BACKGROUND

Over the last twenty years coming alongside and working with pastors in rural areas, the need for training has just become overwhelming. I have come across many young men, passionate for God and the extension of His Kingdom. Many of these young people grew up fatherless, which results in no skill development at all. The idea of a training center where they could be trained for ministry and at the same time be taught social skills and be equipped to be able to be self-sustaining was birthed about eight years ago. The biggest obstacle for me has always been the right facility to do this in, thus it’s taken many years to come to fruition. God in His mercy and perfect timing has now provided us with the most amazing turnkey facility, which can accommodate 36 students. Eighteen bedrooms, a two-bedroom unit for a housefather and mother, lecture hall, dining hall, huge kitchen, lounge area, workshop, storerooms, strong borehole and farmland, all behind an electric fence. I believe God handed us the keys and said “GO FOR IT”.
