Rev. Vuleywa Ntshinga
I am the youngest daughter of the late Rev Vein Ntshinga and Mrs Clara Ntshinga, born in Pretoria.
I grew up having a keen interest in the natural sciences. As a result I qualified as a professional natural scientist, having studied B.Sc. Hons and M.Eng. Sc. (waste management) at the universities of Zululand, Cape Town and New South Wales. I have served as both an environmental manager and consultant in various sectors.
My daughter, Lethu, is studying Biomedical Engineering at Harvard University.
Whilst I was happily growing in my profession, I was overwhelmed by the sense of God’s call to the ministry. I offered for ministry as a part-time minister and served in the Dumisani and Bellville Circuits. The call has been joyfully compelling so much that I am now in full time ministry, serving Gateway and Windsor Park Societies.
As I have walked with God in life and ministry I have grown to appreciate that every life is a gift of God, and because He loves and cares for us all, I must do the same.
My full name is Arthur Charles Egan – but I prefer to be called Charles or Charlie.
I have a Diploma and Bcom Degree in Financial Accounting. I am also an entrepreneur (I do invigilation, house-sitting, accounting services). Finally, I run a Non-Profit organisation called “Paid in Full”, where we work with worship teams in order to Build, Train, Equip and Release them to serve.
I have attended DMC on and off for the last few years, and became a member in August 2011. Over the years I have been asked to play with the worship team (primarily for the 18h30 service), and the odd 09h30 service. In October 2012, I started serving in the worship team on a more regular basis. The first of May 2013 I became a part of the DMC Pastoral Staff, as the part-time Worship Pastor.
It’s great to work with each of the staff members at DMC, and be a part of the family at DMC.
