Since the early 90’s, PEN have already been playing a role in our city center community.
PEN was founded in 1992. Back then a lot of white families still resided in the city center, mostly in Schubartpark and surrounding flats. With the influx of multi racial families to the city center, it changed the city center culture in the sense that the traditional DRC Bosman Street asked whether the church is still relevant in terms of delivering much needed services to the community. This is where PEN left its first footprint.
Today, 25 years later, PEN serves the city center community through spiritual outreach programs to young and old. About 18 programs render services to our communities within the following themes: Provision of basic needs, Education, Health, Christian Community & Discipleship, Social & Emotional Wellbeing, Citizen’s Rights, Enterprise Coaching & Skills Development and Access to Technology. Some of PEN’s facilities includes a community center, medical center, homes of safety and other much needed programs to name only a few. PEN currently employ 125 full time personnel, each with a burning desire to serve our community living in the city centre.
