Each of our individual ministries is currently autonomous from the others, and each ministry has its own Board of Trustees.
Transkei Victory Christian Ministries (TVCM) is registered with the South African government as a non-profit trust. Based on regulations, it is governed by a minimum of five trustees. The trustees change on a regular bases. We try to maintain that the majority of the Board of Trustees be local Xhosa leaders. Normally we maintain a couple of ex-patriot (from the States) on the board to give objective input. Pastor James Schorr from the States is a long standing board member and comes to the mission annually to review how the ministry is doing. TVCM is accountable to this governing Board of Trustees.
African New Life Ministries (ANLM) is a legal entity that is registered by the South African government as a non-profit trust. It is governed by a Board of Trustees. Kelly is the only non-Xhosa on the Board. In addition to being governed by the Board, it also has to submit to govern ment regulations. ANLM is accountable to the Lord and the Board of Trustees.
Gatyana Bible College (GBC) is a non-profit legal entity that is governed by a Board of Trustees. The Board is generally a mix of Americans and Xhosa Christian leaders. The majority of the Board are native African Bible scholars. Accordingly, GBC is submitted to the direction and authority of the Board. The GBC is not under the educational authority of SAQA, as GBC does not charge student fees for instruction.
Grace Children’s Shelter is a registered NGO. It is governed by a Board of Directors. Soon after the opening of the Shelter, Kelly Kosky transferred all authority to the local leaders, who now govern this ministry. Even though Kelly is the founder of this ministry and serves to strengthen the ministry, he is not currently in a role of authority.
Southern Cross Ministries (SCM) is a registered non-profit organization in South Africa and also in the United States. It was founded by Kelly Kosky and Allen Kech, who currently serves with others on the governing Board. The ministry is submitted to this Board of Directors.
African Christian Ministries (ACM) is registered as a Section 21 corporation under the regulations of South Africa. It is governed by a minimum of seven non-related members who have full authority over ACM. The ministry is also a registered non-profit organization and maintains compliance with the South African Revenue Service.
Kelly Kosky and the ministries that are under his supervision are all accountable to World Outreach Ministries (WOM), a non-profit organization in the United States. It is recognized as a non-profit organization under the Internal Revenue Service regulation 501(c )(3). Kelly Kosky and the relating ministries are financially fully submitted to WOM for oversight and accountability. WOM continually reviews the appropriations of funds to insure that the funds are disbursed appropriately within the structure of the ministry. If for any reason Kelly Kosky or the ministries fails to comply with the financial accountably of WOM, they will directly address any financial problems.
Kelly Kosky has voluntarily surrounded himself with men that he remains fully accountable to. Most of the men who give Kelly oversight have been mentoring Kelly for many years. Based on years of relationship, they maintain the right to speak directly to Kelly and insist that he comply with their instruction.
In addition to this accountability, Kelly Kosky remains submitted to pastor James Schorr in California, who has been in relationship with the Koskys for over 35 years. Pastor Jim has the authority to speak honestly and openly with both Kelly and Kathy, should the need arise. Pastor Schorr visits Africa on an annual basis to monitor and assess the health of both the ministries and the Koskys.
