South Africa Ministry

There are many ways you can become involved in our South Africa Ministry.  You can sponsor a child or teacher through our Sponsorship Program, provide Wish List Items which assist in resourcing our three schools, or travel on one of our Annual Mission Trips. If you are interested in becoming involved please contact Rev. David Ssebulime  at  and read more information below on Partners and Sponsorship Program. 

Become A Sponsor

In 2007, Brentwood UMC funded the construction of a church building in the Tumbleweed community of South Africa.  This initial relationship grew into a ministry that now connects sponsors to children and teachers in three different South African schools.  At each of our partner schools, children receive a God-centered educational foundation, as well as emotional and spiritual intervention and care.  If you are interested in building a relationship with a student at one of our partner schools, please email Rev. David Ssebulime  at  for more information on how to become a sponsor!

Brentwood Society Church and Preschool

Brentwood UMC funded the construction of a church building for the  Tumbleweed community in South Africa in 2007.  Named the Brentwood Society Church, this facility provides a place to worship God, as well as houses a preschool and fosters economic opportunities for a community which struggles with extreme poverty, illness, and lack of educational opportunities.

Angels' Care Centre

Angels' Care was established by concerned residents in the Umngeni Municipal area to address the needs of desperately poor children from the local informal settlements who have experienced emotional and physical trauma.  The aim of the organization is to assist children through the provision of pre-school education, aftercare facilities, and feeding and health care programs.  Through support, Angels' Care has been able to obtain their own facilities consisting of a caretakers cottage, medical and diagnostic equipment, and three new classrooms.

Thembelihle Pre-Primary and Primary School

Thembelihle is a private school that was started by Howick Methodist Church in Howick, South Africa.  In 2008, a building was purchased to expand the preschool into a full pre-primary and primary school servicing students through seventh grade.  Currently, the school is thriving with an expansion project to increase the number of children in the community they are able to educate.
