Chapter Summary

His People Christian Ministries church in Johannesburg (His People) was an elegant three storey stone building tucked behind a six-foot wall, electric fence and old oak trees in one of the previously white suburbs of Johannesburg. This gives an outline of the history of the church, its structure, a typical service, the activities and leadership of the church and the theology of the pastors. At His People the leaders believed that Christians would grow in their faith by doing things that helped them learn more about God, the Bible and the Christian community. They placed particular emphasis on encouraging people to do something in service to others and thereby create a circle of people who cared for them and whom they cared for. The language of the church was that of the masculine business world. Its theology focused on 'purpose', 'achievement' and 'leadership' - qualities of masculinity not femininity.
