“If africa is to be evangelized, it must be done by the african.”

Otto keller, 1926


The expansion of the church in most of the world has led to a need for discipled, Spirit-filled, and equipped leaders to serve the church.

Missions, Exposure and Training (MET) – Pretoria, South Africa

MET was established in 1996 in Pretoria, South Africa, with the sole purpose of training African pastors for cross-cultural mission work. It was started by Don and Kathy Barron.

Global workers Gerald and Pat Golbeck served as Directors from 2002 – 2014. In that time, they began to offer training courses in French, trained over 700 pastors in cross-cultural mission work, and initiated mission conferences known as Mission Fest in Congo, Cameroon, Zambia, and South Africa.

Today, Pierre and Marielle Paradis serve as the program directors. Africa has become a mission-sending continent, sending missionaries within their own boundaries, across the continent, and to the uttermost parts of the world, and the Paradis are honoured to be part of the story. They receive students from English, French and Portuguese countries within Africa.


GlobalEd exists to make ready for service leaders who will make disciples everywhere.

With a dynamic team of Canadian global workers the focus of our engagement is with 50 international institutions and ministry training centres. - Dr. Kirk Kauffeldt
