What was the origin of Awakening?

Awakening was born out of the need to strengthen and launch reliable, effective and trustworthy ministers to support the local pastor in ministry. Young and old, new and experienced – many believers have attended Awakening, leaving spiritually stirred, actived and awakened, ready to play an active part in church and their communities. As a result of the course, strongholds are broken in the lives of the attendees, they start flowing in the power of God, their spiritual growth is activated and they will be exercising signs and wonders through the Holy Spirit on a daily basis. Awakening, in short, can in no other way be explained as: empowering, enabling, uplifting, strengthening and connecting a believer to operate in the Gifts of the Spirit. Above all, Awakening touches the hearts of believers and that is immeasurable!

What can one expect when attending an Awakening weekend?

Awakening is filled with excellence and fine detail, enriched with Word-based truths, from the presentation of the course through to the printed manual where personal notes can also be added to the material presented.

From the very start, attendees are welcomed, expectations are set and the weekend’s programme is explained. The course involves over 14 hours of impartation and practical ministry, giving every attendee the opportunity to practice and exercise the subject throughout. During the weekend, starting on the Friday evening proceeding to Saturday morning and evening, sessions are progressively led to enable attendees to minister and move in the gifts of the Spirit and to release the anointing of God.

At the end of an Awakening weekend, believers and fellow leaders usually walk out inspired and assured that they are instruments in the hands of the Lord, ready to impact their surrounding communities.

What does the Awakening course entail?

Awakening is an advanced training package designed to equip individuals and leadership to minister in their local congregation. It is unique in presentation, practicality, experience and impartation. Awakening, with its ministry and leadership, believes whole-heartedly in the support of the local church and the strengthening of their structures and commitment levels. To overcome language barriers, course material can either be presented in English or Afrikaans.
