Meet the Ignite Team

June
Founder and President

Joined Ignite in 2010

My passion is to mentor people by being an example in daily living, through encouragement and teaching, and regardless of age. I love seeing leaders rise up who know that God has a plan and purpose for their life and dare to walk it out boldly. Leaders who are challenged to raise the standard around them and live a life of destiny. One of the greatest gifts I have experienced after helping a person realize who God created them to be; was watching as they walked out that truth in their life- incredible.

For relaxation and fun I love to spend time outdoors, writing, and enjoy all types of creative and “artsy” outlets.

Joined Ignite in 2010

A passion for the  mission and vision of Ignite South Africa has lead Busisiwe to accept the position of Executive Director. Previously she was our Flashpoint Director for many years excelling both in her role, and leadership.  In addition to her work in the schools, she and her husband pastor a church in Mmakwane.

Her favorite thing? “I love teaching youth the Word of God so they can learn who He is and what His will is, I love what I am doing!”

Amanda

Amanda
Operations Director

Joined Ignite in 2010

I have a heart to propel people to where God is leading them – that’s my passion.  I’ve learned to walk in God’s footsteps and His peace throughout the years after teaching in the schools, training coaches, and now working behind the scenes. I also believe that in speaking life to those you lead, it brings up leaders who are confident in what they do as the Bible teaches that “death and life are in the power of the tongue.”  God continues to leave me in awe of what He has in store for me.

I enjoy traveling, painting, reading, and spending time outdoors.
