Hello!

We are Chase and Ashley Southard, church planting missionaries to South Africa.

Around the age of thirteen, I moved to South Africa with my father, Mark Coffey. During my time in South Africa, I started reading the Bible out of desire and not a mandate. The Lord began speaking to me through His Word. I started with Matthew, and once I got to the end of Mark, Jesus presented the great commission, “Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” While living with and observing multitudes of South African people who put their trust in ancestors and false hopes, God assured me through His scripture that I needed to preach the true gospel to them. I will be fulfilling this call in the country of South Africa as a second generation church planting missionary. We are grateful to be used by God for this reasonable service!

Ministry Strategy

We truly believe that we can reach the world in our generation through Church-Planting and man-training. Our strategy to reach the lost is to start with a local Church. As we try to grow the Church in number and its relationship to the Lord, we desire to find a man. We wish to find a man who is willing to take the step to give his life to the Lord and to ministry. When the Lord gives us this man, our goal is to train him and many more like him to start more churches. Together, we will plant more churches, evangelize the lost, disciples more believers, and train more men.

Recommendations

“God has demonstrated His manifold wisdom as He has saved, prepared, and is now sending the Southards to South Africa (Ephesians 3:10). We are confident that God will work in and through their lives on the mission field. He has begun a work in them and will continue the job as they travel to churches preaching the goodness of God and the need for the Gospel in Africa. Without hesitation, we recommend this wonderful couple to you and your church’s missions program.”

Trent Cornwell
Pastor of Vision Baptist Church

“I am honored to recommend to you Chase and Ashley Southard. This is a great couple and I am sure that they will be a blessing to you and your church. I have known Chase ever since I taught him in children’s church. He is a special young man with a heart for the lost. He is extremely passionate about proclaiming the gospel. As I have watched him grow up, I have seen him turn into a real man of character.

As the director of the Our Generation Training Center, I have seen Chase show a desire to understand and live out God’s word. As a student, Chase brought people to church. He was seeking to learn the scriptures and I believe that he would be an asset to you and your church. I pray that the Lord guides you as you make the decision in where to invest your missions funds. If you have any questions please feel free to call me at any time (770-825-3478). I ask that you would prayerfully consider Chase and Ashley Southard to be apart of your missions program. God bless you.

Director of the Our Generation Training Center

“I am honored to recommend to you Chase and Ashley Southard as missionaries to South Africa. Chase grew up in South Africa as a missionary kid with his father, Mark Coffey. Chase has a great report from his time in the training center as well as his 6 month internship in Peru. He brought many people to church and was active in many ministries. This young couple has a heart for the lost and a love for Jesus. You will be blessed hosting Chase and Ashley in your church!”
