On Global Challenge there will be opportunities for you to serve, pray, love, share, witness and impact lives. More than this, your life and the way you look at life will change. Expect to be challenged beyond every boundary you have set for yourself and believe that God has a bigger and greater purpose for you.

Enter this journey with a longing and searching heart - a heart set on God. Invite Him to do in you this year whatever pleases Him. May God give you grace and strength for what lies ahead and may you experience joy as never before.

THERE WAS SHOUTING, THEN SHOTS WERE FIRED...

There was shouting, then shots were fired. Fear crept in and hysteria overwhelmed. Screams came from everywhere. There was no time to think. All that kicked in was a sudden urge to run- run fast and run far. Straggling across harsh bushland; pushed along south by a vast current of humanity. There was no sign of brother, sister, mother or father. And there was no way of going back to a desolate, burned down, village.

New School Opens it's Doors

on Thursday, 01 September 2016. Posted in Construction

We celebrate the goodness of God as students enter the doors of Global Leadership Academy for the first time!

We opened the doors for the first time on Monday 29 August...

When the developers of Fountains Estate, Buchner Propvest, donated 7.5 hectares of land to Global Leadership Academy in 2010, there was nothing but grasslands visible to the eye. Johann McFarlane, the husband of Marietjie McFarlane, principal of GLA, then noted that should anything ever arise from this land it would be a testimony of God’s provision, as the school had no resources whatsoever to build anything for themselves. Now, seven years later, and with many testimonies of God’s provision through people volunteering expertise - man hours and services - the new school building has opened its doors for the first time on Monday 29 August.

The construction of the school started on 25 April 2013, after the team clearly heard the Lord say, “Start with the foundations!” Since then, a small team of 6-8 builders worked through wind and rain to complete the bulk brickwork. Only the past 6 months has there been an escalation in activity on site as more and more work had to be done to complete construction. There are testimonies of many weeks when there was literally no money to pay wages, only to receive donations at the school on the very morning payments needed to be made. Similarly, we received enthusiastic support from local service providers, and wish to thank every company who helped us make the dream of a quality learning environment for students of Kouga a reality.

Monday was the “soft opening” of the school, and we are planning the grand opening over the weekend of 25-27 November when we intend to open the school in true GLA style.

For now, we are enjoying the blessings of fresh air, sunshine and barista-quality cappuccinos from our very own café during break times…
