Babalwa (38) was born in the beautiful citrus valley of the Sundays River Valley. She completed her school education at the local school in Kirkwood and graduated at PE Technikon, now called the NMMU (Nelson Mandela Metroplolitan University) where she obtained her degree in Public Financial Management. After that she obtained her MDiv at Stellenbosch University and was legitimized in 2008.

At the moment Babalwa is a practicing member at URCSA New Brighton Congregation in Port Elizabeth. She would like to focus on youth ministry and would love to see young people grow closer to God in all aspects of their lives.

She also values family life and regards it as the place where we have to allow God to take charge in order to heal our broken families.

She has good financial experience and worked as Supply Chain Accountant/Manager at Sundays River Valley Municipality. She is also very fond of ballroom dancing, watching inspirational and well researched TV programmes and reading; she is currently reading “Bridge to Haven” by Francine Rivers.
