High Light Africa is a vision and idea-in-the-making that seeks to glorify God by shining the Light of Jesus Christ high in Southern Africa through helping and supporting the local indigenous Church.

God’s Light of Liberation!

We believe that Africa and her people can thrive in the blessings of God when the Light sets free those bound in chains of the darkness. There is so much unnecessary poverty and suffering due to the oppression and slavery of the darkness.

Triumphant Light

We believe that the Light of Christ is effectively capable of dispelling and driving out the darkness. Darkness is the absence of Light. There can be no darkness where the Light shines. What we need to do is let the Light shine in dark places.

Our motto is: Unleash the Light!Mountain_unleash the light

Scriptural Motivation

We are motivated by the Scriptures which say:

“The Light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not comprehended it.”
John 1:5

‘For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.’
2 Corinthians 4:6

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
Matthew 5:14-16

We want to help Africa help herself. We want to introduce rural Africans to the power and rich treasure available through the knowledge of God.

My goal is that they [Africa] may…have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”
Colossians 2:2, 3

Practical Passion

We have a passion for rural and neglected areas that seldom get attention. Although our primary goal is to help folk to understand and grasp the Gospel message of freedom and reconciliation to God, we also want to help practically by providing access to Natural Energy Harnessing Systems.

Unleash the Light…

While we seek to do this, we also have a passion and desire to motivate, inspire, enlist, train, equip, and deploy others to do the same. We are convinced that those who are set free by the Light and enjoy the treasures, liberty, and power which come to them as blessings from God, will not keep this a secret, but will shout it out from a mountaintop – so that others may enjoy the blessings that come from reconciliation with God.


Currently we are a husband and wife team who are supported by a treasured handful of mentors and advisors. We are trusting the Lord to direct our way as we strive towards the vision which we believe He has called us to.

  1. So excited about your calling and the mission. Cheering you on with joy in my heart. The Light effectively vanquishes the darkness, but it is often not without a struggle in the spiritual realm. So I am committing myself as one of your “prayer warriors” – you’ll need many of us, and from all over the globe we will stand with you and pray.
