We believe that our name Mavuno is a specific call to go and bring the harvest. Jesus, ‘the Son of Man’ came to seek and save the lost. Just as Jesus’ main task was to be an agent of reconciliation between God and a lost and rebellious humanity, our main task as a church is to bring lost people to God and to through discipleship to turn them into radical followers of Jesus Christ.
70% of our continent is under the age of 35, but few churches are set up to deliberately reach this demographic! This is a ‘sight and sound’ generation.
It’s not just important to have the right message but to communicate it in their language; using symbols, media and music that they can relate to.
Our target is not people going to other churches but those who are not in church at all. We thus use all possible means to engage them. The reason we do this is not to look cool or to fit in but as Paul says, we ‘become all things to all men in order to bring them to God’
