KARLINE BOTHA

BEULAH'S FAMILY WORKER
  Elders & Deacons

Karline began her future ministry as the Beulah Family Worker in April 2020, after being a teacher for twenty years.  She graduated from Potchefstroom University for Christian Higher Education in 2000 and has taught in London, Johannesburg, Port Elizabeth and Bexhill.  She is currently following a training course with Spurgeon College.
 
Karline passionately believes that God was preparing her all along for this current position.  God led them to Bexhill and more specifically to Beulah to be an active part of this church family and be willing vessels for God’s love in their spiritual home.  She feels it is her honour and privilege to serve God through Beulah and the wider community.
 
Karline has been married for 16 years to Braam, who is part of the worship team.  He joins her in being an active part of our church family.  They have 3 sons, Chris, Braam and Harry and they enjoy taking long walks, swimming in the sea and having BBQs.
 
  Beulah is also served by a team of elected Elders and Deacons who take special responsibility for specific areas of church life.
