Who we are
We are a transformational community that exists to disciple Christian leaders for global missional service.
A transformational community that values
We create community spaces where leaders grow - spiritually, biblically, and practically.
We partner with churches, schools and Christian organizations to disciple leaders and to build the Kingdom
East Mountain creates spaces in which Christian leaders can grow in character, competence, and connection with God, in community and partnership with fellow believers.
We have inspiring stories from staff, residents and partners
The 10 month residency and 5 week Summit internships invite participants to experience deep cross-cultural community, to study theology and formation, and to partner with local NGOs and churches to gain practical ministry experience.
Residency is a ten month transformational experience of shared life, study, spiritual formation, and service in the East Mountain Community.
Using a biblically sound, culturally sensitive, and relationally driven approach, EM Residency aims to disciple whole-hearted servant leaders who embody the gospel wherever they go. We focus on theology (head), identity (heart), and mission (hands) in a transformational, cross-cultural Christian community.
Summit is a 5 week exploratory internship for young adults.
It aims to facilitate the growth of young people in their faith as they live and learn with other believers from across the globe.
Components include Bible classes, spiritual formation sessions, one-on-one mentorship, and ministry exploration.
Our blog on all things East Mountain South Africa
The Youth Outreach ministry is a new partnership this year for East Mountain. It is an organization that serves children that come from unstable homes or environments. There are currently about twenty children staying there from ages 5 – 18. Some of them have parents back at home who are addicted to substances, while others were sent there by their parents to avoid the gang infestations in their communities. There are also children that come just during the day as day visitors in order to receive some food and tutoring help.
If you drive down the R310 towards the N2 towards Cape Town on almost any given day, you will see a small cluster of women sitting on the side of the road in a bush area. With two to seven or eight of them gathered on most days, they come to this area to work as prostitutes on the side of the road.
In honor of women’s month in August, we would like to put the spotlight on three ministries that East Mountain partners with that focus entirely on women and the unique challenges and joys that they face.
