The Mighty Men Western Cape from September 20 to 22 and the Mighty Women Western Cape from Friday (September 13) to Sunday (September 14) will both be taking place on the new MMC WC venue on Sandringham Farm Estate at Stellenbosch.
“We are a mighty move of God and not a church. We encourage all pastors to bring their flocks and enjoy being away for a weekend of camping and fellowship at both events, uniting with others and from both near and far,” said Piper James of MMC WC.
The women’s camp which grew out of the men’s event was launched last year and tickets for this year’s camp, themed “You are royalty”, have been sold out.
With MMC WC’s move from Malmesbury to Sandringham Farm Estate the annual men’s and women’s gatherings would be held over a 10-day period in order to be “compact and impactful”, said Piper James.
The venue is ideally situated with all main roads to and from Cape Town running alongside the farm. See this link for the location and general details.
Women can look forward to a great lineup with excellent leadership and drive, from chairlady Simone Simon, who is also leading the praise and worship for the weekend, and speakers Lindy-Ann Hopley, Charmain Boschoff, married couple Natasha and Denver Mooken, Nelize Cromhout, Rosebud Tsobane, Ina Murison-McGowan and Zane Meas from the Fatherhood Foundation, who will host the Sunday morning family service and ask invited men to state what exactly they want in a woman.
For those with lots of energy Mighty Women Lehane Oosthuizen is also bringing a Mighty Ride Group with a cycle run to the event. Details available here.
The next weekend Mighty Men will gather under the theme of Born Free. They will bring awareness to organ and skin donorship and youth will be challenged to step up.
Speakers include Vincent Alexander, Gustav Du Toit, Errol Joemath, Dylan Boetes, Gerrie Bester, Trevor Herbert and Johnny Louw who for the first time will host the Sunday morning family service.
Etienne Smit will head up praise and worship and guest artists will include singers Heinz Winckler, Warren Elliott, and Vincent Peter.
“We believe many lives will be turned about and men and youth will understand that they have a pivotal role to play in God’s order. It will also be a time for families to be restored,” says Piper James.
“Bertie Cloete, one of the directors of MMC WC will run in from some faraway place and as he always does and which is an integral part of our weekend with a flaming torch in hand, bringing awareness to MM WC along the way.
“We have both men and women flying in from overseas to be with us this year at the respective events and who are making their stay with us a joint working and serving commitment and holiday here in South Africa combined.”
