About Crossover Transformation Group
Photo: Patrick Kuwana, founder
Crossover Transformation Group was established in August 2011 as a result of a calling to provide biblical business leadership and biblical transformational leadership training, consulting and professional services to equip the body of Christ with knowledge and practical tools that will allow them to become agents of transformation so that the Glory of God can rise up in all sectors of society especially in the marketplace. We especially believe that we are in the season in which the fullness of God’s blessing is about to be released on the earth, but before this can happen believers need to be equipped to operate their businesses according to God’s economic principles and not compromise through placing their trust on worldly principles and wisdom.
Our Vision is to transform the heart of Africa one person, one family, one school, one business, one government, one community, one city, one country at a time.
First EstateFirst Estate Contact: Francois Marais
First Estate is a ministry that wishes to supply the Body of Christ – at large – a free tool that they can use to speak blessings over their city/province/state or nation. Our mandate is to get the ‘scattered over the whole earth’ to speak ‘whole, wholesome’ words over God’s creation in answer to creation’s indictment against us in Romans 8, and the fulfilment of Genesis 1:28.

FOR SAFOR SAFreedom of Religion - South Africa
The Real Threat
Freedom of Religion South Africa (FOR SA) is a non-profit, non-denominational Christian organisation working to protect and promote religious freedom in South Africa. Although our Constitution guarantees the establishment of these rights, Christianity is increasingly targeted by those who are determined to silence people of faith, using the courts, government commissions such as the SAHRC and CGE and legislation to carry out their agendas. This is not a simple legal skirmish. It is a battle for the soul of our nation.
FOR SA has a single-minded and unwavering commitment to ensure that we can continue to live in a South Africa where all people are free to celebrate and live out their faith. Although freedom of religion is by definition doctrinally neutral, as an organization we stand firmly in support of the principles of God’s Word. Our primary commitment is to work to ensure that our religious rights, as Bible-believing Christians, are secured for generations to come.
Against this background, FOR SA serves as a voice for Christians in South Africa to government, Parliament and society on issues affecting the autonomy of the Church and our constitutional freedom to:
- believe what we believe according to our interpretation of the Bible;
- declare our religious beliefs openly and without fear of interference or punishment by the State; and
- manifest our religious beliefs by worship and by practice or by teaching and dissemination.
Calling Christians to Stand Together
We believe that the best form of defense begins with building an enduring capacity to monitor, review, communicate and redress areas where freedom of religion is under threat
Since the start of the organisation in 2014, FOR SA has seen great success before Parliament, government commissions and courts (including the Constitutional Court), where we have defended religious freedom. We are at the forefront of the fight for religious freedom in South Africa, working closely also with our national and international allies such as Christian Concern and Christian Legal Centre in the UK.

Manne Kamp Eastern CapeManne Kamp Eastern Cape
Mannekamp Eastern Cape is an annual, weekend, men’s camp that provides a spiritual climate for men, from all cultural and denominational backgrounds, to get together in a relaxing environment and to better understand the role of the Man in the home, in business and in life with Jesus as the nucleus.
The vision for Manne Kamp was given to David Naude on a return journey from the awesome 2009 Mighty Men’s Conference at Shalom, Greytown, as he pondered what he could do for men back home in Port Elizabeth and surrounds: The vision was simple , to gather men in a setting where the holy spirit could challenge them and inspire them to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour.
Next Manne Kamp
This resulted in the first annual Manne Kamp in October 2009 at Van Stadens resort near PE. The next Manne Kamp will be at Van Stadens from October 26 to 28, 2012.
The typical Manne Kamp programme includes times of worship and testimonies on Friday and Saturday night and leisure activities during the day. Wives and children are invited to join their men at a family service at 9am on Sunday. Families are welcome to spend the day at the scenic Van Stadens River Mouth campsite after the service.

Value LifeValue Life Contact: Peter and Terry Throp
Our names are Peter and Terry Throp. (husband and wife, semi -retired) We started the “Value life” campaign after receiving a ‘message from God’ to tell the people that abortion is evil.
The ‘Value Life’ Cross allows The Lord to reveal Himself to all who view it that all life is created by Him.
Our vehicles are branded with the ‘Value life’ message. and our mission is to travel around as much as possible all over the Cape to put the message across that ‘abortion is evil’. We always make sure when we park the vehicle that it is well exposed to the public eye. Most times God provides a vacant parking space for us.
We also have had T-shirts printed with the message which we wear in public. This is our ‘Pro-life’ uniform that we wear almost every day. (a moving statement in the public eye. Shopping malls, even restaurants.)
The Holy Spirit has laid it on our hearts that the Lord is offended by the silence on abortion and the worship of a false God. The elephant is in the room brothers and sisters in Christ!

Women on the Move for Christ MinistryWomen on the Move for Christ Ministry Contact: Pastor Nerina Smith
To teach and equip women their value in God’s eyes; Teach them different skills. Motivate and encourage women through God’s Word; Reach out to women in spiritual and physical need. Involvement in feeding projects
To empower women in all communities, through different ministry tools. Strategy: Women conferences; Crafts, Life skills and Beauty workshops Stewardship and Financial freedom Motivational speeches at tea functions And breakfasts
How it all began:
Women on the Move 4 Christ Ministries was established in October 2008 by Nerina Smith, a business woman from Cape Town, who is also involved in the hospitality industry. • 1995 nominated as Business Woman of the Year in the Western Cape. • 1995 – 2005 served on the S.A. Council for Business Women, -‐ Executive member of the Cape Town branch, -‐ Executive Committee of the National Board. * 2010 Ordained through FCCA-‐Intl. • 2011 Elected as director on the board of Deaf Friendly. In 1997 the Lord gave her a prophecy, saying that He is going to use her in a Women’s Ministry, ministering to women all over South Africa and abroad. 2006 to 2008 Nerina served as Vice-‐President of King’s Daughters of Excellence, together with Past. Rina Kinnear. She loves to talk to women about their self-‐image, how to set goals and fulfil their dreams, how to be a woman of God, hospitality and inner/outer beauty. After visiting women’s conferences in Mexico and Texas, where the Lord told her that she was going to start running as a lion with her ministry, she established Women on the Move 4 Christ Ministries. The ministry ‘moves’ all over South Africa and other countries in Africa. They are also involved with a project in Clarkson, EC, where they mentor and provide help with their feeding and educational needs.
One of Nerina’s very precious moments to remember was when the Lord spoke to her to ‘go and teach them to observe all things as He has taught her’, while Diana Hagee, from Cornerstone Church in Texas, USA, was teaching on hospitality. Exactly a year later one of her conference attendees made a remark about how the Lord showed her that Nerina was teaching them to prepare for the table of the Lord and to prepare as brides for the coming of the King!! She remembered this very well – she burst into tears, at the remembrance of Diana’s conference. There was a lady who is leader of the women’s group at the AFM church in her hometown. She had a lot of issues about her husband who was an alcoholic. At the end of the conference she mentioned that the Lord taught her that day, that she still had a lot to be thankful for, even for her husband, who was not brutal with her when under the influence. She was taught that she had value in God’s eyes and He chose her to be useful to Him!! After the team stayed over at her house, she knew for sure that she was also able to show hospitality, even though she did not have a lot to share.
…. And a mother who couldn’t believe that the speaker is hearing impaired. She told Nerina that her daughter is also deaf. The young woman would like to be trained as an evangelical worker for deaf people, but thought that this is impossible. Past. Nerina assured her that it was possible!! She could direct them to the right connections, in order to be trained. The young woman went to Deaf Christian Ministries Africa in January 2011 to reach her dream. No wonder the motto of the Ministry — “We empower women to empower themselves”
Nerina is also a regular presenter on the Kruiskyk TV Channel on Deaf Friendly.
