Transforming Africa through the study of God’s Word
Our vision is not only to take the gospel to Africa ourselves, but to also equip more and more Christians in Africa to explore the Bible for themselves, live out its truth, and share its good news.
As a powerful discipleship tool, more and more of Africa’s church leaders (from every denomination and stream) are discovering the life, and world-changing transformation that comes from exploring God’s Word for themselves, then helping others to do the same. Thousands of lives in multiple countries have so far been impacted by Explore.
First created in 1995, Explore is a discipleship course originating from George Whitefield College in Cape Town. It was created by Rev. Dr David Seccombe and revised with a team of GWC Faculty members to provide easier understanding for distance learners in 2015.

Explore consists of eight 12-week modules that have been uniquely created in Africa, for Africa. It aims to empower Christians throughout the continent to deepen their knowledge of God, their love for his Word and their understanding in his unfolding plans for the world. Click here for more info.
We aim to establish more regional hubs to create a supportive structure throughout Africa. We currently have hubs in six regions.
In 2022 we are translating the modules titled “Explore the Work of the Apostles” and “Explore the World’s Creator” into seven languages and plan to reproduce the original material.
MORE INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY:
Tech advancements allow us to expand our reach and stay in touch with facilitators in remote areas. For example, thanks to a hand-held device that provides ‘internet in a box’ functions, we can connect to previously inaccessible areas.
By 2030, we aim to reach the majority of countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. In 2022 we will be extending Explore in Zambia and introducing it to Eswatini and South Sudan.
