The Global Fund For Jesus was conceived in 2007 when Sipho Mseleku, an attorney, seasoned businessman and director for some of the corporate giants in the world, received a vision from God.
The Fund focuses on uplifting the disadvantaged through education, health, infrastructure development, poverty alleviation, food security and employment creation programmes.
The Global Fund For Jesus (GFFJ) programmes will be targeted towards areas where specific needs are identified, after which solutions for positive impact will be formulated. The organisation is in its mobilization phase, and is scheduled for launch in 2020. The goal is for it to become the best and largest fund for social justice in the world. The GFFJ will enable the Global Business Roundtable (GBR) to do what Jesus would have done to address the challenges facing His people were He physically present today.
The GFFJ is a vehicle that will enable God’s people to follow in the footsteps of our Lord and Saviour, empowering us to deal with the challenges of the less fortunate; in the same spirit with which He carried out His ministry.
Thus fulfilling the scripture:
“ For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me” Mathew 25:35-36 NIV.
WHAT IS THE RATIONALE BEHIND GFFJ?
What Makes Us Unique
A God inspired vision
The GFFJ plans to confront the challenges of our societies in partnership with God’s people – most of whom are members of the Global Business Roundtable across the world.
A God driven mandate
Our mandate is guided by values such as compassion for the less privileged, as well as love, in order to empower and reveal God’s purpose for humanity through capacity building and promotion of equitable access to opportunities.
An approach that values people
The GFFJ recognizes that people are our key asset. The Global Fund For Jesus is itself testament to the importance of people working together – it is an initiative born out of the willingness of GBR members to commit their resources towards the cause of Jesus.
A vision for phenomenal growth
The GFFJ is expected to be the largest fund in assets, in shares, in property and in cash according to the giver of the vision.
A heart for the needy
The GFFJ acknowledges the heart of God for all people including the less privileged. The fund is intended to provide a channel for God’s people to emulate Jesus in extending a helping hand to the needy.
