The Rose of Sharon Ministries is an evangelical, Christian ministry, that ministers in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, through a ministry of evangelism and works of mercy. Ministry takes place throughout South Africa
The Rose of Sharon will pursue its aims and objectives in any province that might be identified in the future. The ministry team is comprised of the director/treasurer Gavin Campbell and his wife, Desiree, both in full-time ministry: they are assisted by Christian volunteers from within South Africa and abroad, all of whom are born again (converted) believers. The main thrust of the ministry in terms of its evangelistic and missions endeavours is directed at the poor. Special attention is given to needy young people and children and very poor or destitute old people and certain churches in poor communities.
The Rose Of Sharon Ministries responds in obedience to God's word to play out its part in the Lord’s great commission of Matthew 28:19-20 and to reach out in a demonstration of the love of Jesus in practical, hands on ways. Those reached are the ones whom the bible identifies as being in need and calls on Christians in such scriptures as James 2:14-17 and Mattew 25:35-40, to reach out to. Rose Of Sharon is constituted as an evangelical, inter - denominational, Christian ministry.
The vision and mission statement along with the structures mentioned below attempt to articulate our understanding of God's calling on the ministry. We acknowledge the many ways in which God directs His work: through His Word, the Holy Bible, quickened to our hearts and understanding by the Holy Spirit; through prayer and the fellowship of Christian believers and through Godly order, discipline and structures. We honour what God has done through the ministry over the past twenty six years and seek diligently to continue to be guided according to His will and purposes, as recorded in his word, the Holy Bible.
Rose of Sharon’s main focus is the Great Commission of the Lord Jesus Christ to baptise, disciple and teach others, therefore we go out and preach his glorious gospel of salvation among the people, baptising them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and teaching them all that they should obey. Matt 28:19-20. Furthermore, we regard it our responsibility, in terms of James 2:14-17 to demonstrate the love of Jesus in practical, hands-on ways to people whom we might encounter in the course of evangelistic outreaches, with exceptional needs, irrespective of where in the country they are domiciled. These are people whom God may from time to time direct us to minister to through evangelism and discipleship, or by providing practical support and resources:
a) To assist them to overcome immediate needs.
b) To support and encourage them to pursue a committed, Christian lifestyle.
c) To provide Spiritual leadership.
d) To provide Bibles, books, tracts, teaching material, audio and video CD’s and DvD’s for the purpose of developing spiritual growth.
While - motivating associate Christian leaders to evangelise, disciple and serve along with us.
