Maruda Christian School



Biblical character building and Excellence in education


The vision for planting mission schools flows from the IMD (Institute for Ministry Development) vision statement:


To engage least reached people groups and spiritually needy areas of Southern Africa by identifying faithful men and women amongst them and helping these leaders to multiply their church planting effort through discipleship and leadership development.


The vision of IMD to plant a Christian schools flows from a firm belief that Christian Education will shape a child’s life to love and fear God and live by Biblical principles. They will become the faithful, honest and productive citizens who will live life with integrity and who will be an asset to their families and communities.


We also believe that Christian Education is the answer to the educational crisis in South Africa. According to a study done in 2007, 80% of South African schools are dysfunctional. Our vision is to come along side faithful, visionary men, with whom we have built a relationship, to provide excellent education that is accessible to needy children.


"Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. And these words, which I command you this day, shall be in your heart: And you shall teach them diligently unto your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise up. And you shall bind them for a sign upon your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. And you shall write them upon the posts of your house, and on your gates."  -Deuteronomy 6:4-9
