Mighty Men Conference 2014
We were honored to have the following esteemed guest speakers at our MMC Conference this year:
Jews for Jesus South Africa is a Jewish evangelistic agency. Born in South Africa in the winter of 1989 as a result of an ongoing ministry in the United States that eventually demanded a permanent international presence.
Christ in the Passover hows the link between the ancient Festival of Redemption and Christ as the Lamb of God. By using a sermonic demonstration and scripture we will walk through the Jewish Passover, weaving a story of the Exodus together with the life, death and resurrection of Christ. The words He spoke in the upper room come as each Hebraic item is carefully explained. This experience will be deepened by the celebrating of communion.
Pastor Manuel Da Silva Ribeiro

During his time as a Pastor and leader in the local church, he has become known as a person of his word. He is not only prepared to talk the talk, but he actually walks it too, where he calls it as it is and a spade is a spade. After the Lord Jesus Christ, family is the most important part of his walk with the Lord.

These are over and above the hundreds of children that have been through their home over the years, some of whom have stayed close and in contact with them.
