Carlo, Morne and Brad are the 3 person Grace2Learn residency team. At LHOTL (The last house on the left) they do life together as they figure out together what it means to be disciples of Jesus.
They all also disciple one other person outside of the residency, taking them on the same learning journey.

The residency is located in Mitchell’s Plain, Cape Town. The location of the residency is meant to be a “place of peace” situated within a community plagued with gangsterism and drugs. The residency shows the residents as well as the broader community, that Mitchell’s Plain is also “plagued” with many people of God, who as the greater body of Christ, have a plethora of skills, talents and giftings. Together we are reimagining and living out what this often labeled “under-resourced community” can actually be, that is, a well-resourced community, no longer dependent on any external communities for development.
From here, residents move on to bigger and better things from a stable platform. Some decide to stay to be part of the Grace2Learn team! Others from around the world, see what we doing and want to come alongside us in a residency type of way. Our residency is the melting pot for all of this!
