What we do

Education

Education increases a child’s confidence, food security, and opens the door to economic empowerment of the individual and the community.

HERITAGE CHRISTIAN PRESCHOOL

Heritage Christian Preschool is a ministry of Not Forgotten.  HCP exists as an outreach to the community by partnering with families to create a safe place for children to learn through play. Our focus is to disciple quality teachers, to create a nurturing environment where children can grow in their social, emotional, and physical development.

We want to create a “fun” learning environment, where dreams are encouraged and learning is “playing.” Our passion is to see each and every child have a chance to dream and to live out that dream. Our goal is to create every opportunity to provide a high quality Christian education for every child. We want every child to know that they are not forgotten.

Discipleship

 

Discipleship is a lifelong process of helping others follow Jesus. We believe that discipleship is most effective when it is intentional, relational, and community centered. As we do life together: hearts are transformed, minds are renewed, and worlds are turned upside down!

Our vision is to:

1. Transform Hearts– by creating opportunities for South Africa’s youth to encounter Jesus Christ.

2. Renew Minds– through cultivating a lifestyle of studying the Bible and demonstrating the gospel.

3. Establish Kingdom Heritage– by training South Africa’s youth to be leaders for Christ in their families and their communities. We are doing this by hosting a Heritage Bible Club and a weekly Heritage Kids Club in Ikageng, a township of Potchefstroom, South Africa.

Heritage Bible Club – is held on a weekly basis at a local High School in Ikageng, Extension 7. Heritage Bible Club is an outreach of Not Forgotten and is designed to be a dynamic, student led Christian club where disciples are made and opportunities created for students to demonstrate the gospel by serving their community, school, and families.

Heritage Kids Club – is held on a weekly basis at Thembelihle Preschool in Ikageng, Extension 7. Heritage Kids Club is an outreach of Not Forgotten and began when a leader in the community asked us to invest into the spiritual lives of the children in the community. Through Heritage Kids Club we provide a safe environment for children to come play after school, receive unconditional love, and to learn about Jesus.   We firmly believe that God has a unique destiny for each child and that children do not have to wait until they are adults to be leaders for Christ. With this belief, Heritage Kids Club focuses on intentional discipleship, intentional love, and intentional fun!

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior

are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame

when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.

Psalm 127: 3-5

 

Development

 

It is our goal to reinforce the God-given value in each and every person we serve. We love to inspire people to improve their lives by using the gifts and abilities that God has given them to support themselves. By providing opportunities for people to celebrate their capacity to work, we seek to encourage the belief that “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Phil. 4:13)

We believe that in order to help the children, we also need to help the parents. Our business models exist to create self-sustaining income for the parent’s of the Heritage Christian Preschool. All proceeds will go towards providing income to the parents and to support Heritage Christian Preschool.

 

Red Thread is a ministry of Not Forgotten that focuses on creating sustainable jobs, providingred thread logo skills training, and empowering the caregivers of orphans and vulnerable children to care for their families. Learning a new skill opens up the door of opportunity. In the process of learning a new skill and doing it with excellence, we have noticed a renewed purpose in life and the abilitiy to dream about the future.

 

“Red Thread” was inspired by a Biblical story of Rahab, in the book of Joshua.  If you read the story of Rahab, you will know that she was a prostitute. Even though Rahab’s circumstances were bad, she decided to “take a chance” and because of that one decision, it changed the course of her future, and the future of her linage. Rahab became the great, great, grandmother of King David and also was included in the linage of Jesus.  It’s so symbolic how Rahab was saved through a “scarlet cord,” which reminds me of the blood of Jesus.
