CBC South Africa Graduation 2011

Carlynne stands with CBC-South Africa's first graduating class! (Click to enlarge)In 2003, Carlynne Kotzè left the familiar surroundings of her home in South Africa, and her successful life in the secular workplace, to pursue the Lord's leading to attend Charis Bible College in the United Kingdom. Carlynne saw, first hand, the Lord's provision and faithfulness to His word as she walked through the double opened doors before her (Isaiah 45:1-3) in the UK.

After successfully completing the CBC program in Walsall, England, Carlynne returned to South Africa to launch and direct a CBC extension school. Now, two years later, Carlynne and her ministry efforts are bearing fruit; CBC-SA celebrated its first ever commencement ceremony in November of 2011 with 12 students graduating from the school in Heidelberg.

Andrew Wommack Ministries Director of World Outreach, Wendell Parr, was on hand for the graduation ceremony. Wendell oversees the expansion of the Charis Bible College ministry and the development of the extension school campuses in the United States and abroad. "It was an exciting event," Wendell said of the first graduation ceremony in South Africa.

While many aspects of her job as director of CBC-SA are fulfilling, Carlynne truly enjoys watching the process of renewal that takes place as students grab hold of the Word. She also takes pleasure in being able to watch as ministry gifts come alive in her students. "The best is to see their gifting to start to manifest. For a while, I can see what they have not yet realized— that I love!" exclaimed Carlynne.
