Welcome to Jackson’s Ridge

Jackson’s Ridge is a one of a kind organisation dedicated exclusively to changing children’s lives. Jackson’s Ridge is a non profit organisation that was established by the Assemblies of God World Missions, USA in partnership with the International Assemblies of God of South Africa. JR (as the locals call it) is located just outside Magaliesburg in the Northwest province of South Africa.

JR Changes Children’s Lives through three exciting ministry programs:

Children’s Ministry Training Centre

Jackson’s Ridge is first and foremost a Children’s Ministry Training Centre for pastors,  adult leaders, children’s workers, teachers and community workers who want to impact the lives of all children in their communities.

We offer Saturday workshops as well as full weekends and some 5-day specialised training courses that will equip you to meet the needs of the children in your community. We run 4 levels of training for children’s workers: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced and Speciality.

Jackson’s Ridge is a Children’s Camping facility specializing in a wide range of camps for children from church groups, community organizations, group homes, schools, and disadvantaged communities.

Jackson’s Ridge also serves as the continental office for Royal Family Kids’ Camps, a program designed especially for children from hard places who have been physically, emotionally and sexually abused and/or neglected.
