Tell us a little about yourself: I was born in Limpopo Province in a small village called Sesalong gaMaleboho, I completed my diploma in chemical engineering in 2008 at University Of Johannesburg. I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savoir in 1998. I only started serving this year.

How did you know for sure that you are called to serve within your local Church?
I have always been passionate about inspiring and motivating other people. I knew that the only way for me will be through serving in a local church.

What is the most spiritually renewing aspect of serving and what keeps you going?
I renew my mind everyday with the Word to be spiritually relevant. Seeing the joy that a person has when they receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour is worth it. And knowing that I am part of something bigger than me keeps me going. It also helps me to grow and see God on a different levels and dimensions.

How important is prayer and studying the Word for a woman serving within the Church?
The word teaches and gives us the inside as to who God says I am and for me to be able to pray His perfect will. Prayer keeps me focused on who God is, and on His unending love.


Why do you think it is important for Christian women to serve within their local Church?
“For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function” (Romans 12:4 NKJ). They are needed for the full function of the body.

How do you see yourself in the context of the larger Christian community?
I have a part that can only be played by me and when I’m finished I look forward to God saying, “well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your Lord.” (Matthew 25:23 NKJV). But it all starts with having a relationship with Jesus Christ.

What would you say to women who are wondering about how they fit into the Body of Christ?
Ephesians 5:30 says, “For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones.” This gives us the confidence to say that we belong to the body of Christ. We are called to His body.

Which Christian women do you take most of your personal inspiration from—either inside or outside your own church?Nomsa Philips. She shares the Word with so much passion. She doesn’t compromise and yet still remains humble and down to earth.

In one sentence, what do you believe God really wants from his daughters? To worship Him in spirit and in truth, then the mysteries of God will be revealed to them. Above all He wants to have a relationship with us.
