Nerena is studying a three-year degree in Theology at George Whitefield College (GWC) in Cape Town.
Nerena’s love for South Africa grew from visiting her grandparents in Cape Town as a child. When she became a Christian whilst at university, God gave Nerena the desire to be involved with teaching his word to others. Nerena spent 12 years involved in student ministry in Durban, before moving to Cape Town to study at GWC.
Nerena hopes that her studies at GWC will refresh and equip her for continued ministry among women and girls.

Thanks to God for bringing us students at George Whitefield College (GWC) safely through another semester. It was a weekly climb of assignment hills for five months, which became more mountainous as the semester progressed – time got shorter and assignments didn’t!
I’m particularly grateful for my Thursday classes which were Ethics and Christology, both taken by one zestful and very thought-through lecturer. In Ethics, we considered the engagement of the Church with the world around it and zoomed-in to consider poverty, politics and racism, each pertinent to South Africa. In Christology, a friend and I would often turn around to one another at the end of the lecture and have ‘blown away’ written across our faces! It was very helpful to talk from all sorts of different angles about the two natures of divinity and humanity in the one person of our Lord Jesus Christ. It was excellent to be in-person for the whole semester and enjoy conversations with classmates between lectures – sometimes with a quick walk in the wind to the sea and back (one of the advantages of a bible college at the beach!). Another thing I am thankful for at GWC is the diversity of perspectives heard whilst studying alongside students from across South Africa, Africa and a few beyond. This has been sharpening for all of us as we engage on issues and have our own context’s understanding of the Bible challenged.
