Dr. J.J. La Poorta – Education & Training Director
In November 2007 the AFM established the Education and Training Department with the responsibility to train all members of the church including: deacons, elders, assembly leaders, youth workers and leaders, children’s ministry teachers, pastors, members for specialised ministry (e.g. missionaries), evangelists as well as in-service training of ordained pastors. The Department is dedicated to provide responsive, quality ministry education, training and development.
The Department is also compliant with all requirements of the Department of Higher Education and its relevant sub-divisions including the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA), the Council for Higher Education and the Higher Education Quality Committee. The Department is committed to promoting excellence in ministry.
