Johannesburg: Renovation Started
Mukhanyo’s leadership has always realised that our location in Johannesburg has enormous potential. But several limitations made it difficult to exploit it fully. Not for much longer! A renovation and construction project of R1 million has started in October.
The building is within walking distance from the Johannesburg bus terminal, just two blocks north of the Gautrain’s Park Station. The location is ideal, but the teaching facilities inside were somewhat limited and basic. This all will have changed, hopefully by early next year, ready for a new intake of students.
At present the centre has 27 students who taking the accredited BTh degree and Diploma programmes. New classrooms, a large library, a computer centre, offices and other facilities will be able to cater for at least triple this figure. In addition the security outside the building has been improved. The City of Johannesburg has also upgraded the area around Park Station.
The enthusiastic faculty and admin staff, under the management of Dr Japie Malan, is looking forward to the new year. They pray that our Father in Heaven will bless and enable them to teach more and more students to serve the church as pastors and other church leaders.
The developments at Jhb campus are gratifying - and brings back good memories about the "research", findings and recommendations of Jons and myself during 2009. I am especially grateful for the strategic long term view of the leadership. Oom Chris
