To raise up young emerging leaders who can greatly impact the nation of South Africa and the nations of the world.
That’s a lofty vision. But after living here for more than a month, I can tell you that’s exactly what is happening at World Changers Academy!
Like any great vision, this one is being realized through the faithful work of humble people relying on a mighty God. The staff is made up almost entirely of people who have gone through the program themselves.
They work hard because they believe in the message World Changers is bringing to communities all over this province. Because they’ve experienced transformation themselves, their words carry great weight when they speak among their peers.
And this small staff is just a fraction of a percentage of the lives that have been reached and transformed by World Changers Academy. Other graduates of the program have gone on to become local business and government leaders, founders of nonprofit organizations, teachers, social workers and a hundred other things.
World Changers is constantly churning out new leaders. In an area that has lost a heartbreaking number of bright young lives to AIDS, this is incredibly good news.
I have great hope for the future of Kwazulu-Natal because I have lived among some of the men and women who will lead this province forward. Talk about impacting a nation.
It all starts here in a few modest buildings hidden on a hillside. Take a deeper look at how World Changers is raising up young leaders who are impacting the world!
- Pray for the staff of World Changers Academy! Pray for provision for their needs, safety in their travels and encouragement in their work.
- World Changers hopes to add additional lodging and classroom space on campus to accommodate more students. A donation to Loving South Africa could help make this dream a reality.
