Welcome to Jacob's Well! 

Jacob’s Well, an interdenominational ministry in South Africa, was initiated in 2003 (after the famous SACLA* conference) to support people who find themselves “between jobs" or unemployed.

* SACLA was the South African Christian Leadership Assembly, a very large gathering of Christian leaders from various spheres of influence that took place in Pretoria. They spoke and strategized about the larger challenges or "giants" that the Church and Ministries had to face in our country.


We often hear of people who cannot find a job, or have been retrenched, or have lost their jobs. So little is done for those people. We as congregations and churches can no longer look the other way. Obviously this is a very intricate problem to try and resolve, as jobs do not grow on trees. Yet, there is hope when sympathetic hands start to get organized. A group of people got inspired and came up with a plan to establish such a network: Jacob’s Well!

This is where we help you!

Each branch of Jacob's Well aims to build up a growing network of churches, organisations, businesses and individuals that are passionate and keen to be more effective in their help to the people in their communities that find themselves without any form of regular and self-sustainable income.
This support network usually consists of local Job Agencies, Businesses, Social Workers, Charities, Counsellors, Church Ministries and Volunteers (see video's in our resources section)


If you are from any country outside of South Africa, and feel motivated by our story and how God has lead us into doing what we do, we would like to challenge you to consider starting something simular in your area. It is time that the Body of Christ all over the world unite in a common effort to organize ourselves and network together for people in need. All true believers, followers of Christ and born again of the Spirit have got various gifts that make up the Body. There are roles to play for all of us. Let's take hands and make a difference for those that seek our help and support. So many opportunities to lead people to our Savior and Lord will open up to us!
