THE PAUL PROJECT
Working with like minded people to transform the city of Port Elizabeth for Jesus Christ
PROJECTS IN THE CITY
Jesus prayed so passionately in John 17 about unity between His Father (ABBA Papa), Himself (Our Saviour), Holy Spirit (Our Comforter and Educator Who leads us into all truth) and ourselves that I shudder and cry out to Him when I see the dis-unity amongst believers in the world…
It has long been a vision of mine, a Vision God gave me just as I was going through my second divorce, to begin the unification between the congregations of the churches in the city, and so strengthen the body of Christ into ONE BODY – not remain with several individual and separate “Bodies of Christ” as we are known to do.
It is shocking and utterly heart-breaking that there is more unity in various other religions than there is among those who claim to have a relationship with The Master… I often sit and wonder how He sees it, after everything He did to free us from the bondage of sin that we were all under at one time in our lives… If it breaks MY heart, you can rest assured it breaks His.
One hundred religious persons knit into unity by careful organization do not constitute a unified church any more than eleven dead men make a football team. The first requisite is life, always.
Whatever disunites man from God, also disunites man from man.
God has blessed each and every person walking this earth with amazing talents (Proverbs 22:29; 1 Corinthians 12:5-6; Ephesians 2:10 and many other scriptures). In fact, commonly recognised inventor of the electric light bulb, Thomas A. Edison is on record as having said that “If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves.”
We all know that this is true and YOU know that YOU have received your share. There are things that you LOVE to do, and things that you are really good at.
If you are trying to develop a business and have things to show for your talent and are looking for an Internet presence and either don’t have the resources or the know how of how to do it – this page is for you.
There is no charge, the Paul Project does not want to make any money from you. Send me your information and contact details and I will gladly circulate your information and news about your products to my subscribers and obviously anyone who comes to this website.
“Your talent is God’s gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to God.”
“When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, ‘I used everything you gave me’.”
HELPING PEOPLE FIND WORK
I know personally what it is like to walk the streets of more than one city looking for work. In my lifetime I have walked the streets of a city looking for work to the point of wearing the soles of my shoes right through and actually walking on socked feet, but keeping the pretense that my shoes are perfect. Old, but in perfect condition. I have stood on the street corners selling sandwiches that I have made at home. My ex-wife from my first marriage had to borrow money from her employers on more than one occasion so that we could buy food. So I know only too well what it is like to be the ‘breadwinner’, but unable through no apparent fault of your own to ‘win’ any ‘bread’, or to bring home any bacon…
Feel free to send me your CV if you are looking for work and I will place it here for circulation and hopeful download among my subscribers…
There is no charge for this on either side.
If you are an employer and you find someone here who you can help, and who in furn can help you, may Precious Father God bless you both as you do.
But even with the inspiration of others, it’s understandable that we sometimes think the world’s problems are so big that we can do little to help. On our own, we cannot end wars or wipe out injustice, but the cumulative impact of thousands of small acts of kindness can be bigger than we imagine.

God loves with a great love the man whose heart is bursting with a passion for the impossible

IMAGINE A CITY...
Where the drug problem no longer exists, where crime is at an all time low, where women are safe and rape is a thing of the past…
Where the employment figures are at an all time national low, and there are no fatherless children… As believers in Yeshua, it is well within our grasp.
Imagine a city where marriage is sacred and there are hardly ever any children born out of wedlock, where people actually know who their neighbours are and often go to church together…
A city where people are true to each other because they are true to Christ, Who died that this might be so.
It is NOT beyond the realms of impossibility – for those who can believe the miracle of Christ and reach for the impossible!
