David C Jantjies (PTD, BA, B.Ed., M.Ed.) is an acclaimed educationist and leader in his community and church. Apart from having been a high school principal and inspector of schools, David also landed himself senior management positions in national rail transport and in the central bank of South Africa.
David has extensively traveled his home country, South Africa, as well as Nigeria, Lesotho, Swaziland, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Namibia, several European countries, and the United States of America. He has represented his church internationally several times, worshiped with bishops and priests, yet he also sat down to pray and share bread with the down-and-out.
However, it is David’s unequivocal passion for Christian education, saving of souls, caring for the needy, and praying with those whose words have stuck in their throats, that keeps on driving him forward. He fervently believes that, “What lies behind us and what lies before us, are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
