Eddie Albertyn lives in Jeffreys Bay in the Eastern Cape; he runs a Conveyancing and Tax Attorney’s practice in Humansdorp. He is married to Machrista and has 3 daughters of whom two are already married.  

Eddie is passionate about extending God’s Kingdom in the marketplace.  His vision is to use his God given talents and passion to help professional and businesspeople to discover their calling and maximise it in their daily living.

He is actively involved in leading the Halftime ministry at Victory Christian Church, his local church, in Jeffrey's Bay.  They were the first church in South Africa to host a “Collaborative Day” and the first church to host the “Small Group Curriculum” of “Success to Significance”.

It is of the utmost importance for Eddie to see “Halftimers” walk in an “Unlimited partnership” with their local church or community.

Casparus Johannes (Cassie) Carstens spends his life empowering potential leaders. Driven by a strong conviction that the world should be redeemed, and that God wants to use key influencers to do it, Cassie has founded two international leadership schools: ISLS and ALICT and the Ubabalo life-coaching movement. Reading the book “Halftime” in 1997 played a significant role in helping Cassie to redefine his Life Purpose.


With the permission of Bob Buford, Cassie started Halftime courses in South Africa in 1998 and still values this as one of the most significant Kingdom investments.
As a popular international trainer and speaker Cassie has already travelled to 110 countries of the world to impact leaders.  He enjoys a very blessed marriage of 43 years with Jenny and they have 3 children: Almarie(39)– mother of my precious grandchildren (Christiaan, Anja, Reghardt) and wife of Stefan, George(36) and Jenni(33), and an adopted daughter, Abongile(30).  

The International Sport Leadership School (ISLS) is in existence since 1999 where Cassie has to date trained leaders from 140 countries. The vast network that this ‘world-wide-web-of-new-generation-leadership’ has formed is maintained and empowered to the extent that this network now trains more than 100 000 leaders each year. As chaplain of the 1995 South African Rugby World Cup winning team that was championed by the former president, Nelson Mandela, he has seen first-hand how societal and cultural reconciliation and transformation can materialise through the vehicle of sport.
The African Leadership Institute for Community Transformation (ALICT) has now trained leaders from more than 110 countries since its inception in 2004. This Institute trains its leaders to bring about holistic Transformation by becoming social change agents who usher in the Kingdom of God in all spheres of society.

Ubabalo eAfrica, now active in more than 140 nations, is a sport-based discipleship concept that uses sport as a microcosm of life to instil sound life values. This is the key to “paradigm shift” coaching into whole life coaching.

Cassie is also the founder of The World Needs A Father. The World Needs A Father started in 2011 and is a global movement of fathers committed to building unbreakable families and healthy communities. TWNAF is active in 95 countries and growing every day. Cassie’s primary focus has been on addressing the global pandemic of fatherlessness, in doing so started the movement now known as The World Needs A Father and authored an eponymous book, which thoroughly addresses the issue of fatherlessness
As an international speaker, trainer and strategist, Cassie believes that leaders determine success and that the right values ensure the future.



Graham Power, is the founder and Chairman of the Power Group of companies, formed in 1983.  Graham accepted Christ as his saviour in 1999 – an event that transformed his own life, his family, and his business. He is married to Lauren and they have three children and five grandchildren and lives in Somerset West.

Today the Power Group is one of Southern Africa’s leaders in civil engineering construction, real estate development and infrastructure. Graham has repurposed his company into a powerful tool for transformation in God’s hands that is impacting his industry, the nation and even the world. Please visit for more information.

In 2001 Graham was the visionary leader who initiated a gathering in Cape Town that saw 45 000 Christians fill Newlands Stadium to pray for the needs of their nation. Today this movement has become the largest prayer gathering in recorded history, where people from every country in the world participate annually in the Global Day of Prayer on Pentecost Sunday.  Please visit for more information.

Graham is also the founder of the Unashamedly Ethical Campaign. This campaign promotes values, ethics, and clean living across all sectors of society.  This campaign is currently sweeping South Africa and is bringing about a tangible change to the lives of individuals, and even whole companies. Please visit for more information.

Along with Diane Vermooten, Graham is the author of the book “Not by Might, Nor by Power” which tells the remarkable story of the growth of the Global Day of Prayer and the birth of Unashamedly Ethical. His second book was written with Dr Dion Forster “Transform your work life:  Turn your ordinary day into an extraordinary calling”.
Graham is the first to say that God deserves all the Glory and the Honour for this miraculous work. Truly, the stories of the Global Day of Prayer and Unashamedly Ethical are not of one man’s determination, neither are they about mighty global organizations, they are a testimony to God’s Power and Grace!
