Knysna Hope is a collective of diverse, compassionate volunteers who engage in relationship building, caring, helps, and upliftment initiatives in every part of our community for the glory of God.
Knysna Hope is a registered Non-Profit Organization (NPO 170-161), created by church planting missionaries in Knysna, South Africa. Based on the principle of pursuing the peace and welfare of our city (Jeremiah 29), Knysna Hope seeks to nurture redemptive relationships through cooperative upliftment initiatives in this culturally and economically diverse community. In addition to church-planting, we focus on education (theological, music, and general), youth engagement, skills development, and biblical counselling.
We have our own initiatives, and also assist other community organizations and ministries with their programs. This co-operation enables each of us to use our gifts, talents, experience and resources as we share the Gospel, make disciples, train leaders, and encourage church planting in Knysna and beyond.
Caleb serves as the Chief Operations Officer of Knysna Hope. Using
his background in business and logistics, he coordinates the operations of Knysna Hope across all its ministries.
As part of our Garden Route Academy of Fine Arts, Terrah teaches music to build relationships with students in 3 area schools, teaches private voice, piano, and recorder lessons, directs a community
a cappella choir, and leads a teen girl's bible study.
Together, we lead worship at Lagoonside Baptist Church, coordinate youth events, and host a home discipleship group. In the coming months, we anticipate being part of a new church plant, serving an under-engaged segment of Knysna.
