MEC Community Services


We offer a part-time program allowing students to be dedicated to their spouses, their children, their place of work, and at the same time dedicate themselves meaningfully to the Word of God.

The program is Internationally accredited through Jerry Savelle Ministries International, Dr Jerry Savelle being the International President.

Each Bible Institute is planted into a local church enabling believers to attend Bible classes while still enjoying participation in their local church body and community.

We have the facilities to support up to 21 children aged from birth to 16 years old, and specializes in caring for those with severe physical and profound cognitive disabilities.

Our goal is to improve the child’s quality of life, finding practical solutions to help both the child and their family, work with and develop their individual abilities to the full.

Our mission is to provide a safe and loving environment for children with disabilities, a place where they can receive dedicated care, so Mum and Dad can return to work with peace of mind, knowing their special child is in the right hands.

JC Daycare is an investment in our communities and country, creating a love and caring environment where the children are well cared for.

Our Vision is to have a JC Daycare at every primary school in every area where it is needed. Introducing God's love to young children, preparing them for a life of caring for their fellow man.

Our Mission is to feed each child a well balanced diet, strengthening their bodies and minds. To introduce them to God's love, ministering not only to the child, but also to the family, teaching them life skills.

H.U.G.S. Hands is another way in which we apply the Gospel in a practical way by doing something for those in need. H.U.G.S. Hands reaches out to the old Ladies in Kraaifontein Huis Ravenzicht by helping sickly and elderly women.

By trimming nails and rubbing hands, a gesture much welcomed by both Huis Ravenzicht where staff is limited and those on the receiving side, many of which can't do it themselves anymore.

The bible places much emphasis on taking care of the widows and the orphans, and off course we take the Word of God seriously. It has much reward! Dare volunteer to join and put a smile on a dear old face!

Our Dream is to have a property of our own, where we can build a home large enough to comfortable be able to house children in need for as long as is needed.

Our greatest need is funding. We do not get any government funding and are totally dependant on contributions from the public.

Our Journey first started when we looked after Jake, a newborn baby who’s aids infected mom, at times just became to weak to look after him.

Marriage Counceling

Dead, dull marriages are reawakened, hurting marriages are healed, and good marriages receive new life and vision. Our fourteen-week in-home course for couples will change your marriage.

Small Groups

A small group of believers from various denominations gather every Tuesday evening at the house of Marinda Cornelius. For the past 20+ years this has been happening and various people have passed through at different seasons of their lives.

Youth Ministry

From that perspective, every possible situation in a teen’s life is measured up against this Scripture and then categorised as either ‘steal, kill and destroy’ or ‘life in abundance’.


We envision every church and congregation to form a network of believers across denominational and cultural borders. Supporting one another and empowering women to make a difference in not only their own lives, but also the lives of others and their broader community.

Woman of Valour

Woman of Valor retreats creates an opportunity to reach out to the different communities, where people of all sectors of the community comes together discussing different issues communities struggles with and providing biblical solutions.
