Location :: South Africa
Located just outside the historic village of Stellenbosch in the Western Cape of South Africa, our community of full-time staff, residents, interns, partners, and friends are raising up leaders, serving the local church, and learning within community. Much of this takes place at EM's Community House and Retreat Center. It is a warm, spacious, peaceful, and inviting place. There EM interns, mentors, and visiting lecturers live, worship, study, and do life together. It is an integral part of our vision in South Africa. At East Mountain, we believe that some of the best learning happens around the kitchen table over coffee.
Stellenbosch is a small university town located approximately 50 kilometers from Cape Town. It is the second oldest European settlement in South Africa, founded in 1679 by Simon van der Stel. Stellenbosch is seated in the heart of the Cape Winelands where residents live in the shadow of jagged mountain peaks and rows of grape vines that surround the quaint historic village and outlying neighborhoods.
East Mountain works all over the greater Cape Town and Port Elizabeth areas, focusing much of our energy on leaders in the economically and socially challenged townships where God is moving in a mighty way.
Staff :: Cape Town
At our Cape Town location, we currently have nine families who live in community and serve the needs of East Moutain full-time.
From pastors to business men, former members of the military to career missionaries, to engineers and young moms, God uses each person to breathe life and give hope through East Mountain's leadership programs.
