Important Notice:

We are aware of a growing number of false training institutions claiming to be awarding a variety of degrees. We strongly advise our members and Pastors not to obtain qualifications from these Institutions, as they are not recognized by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA), or the AFM of SA.
