Charl van wyk is a Christian missionary, home-school father, author and activist in Africa.
His belief in his Christian duty to protect the innocent, vulnerable and oppressed led him to single-handedly return fire in the midst of a terrorist attack, saving many lives!
The story of how God led Charl to forgive and pursue reconciliation with his attackers is captured in his best-selling book, Shooting Back – The Right and Duty of Self-defense.
Now he is engaged in a new war - a battle to establish kingdom-focused covenant communities in Southern Africa.
His pro-active stance on educating the Church and renewing minds with a Biblical worldview drives him to see communities changed through the Gospel, discipleship and community development.
