Support the Scouverts
Fund # 4220-00
Marco and Laura are sent out to South Africa by Christ Fellowship of Kansas City. After growing up as a nominal Roman Catholic, Marco was exposed to the gospel and other biblical truth in his early 20’s through a co-worker’s personal evangelism. Subsequently he came to trust in the Lord Jesus and went on to complete M.Div studies at The Master’s Seminary. He began ministry in South Africa in the Fall of 2016 and has spent a total of four and a half years there, first as a Pastoral Assistant with a partial focus on local evangelism and now as a church planter and strengthener.
The Scouverts have two children: Abigail (3 yrs) and Matthew (8 mos). They live and minister in Johannesburg. Their desire, as the Lord wills, is for Marco to plant new churches and set biblical order to already existing churches through evangelism, teaching, and mentoring and equipping church leaders. Marco’s primary focus is helping a national pastor establish a church plant in an informal settlement (Ruimsig).
This past year has involved a lot of itinerant teaching - communicating messages at different local church meetings. In this upcoming year Marco hopes to begin an evangelistic work in a nearby township (Munsieville), have biblical influence within a denomination for Malawian nationals in the country (CCAP), and see what may develop from evangelistic efforts in their neighborhood. Laura works hard in their home to help Marco, train up their children, and delights to provide a space where lots of meaningful interactions and meetings can happen between believers and unbelievers.
