A big thank you to everyone who supported our pre-release screenings of the MOSLEY movie!

We were honoured to host two exclusive pre-release screenings of Huhu Studios’ ‘MOSLEY’ movie in Manukau and Albany!

Trevor Yaxley (Executive Producer & CEO of Huhu Studios) introduced MOSLEY at  EVENT Manukau, and Mark & JoEllen Bowen (Compositing, Shots & Lighting Leads) gave the introduction at EVENT Albany.

All funds raised will go towards MotiVate’s ministry partners in Tonga (Tonga Christian Radio) and the Philippines (church planting and remote community development).

Starring Rhys Darby, Lucy Lawless, Temuera Morrison and John Rhys-Davies, MOSLEY was released nationally today (10 October) and we’re sure Trevor and his team at Huhu studios would love for you to see it!

Upcoming Trips
We’re planning our ‘Explore’ team trips for 2020 and beyond, with opportunities for you to raise a team from your church, or to apply individually to join one of our teams.

Our Mission

Equipping and empowering the church worldwide to make disciples and transform nations


Where is God calling you?
We mobilise ordinary people, just like you, in impactful ministry opportunities and for varying lengths of cross-cultural service—including short-term trips, internships and full-time missionary placement.

Christian Education

We partner with local churches around the world to develop healthy Christian education programs.
We invest in and empower Christian schools to form active disciples of Jesus Christ, equipped to impact society through their spiritual discernment, moral courage, and academic excellence.

Bible Training

One of our greatest joys is to equip pastors and Christian leaders with the knowledge and skills they need to be effective disciple makers.
Well-trained, visionary leaders are key to a healthy and growing church.

Health & Community Development

We seek not only to see individuals become followers of Jesus but also to see families lifted out of cycles of poverty and disease.
Our strategy includes contextualised community health training, medical centres, vocational training, re-nutrition centres and clean water initiatives.

Church Planting

We are committed to spreading the Gospel in some of the most remote parts of the world—where the Church has yet to reach.
We seek to foster and support the advancement of church planting movements around the world.

Disaster Relief

Although we’re not primarily a relief organisation, we will raise funds for relief assistance through our co-workers and ministry partners, where they are already on the ground and able to distribute supplies
