2017 BGMC Project

Jackson’s Ridge Children’s Ministry Training Center
Magaliesburg, South Africa

Jackson’s Ridge is a one of a kind organization dedicated exclusively to changing children’s lives. Jackson’s Ridge is a non profit organization that was established by the Assemblies of God World Missions, USA in partnership with the International Assemblies of God of South Africa. JR (as the locals call it) is located just outside Magaliesburg in the Northwest province of South Africa.

JR Changes Children’s Lives through three exciting ministry programs:

  • First, Jackson’s Ridge is a Children’s Ministry Training Centre for adult leaders, children’s workers, teachers and community workers who want to impact the lives of all children in their communities.
  • Second, Jackson’s Ridge is a Children’s Camping facility specializing in camps for all kinds of children from church groups, community organizations and disadvantaged communities. Jackson’s Ridge also serves as the continental office for Royal Family Kids Camps, a program designed especially for hurting children who have been physically, emotionally and sexually abused and neglected.
  • Third, Jackson’s Ridge is a Resource Centre, providing the largest array of children’s ministry materials and supplies in Africa.

The Penndel CE Department has chosen Jackson’s Ridge as our 2017 BGMC Project. Our Breakaway & Camp offerings will specifically go to support this great work – please come prepared to those events to be a blessing to Jackson’s Ridge! (Feel free to use the video below to promo this project in your church or kids’ ministry!)
