In an effort to address the moral decline of teenagers in recent times, Trinityhouse Palm Lakes recently called on Ballito-based church, Groundbreakers, to conduct a two-day life empowerment workshop for its pupils.

The aim of the event was to prepare high school pupils to cope with various life challenges that confront teenagers in the world today.

Numerous sessions were presented over the two-day period. Sessions addressed topics relevant to teen challenges including how to set proper goals and standards for their lives, how establish accurate and wholesome relationships, how to handle sexual pressures, how to filter main stream media and how to identify one’s gifts and competencies for career planning.
Pupils were given a broader perspective on the role and function they play in society and the contribution they can make to the future of South Africa and the world at large.

Heading up the team of facilitators from Groundbreakers was their senior pastor Nel Sewraj.

He was accompanied by Michelle Sewraj, assistant pastor of Groundbreakers, and founder of the life empowerment NGO called NationBuilders.

Sipho Zungu, the youth and worship leader of Groundbreakers also facilitated some sessions.

Speaking on behalf of Trinityhouse Julie Arthur said:

“This life skills workshop is very important to our children. The holidays and society itself offers many choices to our children. Most of these choices are not of a wholesome nature.

“After attending this workshop, I firmly believe that our children are better equipped for whatever they may face. Thank you Pastor Nel and Groundbreakers.”

Groundbreakers is available to assist schools and other organisations with life empowerment and moral regeneration programmes.

They can be contacted via their website at or 032 946 3331.
