Prophet Samuel Radebe took to the centre of the pitch at Johannesburg's FNB Stadium for an in-the-round Good Friday event from the Revelation Church of God.

Worship events in Africa can often be on the grandest of scales. It is not unusual for tens of thousands of people to gather to hear high-profile preachers or worship bands. This can lead to a huge challenge for a house of worship's technical team, particularly if the service takes place away from its usual venue.

Running is in Brian’s family, it’s what his brothers and uncles do, and the sport he has participated in for the past 27 years. He trains every day, twice a day in fact when he is not working.

West coast-born Jaques Fouche is the latest addition to the Cape Town branch's Sales team, but it has been quite a journey to get to where he is now.

On completing his schooling, he moved to Cape Town and took on a position in market research whilst trying to decide what career path to embark on. "At that tender age, I had no clear vision of the path I wanted to take in life." he muses. "The only thing I knew for sure was that I really like being around people and discovering what makes them tick."The digital age was booming and his involvement in research meant that he got to work very closely with big corporates determining what the market's technological needs were - a background that proved very useful when he joined Gearhouse."
