George Whitefield College is named after the great English evangelist and preacher of the 18th century evangelical revival. It was his passion for evangelism and strong Bible-based theological preaching that the GWC founders desired to honour in naming the College after him. The College was founded in 1989, the product of the vision of Bishops Dudley Foord and Joe Bell, successive Presiding Bishops of the Church of England in Southern Africa. Their vision was for a college that would ground people thoroughly in God’s word, that they might be faithful and impassioned stewards of its message.
David Broughton Knox came to South Africa – from Sydney, Australia – in 1989 to establish George Whitefield College and be its first principal.
Arising from his conviction that Christian ministers are primarily teachers of the Word of God, he laid the foundations of a college that would have as the focal point of its study program the “whole counsel of God”. He believed that men and women who knew God and understood his will would be faithful in imparting this saving truth to others.
