Education Overview

In a surprising way we found ourselves engaged in education.  As we walk this creative journey led by God’s favour, we are convinced more than ever that the heart of the Father is in this.  The prophetic words from respected mentors over the school have been profound.   The challenges in front of us are great; the rewards are even greater.  

We hear the words of Nelson Mandela: 

“Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world.”

    As a team member of Work Your Way I got the opportunity to discover God in a whole new way. My life has been transformed! From growing up in a township, I have been discipled and trained and I am now running a Screen printing shop.

  • Anthony Jacobs
     
     
    I did not give up a family business to make a statement. I did it because of a sense of destiny I could not ignore. I want my life to be meaningful in a different Kingdom. From our first pioneering journey until now, I fully believe in who we are and who we will become.

    Global Challenge has stirred up a passion in me to aim for the impossible. In the year I did Explore Africa, I was able to be in Niger and respond by raising R120 000.00 for a hunger relief program. It stretched my leadership and I will never be the same again..

  • Jacobus Scott
     
     
    After my two years of travel, the invitation to come and design a school sounded at first way over my head. Today, as we see the dream realizing before our eyes, I can look back to the most beautiful years of my life. I have learned to become a person of faith.

    It is rare to have a creative space to constantly initiate new things!  For us, the dream of a coffee shop was only possible because of people cheering us on and believing in the difference we could make.

    What an immense privilege to be a part of God’s plan for generations of children to come. It has been one of the most exciting periods of my life to see young people develop and grow with committed and dedicated teachers that love them.

    Global Challenge becomes part of you just as you become part of Global Challenge. The deep friendships, the common love and dedication to Jesus and the innovative space available to live out God’s calling has changed me.

    Global gave me the freedom to live out my calling of serving society by creating spiritual communities!

  • Paul and Clara
     
     
    Our lives are committed to God and the Global Challenge community as a lifestyle. I traded a lecture position to be a teacher at the Global Leadership Academy, because the passion of influencing young people in creative ways drives me. My wife, Clara leads the training of the Expeditions and was part of the birth of this movement.

    We never lacked anything!  Even at times when I compared my global salary to what I earned earlier, the maths would not work out and we stand in awe of the ability of God to provide. To live in a sacrificial, loving community is rare and special. What a privilege!
