On July 25, 1993, at the St. James Church in Cape Town, South Africa, Pastor van Wyk’s belief in his Christian duty to protect the innocent, vulnerable and oppressed led him to single-handedly return fire in the midst of a terrorist attack – the day that would become known for the St. James Massacre. Armed with only a 38 revolver, Pastor Charl returned fire as a group of communists armed with automatic rifles were attending to kill every man, woman and child in the church. While they murdered eleven and wounded dozens more, Pastor Charl’s actions saved dozens of people from death.
The story of how God led Charl to forgive and pursue reconciliation with his attackers is captured in his best-selling book, “Shooting Back – The Right and Duty of Self-defense.”
Admission is free. Pastor van Wyk will have books available to sign, and/or donations would be accepted by Camp Constitution toward the Speaker Bureau, or Pastor van Wyk for his ministry work in Stone Hill, a squatter camp outside of Cape Town, South Africa.
