WHAT IS AFC (ALIVE FOR CHRIST)?
AFC is a year where selected young applicants between the ages of 17 and 25 come together to live out their passion for Christ! These students are from all over the planet and have one thing in common – To serve the body of Christ and live out their passion for ministry.
For several years, the AFC students of Spirit Word Ministries have preached the uncompromising Word of God with boldness. Thousands of people have come to know Jesus as their Saviour and thousands have been healed. The blind see, the deaf hear and the cripples walk. The Bible is full of promises for young people!
To quote a few; Acts 2:17 says, “And it shall come to pass in the last days, God declares, that I will pour out My Spirit upon all mankind, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy and your young men shall see visions and your old men will dream dreams.“
1 Tim. 4:12, “Let no one despise your youth, but be an example of the believers in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, and in purity.”
Jer. 1:7, “ Say not: ‘I am only a youth’; for you shall go to all whom I shall send you, and whatever I command you, you shall speak.”
At AFC, we prioritize the uncompromised truth. Students are given a first year Bible School course comprised of Prophet Kobus van Rensburg’s teachings which was recorded over many years of preaching and studying the Word of God. We do not only learn about the Word of God, we also get to put what we have learned, into practice.
We have many outreaches in our community, as well as other cities, towns and countries.
Our involvement with Lofdal Christian School, is one of our commitments; to show and teach young students that God has a great plan and a prosperous future for them.
Our prayer for the AFC students is that they will realize that God has a secure future for them and that He will use them now!
If you are between the ages of 17 and 25, and you are on-fire for God.
A typical week in the life of an AFC student….
One year of training, equipping and practical, outliving Christ. These students come to realize the GRACE and power in the cross of Jesus, and that Christ is living inside of them and has a purpose for their lives right now! Prophet Kobus, as well as other men and woman of God’s teachings are used to teach and equip the students throughout the year.
They have classes with different lecturers, and practical ministry helping with maintenance, kitchen, TV channel, bookshop and other duties on a daily basis.
In this way, they have a great perspective and gain practical experience in a ministry environment.
They attend all church services weekly and are edified by the living word of God.
During each of these services, they all have appointed duties, such as Ushering, Sound mixing, Cabling, Coffee Shop etc.
AFC is part of Spirit Word Youth services on Friday nights, giving them exposure to minister to other young people, which builds their confidence to step out in faith.
Some of our outreaches consist of visiting schools, prisons, hospitals, townships and other ministries all over the country, where the students boldly preach the word of God and many lost souls have been saved, delivered and healed!
ABOUT THE AFC LEADERS
We are compelled by the love of Christ.
For us as leaders, it is a great priviledge to train and minister to young people, equipping them to do greater works in Christ.
It brings joy to our hearts when we see them grow and mature with developed characters in Christ.
Many students choose to remain in full time ministry after this year. With invitation from Kobus van Rensburg, some are asked to join Spirit Word ministries as we work for God. Many doors are open for AFC students due to the great work that Spirit Word Ministries has done over the past 30 years.
Our prayer is to see every student passing through AFC, whether they remain in ministry, work or go on to study.
That they will be Christ to all and know Jesus – The Prince of Peace, thus being – ALIVE FOR CHRIST
