It's spit-and-polish for Western Cape Mighty Men as new team takes charge
The revived Western Cape Mighty Men Conference is ready for action with a fired-up, newly elected committee with a distinctly military character.
Five of the six committee members are former soldiers and the chairman and 2IC are true Mighty Men veterans, they attended all seven original MMC events on Angus Buchan's farm, Shalom and helped lead regional MMCs in 2011.
The MMC movement in the Western Cape was revived in May after it was suspended following a surprise announcement in February, putting paid to an anticipated MMC camp in 2012. The committee is now actively looking for a new, centrally located Western Cape venue and will announce plans for next year's MMC as soon as is possible. Meanwhile the committee has asked for any dedicated Mighty Men in the Western Cape who are willing to help build an effective provincial network by acting as ambassadors in their towns or villages, to email their names and contact details to Gateway News firstname.lastname@example.org.
Newly-elected secretary to the MMC committee, Piperjames (James McGowan), a former British Army piper, penned the following brief profiles on the new committee members:
Andre Vercuiel- Chairman
A businessman who heads up a security fencing business, he will bring steadfastness and efficiency to the running of the MMC. He is an absolute stickler for getting it right on all fronts including relationships with all relevant professional bodies and authorities that must be engaged in organising a MMC event.
Gerhard Visagie, Second-in-charge
Gerhard is a businessman, living in Wellington, Western Cape. He is driven, an organiser of men and logistics, and has literally hundreds upon hundreds of Mighty Men contacts all over South Africa
He has a calm approach to all matters and the committee has every confidence in his ability to ensure that everything, from the stage to the ablutions and service-provider teams, will be in place at future MMCs.
Stuart and his wife are busy preparing to go full-time into a ministry focused on the family and particularly on young people. They plan to use their farm, between Worcester and Robertson, for this purpose.
Morne Uys, Head of Health and Safety
Brought up in a good Christian home, Morne says that he has always believed in God. But at times he has felt that he was not doing enough as a Christian. He says that God started to work with him this year at the Karoo Mighty Men Conference 2012 in Middelburg where he began to experience the Glory of the Holy Spirit for the first time.
He brings a methodical let's get the job done! approach to the health and safety needs of the MMC Western Cape.
Jan Louw, Head of Marketing
Jan has attended many Mighty Men Conferences and is passionate about the return of MMC Western Cape and the glory it brings to the Lord and the fellowship that it creates.
