Sharing of Ministries Abroad

connecting the church globally

"It is not what a man does that determines whether his work is sacred or secular, it is why he does it."
- A.W. Tozer

SOMA SA is a servant ministry seeking in the power of the Holy Spirit to empower the Body of Christ to preach the Kingdom of God and minister in the power of the Spirit. The thrust of the ministry is to both leaders and members of the local church. The ministry is carried out by short-term mission teams that go to a diocese usually at the invitation of the Bishop.

Our Core Values

Jesus Christ is the Lord, Redeemer and Saviour of the world. 

The Bible is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice.

Intercessory prayer is essential for releasing God’s power.

Baptism in the Holy Spirit renews, heals and transforms lives and churches. The Holy Spirit enables repentance and growth in holiness. 

Renewal leads to reconciliation, care and unity in the body. Renewal empowers the Church for evangelism and mission. Renewal seeks the transformation of communities as a sign of the coming Kingdom of God.

Giving and receiving across cultures is part of God’s precious resource in renewal and mission.   

Effective ministry flows from a servant heart and through loving relationships.

If you would like to become a SOMA supporter, the first thing we need are your prayers. Team members on mission are doing God’s work, the team face spiritual opposition in the areas they visit. For every mission that goes out, SOMA need supporters ‘back home’ to continue praying for protection.
