About Us


As 2018 drew to a close, Challenge Ministries Swaziland began to build their strategic plan for the next five-year term. Before long, it was evident that there was a huge need to expand the CMS network around the globe. With child care expenses mounting, and the pressures of a constrained economy in Eswatini, the team on the ground knew that the only hope for sustainable growth was to strengthen foreign relations.

Thus, CMS partnered with Partners In Action to establish an office within the United States. The office has been called Challenge Ministries Global (CMG), and has been given the challenge of empowering the vision, mission, and values of CMS.

The CMG team fundraises, sends teams, and develops new strategies in so that CMS can keep operate most effectively, helping those in need.

Our Partnership

Meet Challenge Ministries Swaziland (CMS):

Challenge Ministries Swaziland is a not for profit section 21 charity based in Swaziland; a small, beautiful country which is landlocked between South Africa and Mozambique. Swaziland has one of the highest HIV/AIDS rates in the world, which has resulted in many orphaned or vulnerable children living on the streets without any hope for the future.

CMS has a vision to make a difference in Swaziland for many generations through the care of orphaned and vulnerable children, development of rural communities, education, rehabilitation programs, rural healthcare, sustainability projects and teaching godly leadership.

Meet The Director of Operations

Joshua Ward is the founder and director of operations of Challenge Ministries Global.

Joshua is the son of Kevin and Helen Ward, the founders of Challenge Ministries Swaziland and co-founders of Bulembu Ministries Swaziland. He grew up in Eswatini (formerly Swaziland), and has had the privilege of being a part of every phase of the ministries’ growth.

In 2015 Joshua moved to the USA to attend university, where he met his wife, Caroline. Joshua and Caroline now live in Knoxville, Tennessee, and lead Challenge Ministries Global in its mission to serve Challenge Ministries Swaziland and Bulembu Ministries Swaziland. Caroline is a full-time worship leader, and the two of them passionately serve the local and global community through missions, discipleship and care.

As a Swazi citizen, living in the USA, Joshua believes that he has been uniquely positioned to serve Eswatini in the vision of Kingdom Transformation. This is what led him to give up his job in consulting and start the Challenge Ministries Global office. He now travels around the States on a mission to share the stories of life transformation in Eswatini and invite others to participate in bringing hope to a nation in need.
