GoMaD Gap Year is a discipleship gap year programme for six young men who wish to understand their generation better and reach their generation for Christ. Prepare to be challenged in all areas of life, enjoying many and new experiences, adventure, and spending two months on an overlanding mission to Namibia, Zambia, and Botswana.
The gap year starts on the 1st of February and runs to the end of November every year. Six young men, aged 18 and older, will be discipled in a Socratic process of experiential learning, dialogue, apprenticeship, and practice. You will learn in order to teach and grow, in order to take others with you, mature as a man and better understand your design and role as a man in God’s Kingdom. You will learn to ransack the scriptures as the only basis for faith and practice. You will learn to live and see the Lord in every aspect of living. You will learn about business and entrepreneurship; you will learn to lead and have influence; and you will learn how to use social media for ministry. You will be well prepared to use your whole experience as a roadmap to disciple others when you go back into the marketplace of life, be it university or the world of work. The application process is on the GoMaD website.

Gap Year Programme: This one-year course enables the student to work through essential issues of their faith, offering an evangelical biblical standpoint which encourages them to think critically and engage meaningfully with the world around them. Here the student finds no ivory tower of theory or theology, just gritty, practical and challenging times of study, service, prayer and fellowship. Selected classes are taken with the 1st year BTh students and there is an additional practical module. This is not an accredited programme but it is invaluable for students who seek direction and a deeper commitment in their walk with Christ. The Gap Year students and the BTh students are treated as one group on campus. Our goal is to help each student to develop a Judaeo-Christian world- and life-view. We strive to help each student to think creatively and critically about the various issues they will face in their context of ministry and to do so in a way that is biblical and which preserves the bonds of peace and fellowship in our non-denominational, multi-cultural and international Christian community on campus.
