's apartheid era, Hangberg has become culturally and socially isolated from mainstream society. It remains a forgotten, ignored, and impoverished area.

Specific Long-Term OpportunitY

Hospitality Host

We are also praying for an individual or couple to serve in the ministry of hospitality. We desire that they have a pioneering attitude, a vision for Bible reading as a way of engaging relational frontiers, adapt well to regular cultural displacement, travel well, and can provide a welcoming space for visitors and volunteers of both long- and short-term teams that might engage with the freeWord communities.
