Tents are made available to teams of labourers that form part of a satellite in a geographical area. A satellite is a group of like-minded Christian churches of any denomination that take responsibility for the harvest in their own Judea-area.
Judea Harvest now has 240 satellites across 17 Southern African nations and has implemented 1,400 tents in these satellites. There are approximately 6,500 churches involved in these satellites. More than 6000 crusades have been conducted in this tent network and approximately 3,500 new churches have been planted. Our dream is all about winning souls as we obey His command to do so.
Over the past six years the Judea Harvest concept has proven that it has the potential to make a major impact on the continent of Africa, to uplift, empower and transform our nations.
The strategic process of Judea Harvest enables the satellites to implement a holistic ministry in order to complete the great commission in its own area. Tents are an extremely cost effective and a mobile way in Africa to penetrate the previously disadvantaged.
The strategic process starts with prayer mobilization, followed by evangelism training. A comprehensive discipleship program is then implemented to teach and disciple all new believers. A Church Planting strategy is implemented to work towards saturation church planting. A comprehensive community development plan is implemented in every satellite, addressing needs such as:
EFFECTIVE SYSTEM IN PLACE
A highly effective coordination system is implemented by the Judea Harvest Team. Regional Coordinators as well as Satellite Coordinators are being empowered to strategically coordinate the implementation of the vision.
It is our firm conviction that the church is a major role-player in creating the right climate for sustainable peace, stability and development in Southern Africa.
According to Patrick Johnstone in Operation World, the 11 countries of Southern Africa had a total population of 118 million people in the year 2000, and currently stand at 137 million. The economy of Africa has stagnated for the last 40 years and therefore the people of Africa remained behind their global counterparts in the development race of this world.
Africa is plagued by many problems like HIV/AIDS, poverty, corruption even in governments, civil wars, natural disasters such as droughts and floods, political instability and diseases, some of which are malaria and cholera.
THE CHURCH HAS THE ANSWER
We believe that the church has the answer for many of Africa's problems. Although 48% of all African people profess to be Christian, in reality most are just nominal Christians. The traditional African religion with some of its demonic activities still has a major influence on the African people. Churches and individual Christians should take ownership for what is happening in their respective communities. Evangelism and discipleship will act as a catalyst against crime and sin in the community.
Our challenge is to connect the existing resources and efforts within the communities with other local and national role players in a partnership to address the needs on ground level. The contribution of each role player may range from funding, training, socio-economic upliftment, job creation and physical structures.
Judea Harvest has already successfully facilitated partnerships with International Organizations such as Walk Thru the Bible (Dr Bruce Wilkinson), Dawn Ministries, Every Home for Christ (Cor Reyneke), and Harvest Evangelism (Ed Silvoso).
Judea Harvest is a non-profit organization with its Head Office based in Pretoria, South Africa, and operates from rented offices. The entity functions in faith and solely depends on gifts and donations. The phenomenal results achieved in the past three years, can only be accredited to the unmerited favour of GOD.
