Mission Accomplished

The ENTRUST Board has unanimously decided to conclude all our ministries at the end of 2014.

ENTRUST came into existence 10 years ago to serve the local churches in KZN, knowing that the local church is the great end of God’s plan in this world. Para-church organisations, like ENTRUST, come and go. They have a role to play and sometimes, once they have run their course, they should be closed, unlike the local church. In the wisdom of the ENTRUST Board, ENTRUST has run its course and served its purpose.

Since we began, we believe that by God’s grace many wonderful things have been accomplished. Many people are now serving the Lord with a greater grasp of the Bible, a keen awareness of the mission of the local church and a hunger to train and equip people for ministry in their own context.

We would like to thank all those who have been faithful friends to us: the pastors who taught courses and sent students, the students who were hungry to learn and grow, as well as our financial supporters who made all this possible. But chiefly we want to thank God for the opportunities that he gave us, and our prayer remains that the ministry that he entrusted to us for a season, will bring the Lord Jesus Christ great honour and glory, for many years to come.

Yours in the joyful service of Jesus,
Michael Schäfer
(ENTRUST Director of Training)
