Our Team & Leadership

Braam Botha

Senior Pastor

Through 23 years of ministry I flourished initiating new projects and clarifying direction with enthusiasm and energy. I believe in meeting challenges proactively, while providing insight and imagination to tasks and projects to support the vision of the church. Exhibiting resourcefulness through strategies and structures is a critical aspect of how I serve the church and her mission.

I serve the community I live in best, by using models and logical systems to meet their needs. Speaking out for change in our communities is a responsibility I take seriously while organising, operating, and assuming the risk for new ideas and approaches is seen as part of that.

Challenging and encouraging personal and/or organisational achievement is a set value in my functioning. Liaison to other service groups, especially those with a novel or unusual focus is critical in creating a wholistic ministry that sees its community as its mission field.
