WHO AM I?
Hi, I'm Caleb. Born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa. My life's circumstances have granted me the privilege of being put into significant leadership positions at a young age.
I grew up travelling to Zimbabwe for outreach almost every school holiday (a family initiative for over 40 years). From a young age my father (an entrepreneur and property developer) started teaching me about the business world. At age 13 my father gave me a capital investment of $2000 to start a small camera equipment importing business. This small business thrived and sparked a new way of thinking for me. Growing up in a family who taught me that leadership finds its roots in serving, while at the same time showing immense confidence and belief in me as a young leader, was an invaluable gift.
For my later teenage years, I attended Fairmont High School where I met Kathleen (my wife) in grade 10. In grade 12, Kathleen and I were elected Head Boy and Head Girl of our school (School President) and by the age of 21 we were married. When I left high school, I pioneered a youth ministry in our local church and served as the youth pastor. These were some of the most formative years in my leadership journey. Four years later I shifted roles and became executive pastor of our local church. At this point I began formal studies in theology and leadership through an organization called Advance.
I am a passionate charismatic leader and public speaker. I believe in the power of clear communication. I believe in working hard while remaining content. I believe in excellence while remaining gracious. The most valuable commodity in my life is time. My biggest burdens are unrealized leadership potential and people in the world asking the question: 'What on earth am I here for?' My life's calling is to raise leaders and plant churches.
