Polokwane, South Africa

We serve at Christ Seminary and a local church in Polokwane, South Africa. David is the Academic Dean and teaches at the seminary, and also pastors and shepherds in a local church. The Lord is growing the seminary, and the student body will soon be comprised of over 60 men representing 20% of the continent of Africa. We have students from South Africa, Zimbabwe, Republic of Congo, Malawi, Angola, Senegal, Guinea, and Uganda. There is a drought of God's Word in Africa (Amos 8:11–12), but now we are seeing men who are equipped in expository preaching step out and change lives. We are also active in leading a home Bible study, and David preaches about twice monthly at our local church. Carol teaches the women and children. Our children are all involved in the youth ministry.


  • Directing the academic needs of the seminary
  • Equipping local pastors
  • Shepherding the local church members
  • Teaching and preaching in various churches as well as our local church
  • To disciple and equip an African expositor and shepherd to lead our local church.

Current Ministry:

  • Pray for us as we continue to teach the Truth even though it opposes the traditions of the village.
  • Pray that Dave will continue to passionately implore the students to preach the Word.
  • Pray for stamina in juggling the seminary lecturing, preaching, men's and women's Bible studies, trips to villages, and still investing in precious family time.
  • Praise God for the changes that we have seen in many of the students after they have been exposed to the Truth.
  • Praise God for His physical and financial provision for us.
