South Africa

Mission Trip SummerEmerging from the vision of a man and a woman who cared deeply about the orphans of South Africa, the African Havens was born. This unique set of children’s homes offers more than a mere feeding program, or providing shelter. Each Haven offers a Christian home environment for infants and children who are abandoned, neglected, or orphaned.

Additionally, through three churches in and around the city of Johannesburg, we aid in supporting ministries of care and compassion.


Every two years, a mission team from First Presbyterian Church travels to South Africa to work in the Havens, the churches, and in some of the city’s most blighted areas, bringing the love of Jesus Christ. Taking food, clothing and other supplies, our team members also go to hospitals and community centers, helping to share the good news of God’s loving grace. We invite you to join with us as we experience the love and hospitality of our South African brothers and sisters.
