Annual General Meeting

Leaders and members from across the globe converged in this vital meeting to reflect on the status of the organisation and to adopt the board of directors’ resolutions and audited financial statements that reflected a gargantuan growth of the organisations over the past financial year. The Convenor, His Excellency Mr Sipho Mseleku took this opportunity to also clarify members and leaders on a number of important issues affecting the organisation, current and future, and also to define the kind of leader necessary to take the organisation forward at all levels. In the same breath, he explained the kind of leaders GBR does not need, as they will hamper the growth of the organisation. He emphasised on the importance and urgency of everyone to prepare in line with vision 2020 and the importance of serving with utmost diligence and humility such as Christ would epitomise.

Day 4: GBR World Congress

The final congress was very important as it marked the official launching of the GBR platform by GBR Sweden Chairman Mr Bengt Arnesson. This platform introduces a new paradigm to the systems of the organisation, and to the world, as it would introduce a gold-backed financial system, doing away with the Babylonian system. In this platform, members from across the globe will trade and transact, will have access to markets and goods, education employment and many other benefits.

The grand finale was the evening that belongs to Master Jesus, the saviour of mankind and the founder of GBR and GFFJ. Guests and delegates from across the world, including renowned dignitaries from the political, spiritual, Academic, business, civil society and the many different sectors of society descended to the magnificently decorated marquee. The event was solemn and everybody was dressed formally in ball gowns and black tie respectively.

As custom, the Annual GFFJ Banquet took time to recognise leaders and posthumously awarded the annual lifetime award to the late Minister Collins Chabane of the Republic of South Africa. Minister Chabane met his untimely death last year, a day after addressing the annual Banquet. His family, Including his wife Khensani and son Matimba, as well as colleagues in Minister Lindiwe Zulu were present to receive the award.

Alan Cock and the Johannesburg festival orchestra, Lady of song Sibongile Khumalo and the GBR Worship team serenaded the audience, breaking into jovial melody, including the rendition of the Global anthem, Nkosi Sihlangene, Lord we are gathered. Indeed Jesus honoured this prestigious event hosted in his name, and he showed up.

We are eternally grateful…

SHARES (EQUITY)
MOBILISATION

The Shares (Equity) Mobilisation commenced in 2015 at the GBR Prayer Camp and Retreat, where the second campaign for shares or equity mobilisation was launched.

Companies (corporates and SME’s) are encouraged to donate or pledge a percentage of the shares in their companies to the GFFJ. Some of these shares may be intended for black economic empowerment or indigenisation objectives enabling the GFFJ to be a powerful and strategic partner to companies interested in empowering disadvantaged and previously disadvantaged communities.

Donating shares in this selfless manner follows the example of Christ, who exhorted his followers to leave everything, take up their cross, and follow Him.

There are rewards we have been promised for giving, but the greater honour is that we lay our life down for our brethren.

WHY DONATE

In order to follow the example of Jesus in facing the challenges of the less fortunate; to be a brother to the lost and the disadvantaged, a voice to the voiceless, a helper to the helpless and a source of hope for the hopeless.
