About Team

About Durban City Team

Durban is a major urban city of over 3.5 million people with significant cultural and linguistic diversity. For example, more East Indians live in Durban than in any other city outside India. Some communities are primarily Muslim or Hindu, while others are comprised of Europeans of Dutch and British descent who enjoy the tropical environment and the urban vibe of Durban. The 51% majority IsiZulu speakers attend churches that often blend Christian and animistic beliefs, building rituals around Old Testament laws of prohibition and combining them with veneration of ancestors and indigenous expressions of church. Current estimations are that there are 3 million unsaved people in Durban. Your gift will enable us to share the gospel, make disciples, and start new churches throughout the city in many of these communities. 

Durban is also host to refugees from countries like the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, Burundi, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, and Somalia. These communities are some in which our team walks out the love of Christ, engaging refugees in the inner city. Another couple on our team are strategists for the Asian community, and yet another will soon begin engaging students and young adults who make up a large portion of our city. Finally, we also have a couple who seeks to “jump start” existing churches, training and encouraging them to make disciples of non-believers who can also multiply disciples across the city.

We invite you to partner with us as we share the love of Jesus across this vast city. God is at work here, and your prayers and financial support will help the Rev. 7:9 vision come to fruition – people from every language, tribe, and tongue living in Durban, South Africa, will one day worship Christ around God’s throne!
