Carmen Potgieter

South Africa Board Representative, Treasurer and Lesson Editor

Carmen has been married for 30 years, is a pharmacist and has two grown daughters. She is passionate about studying and teaching others God's Word. She also helps to edit lessons and cross check the various quotations from Scripture to be correct.

In her own words: "I absolutely believe in the sanctity of marriage and that marriage is for life. Therefore, I felt it important to get involved with Genesis Design, because it teaches from a completely Biblical perspective about manhood, womanhood, sexuality and marriage. It also teaches the skills required to make right and responsible choices for godly single lives and marriages that honour God. I share in the vision of Genesis Design to teach God’s perfect design for mankind as laid out in Genesis 1-3; but most importantly, to teach about the redemptive work of Jesus Christ, no matter your past."

Jos Holtzhausen

Global Coordinator

Jos studied to be a mechanical engineer. He began his fulltime ministry with Youth for Christ in South Africa in 1975. Together with his wife Sylvia, they then founded Youth for Christ in Namibia and raised their two daughters there. He then became the founder of Christ’s Hope International and also served in various international leadership roles with other ministries. One of the many international leadership roles he served in was as the Corresponding Secretary for the Billy Graham Organisation where he was responsible for arranging different delegations to international conferences like Amsterdam ’86 and 2000. In May 2019, Jos and Sylvia, founded Genesis Design as a standalone international ministry. “My desire is to see Genesis Design taught to every person, because I have seen first-hand how this Biblical truth has transformed the lives of many, irrespective of their age.”

He was drawn to Genesis Design's Biblically-based and straightforward message and the hope Genesis Design's teachings will reverse counter-trends in today's world and restore God's plan for sexuality to the masses.

Robert Metz


German Board of Directors

Robert is married to Alicia and they have a daughter. He has just completed his studies as a lawyer and is awaiting an appointment by the German justice department. “The Biblical foundations and understanding of manhood, womanhood, sexuality and marriage are essential for followers of Christ; and one of the most neglected aspects for a good and blessed family and society in our days - especially in the developed countries of the world. Genesis Design proclaims God’s way regarding these important Biblical Truth Foundations that go hand in hand with presenting the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.”
