Join Blessman Ministries and Spread God’s Love

“Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms.” - 1 Peter 4:10

Formed in August 2001 by Dr. Jim and Beth Blessman, Blessman Ministries is a non-profit organization that aims to spread the Good Word to the people of Africa through Christian mission trips. In turn, we wish to remind others that the Father loves unconditionally and that He has a beautiful plan for each one of us.

We firmly believe that God has given every one of us amazing talents, and that serving others by using our talents is the greatest form of love and service we can give the Lord. From donations and prayer to volunteering in our U.S. headquarters and going on short term missions to South Africa, there are many ways our kind-hearted volunteers can help us lay the foundation for a better and brighter tomorrow. Through our programs, volunteers are able to fulfill the goals of evangelism and discipleship.

At the end of the day, we do what we do not for ourselves, but for the sake of our brothers and sisters in South Africa and, ultimately, for our loving and merciful God. Get in touch today to volunteer for any of our programs or to inquire about being sent on a mission trip to Africa.

Actions Speak Louder than Words

We do more than simply spread the Word of God; we make it a point to live out His teachings in practice in every facet of our lives. Blessman Ministries conducts numerous sustainable outreach programs during short term mission trips to Africa to aid those in need. Some of these outreach programs include:

  • Optical Outreaches
  • Shoe Outreaches
  • Days for Girls Distribution and Outreaches
  • Nutritional Feeding Programs
  • Housing Programs
  • Medical Missions
  • Teacher Training
  • Job Creation

Our programs are designed to provide the love and support our brothers and sisters in South Africa need to help them build a sustainable existence. It is our hope that this provides the opportunity they need to become independent and live their lives the way God intended them to: full of love, happiness, and the determination to spread good in the world.

Volunteers for Africa mission trips also help out with the activities organized by the local Church. Training and support programs headed by leaders of the South African Church aim to provide both volunteers and locals a chance to strengthen their faith and grow in the Spirit.
