What We Do

Our Vision and Happenings


——- What we do ——-

We are Max and Cambria Melchert. Married in 2013, we have since been missionaries in South Africa. We have one son, Andrew, born March 2017.

First and foremost, we are followers of Jesus Christ and desire to make Him known within the context of our lives and work.

We work for Youth With a Mission (YWAM) in Muizenberg, outside of Cape Town. We also partner in giving leadership to A Life Together DTS.

——- Discipleship ——-

Our passion is discipleship. In other words, we love to invite people into our journey of discovery of what it means to walk with, follow, and embody Jesus in our world.

We are actively discipling people is through a six month DTS (Discipleship Training School) called A Life Together DTS. We are thrilled to work with young people as they learn about walking with Jesus and making Him known through missional work. The DTS runs every year in different locations, and our hope for A Life Together is that community would be fostered in missions, reconciliation and healing would be brought into hurting communities, and individuals would encounter the love of Christ through intentional discipleship.

Grace and Peace.
