Thandi Victoria Sibiya was born in a village called KwaMbonambi. She is 58 years of age. Thandi was married to Ps Wilfred Sibiya and they had two children, but both her husband and children died recently and the Churches were left in her care.
In 1979 she encountered Jesus in a tent crusade, and He changed her life completely. She became His chosen instrument and was called to ministry in 1982.
Thandi planted the church at Esikhawini in Zululand in 1996, and is now serving as the overseer of that church and seven other sister churches which they have since planted. She has a teaching and counselling ministry. Thandi is humble and gentle and has dedicated herself to serving her communities. The Church has ministries for men, children, youth, and women. They also have a vegetable gardening project which enables them to help by giving food to the poor, the widows and orphans.
The vision of the church is to preach the Word of God and build the Kingdom in all places and to provide spiritual empowerment – ministering through prayers, bible studies, counselling and home cells.
