Adrian chairs

About Trevor Nthlola: Trevor is widowed and a father of three – 2 daughters in their twenties and a teenage son.  He is a pastor of The Vineyard International Association of Churches (founded by the late John Wimber) and the leader of the Emthonjeni-Fountain of Life Project.  Trevor is also a post-graduate student at University of Pretoria.

About Adriaan Vlok: Adriaan was minister of Law and Order in South Africa from 1986 – 1991 in the final years of the apartheid era.  In 1999 Vlok was granted amnesty by the TRC.  He was the only cabinet minister to admit community crimes, including the bombing of Khotso House.

In 2006, in a dramatic gesture he washed the feet of Frank Chikane who had been targeted by Vlok for assassination.  Subsequently he sought forgiveness for other activities.  He became a Christian prior to these public apologies and cites these as the cause of his change of heart, his role in forgiveness and his need to seek forgiveness.  In 2015 he started a charity called Feed a Child.
