missionaries with overland missions

We are missionaries under the organization called Overland Missions. The vision of Overland Missions is to communicate the Gospel in remote places, with an emphasis on the new creation, in order to transform forgotten people, by making disciples and developing leaders. The strategy is to implement this vision through five on-going steps.

the steps

step 1: reconnaissance (recon)
pioneer remote areas in order to identify villages with limited or no Gospel presence

step 2: expeditions
evangelize unreached villages spearheading long term ministry

step 3: sector management
disciple new believers, identify potential leaders and identify felt-needs in order to bring humanitarian aid

step 4: indigenous leadership
train indigenous leaders to reach surrounding villages with the support of expeditions

step 5: sustainability
place equipped indigenous leaders to lead their people into sustainability both spiritually and physically

Working in the most remote parts of Angola

Our passion is to reach people for Christ in the far, uttermost and easily forgotten parts of the world as well as sustainably equip them in their God-given identity.

We are concentrating on the most remotes parts of Angola reaching out to the tribal people groups who have never even heard the name of Jesus resound in their ears.

let's go

All of our general calling is to reach people with the wonderful news of Jesus Christ. We are also called to equip people in the knowledge of who we are as new creation as well as knowing how we can start to fulfill the call God has given us individually. That’s called discipleship.
Join me in this journey to reach the unreached parts of the nations and equip the people in their God-given identity.

By partnering financially you attach your faith with us in seeing unreached and forgotten traditional people groups of Angola being reached with the Gospel through pioneer work and discipleship.
