Hi! My name is Maryke Koen and I am a full time missionary with the Catalyst Movement.

I recently did my DTS with YWAM Fire & Fragrance in Potchefstroom South Africa after I finished my degree in Sport Science.  After doing my DTS the Lord came so gently and showed me that I should go into full time ministry. My heart burns for Gen Z and to see the next generation saved wholeheartedly and running after Jesus.

We cannot find a group of teenagers that gathers on a weekly basis with more than 500 members in South Africa. Thus, the natural conclusion is that churches all around SA are not effectively reaching the next generation. In our group of churches, we have 564 youth in 35 churches scattered across SA. In our town of Paarl, we have 40,000 youth (high school students), but no more than 500 are engaged in active youth groups. Statistics indicate that they tend to drift away from their faith and the church during their teenage years. Our goal as catalysts is to go into schools, evangelise and share the gospel and start building relationships within schools.

Would you prayerfully consider in partnering with me in prayer and financially to see the next generation of South Africa getting saved?

Thanks! :)
