Who Are We?

“In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” Acts 20:35 (ESV)

1. How long has KCOT (Kind Christian Outreach Trust) been operating?

In 2010 the original trustees gathered and asked how and in what manner they can uplift the community of Southern KwaZulu Natal where only ± 26% of the approximate one million people in this area are employed.

2. The problem 

There is a desperate need for more knowledge from the Word of God in previously disadvantaged communities in South Africa. People face serious challenges in their communities like the danger of false teachings and misleading practices, the lack of spiritual guidance, violence, rape, burglaries, and exploitation of the vulnerable.
Church leaders yearn to be better equipped so that they can confidently take the lead in their communities and exert greater influence to the benefit of all.

Today millions of untrained pastors serve in churches around the world. This is because formal theological training is neither affordable nor accessible to the majority of the world’s untrained pastors.

3. Driven by our passion and vision, KCOT empowers church leaders through:

  • Providing in-depth Bible training to pastors, lay preachers, evangelists, and other church members, old and young, men and women in previously disadvantaged communities.
  • Helping to fulfill the deep need for proper Biblical knowledge that can stimulate growth in faith, character, and skills.
  • Helping to uplift communities in need with the knowledge, values, and love of God.
  • Providing affordable, quality studies for people longing for it.
  • Bringing the opportunity for training to the doorstep of students through personal contact classes.
  • Giving continued support to Alumni in their work in their communities. Our unswerving faith and commitment will change and improve lives.
