Welcome to Preferred Future!
Preferred Future is the Missional Arm of the Assemblies of God group, South Africa. It is the merger of 2 organisations – Over the Wall (OTW) and World Wide Missions (WWM). WWM was formed in 1996. This was the AOG group’s missions arm, giving support to our local churches missionary and church planting work. Over the Wall was formed in 2003. This was primarily the AOG group’s Social Justice arm, giving support to our local churches justice work. OTW also served as a way of inviting international sponsors to partner with both our regional missionary work as well as our national project work.
Preferred Future exists to serve both functions – giving support to our regional pastors and staff teams and their work as well as our local justice work. In addition to that we advocate for justice and missions and continually find ways to inspire our churches to be influential in this field. In order to do this effectively, Preferred Future has identified that the group needs to focus on 2 main areas with regards to being missional- Planting churches of influence, in high and low income areas and encouraging development through education.
We encourage our local church partners to get involved in the communities they find themselves in by means of relief and civic support.
