Potchefstroom Building Fundraiser
Shofar Potchefstroom is a vibrant family of believers settled in the heart of North West University. Our services, held each Sunday at 9 Gerrit Dekker Street, are marked by vibrant praise & worship, practical Bible teaching and heart-warming fellowship. Small groups, which meet all across the central and surrounding Potchefstroom area during the week, are the heartbeat of our ministry and provide a safe environment where each member can actively engage with, and grow in their faith within the context of authentic relationships.
Our ministries include the following:
This ministry includes two services on a Sunday in Afrikaans and English of about 400 students.
Our youth team is currently serving in most of the High Schools in Potchefstroom presenting Bible periods, preaching the Gospel in breaks and serving hostels in schools. We are praying to plant a youth service in the next 3 months.
We have a full-time appointed worship leader training and discipling members in worship ministry. This ministry is involved in almost all of the ministries, making it possible for everyone to enter the presence of God in all areas of ministry.
This ministry is growing rapidly on a Tuesday morning with close to 100 people attending. This ministry is growing in worship with the Word and other methods to enter into the throne room of God.
Our family ministry includes the Sunday family service that focuses on families and raising up mature followers of Jesus to see His Kingdom come in Potchefstroom in our families and businesses.
We started with the new Bible School 1 in 2021 and have almost 50 people enrolled and actively participating. We will be starting with Bible School 2 in 2022 and Bible School 3 in 2023. We see the fruit and utilise this to equip believers to grow in becoming giants in the faith.
All these ministries are possible having the wonderful Church grounds and buildings. We are currently renting out the church hall to Kukua and Kukua Coworks that forms part of our vision of making the grounds open to serve everyone in Potchefstroom.
Our ministry predominantly consists of students as we are growing our family ministry. Students also study on average for 3 years and then move away. We are growing in our ministry of mature believers who raise their hands to serve, but the church building remains a big expense.
We are grateful to Shofar Pretoria and Shofar Secunda for assisting us financially in the past 4 years. In prayer and seeking God, He revealed to us, that we should partner with individuals who experience this ministry first hand. We would love to see this ministry flourish and stand on its own feet. We want to partner with 100 people who commit to a debit order of R500 per month. This will enable us to pay the shortfall on the bond from the congregation.
Please consider this in prayer and obedience to God. If you have any questions on the financials of the church, you are welcome to contact Pastor Christo Louw at firstname.lastname@example.org.
