The Legacy Project



Recently I was approached by The Legacy Project to share my thoughts and experiences regarding personal achievement. The questions were quite challenging and included  things such as what I consider to be characteristics of success, principles I live by, and even the meaning of life! The final question concerned the legacy I would like to leave and my answer was:

I would like to leave behind me people, especially young men and women, who are equipped and motivated to fulfill God’s call on their lives as productive citizens of our nation. I would also like to leave a repository of writings to help them on their life journey.
I do hope that the repository I am constantly adding to at goes some way in fulfilling this!

About Me

My name is Christopher Peppler and I was born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1947. While working in the financial sector I achieved a number of business qualifications from the Institute of Bankers, Damelin Management School, and The University of the Witwatersrand Business School. After over 20 years as a banker, I followed God’s calling and joined the ministry full time. After becoming a pastor of what is now a quite considerable church, I  earned an undergraduate theological qualification from the Baptist Theological College of Southern Africa and post-graduate degrees from two United States institutions. I was also awarded the Doctor of Theology in Systematic Theology from the University of Zululand in 2000.

Four years before that I established the South African Theological Seminary (SATS), which today is represented in over 70 countries and has more than 2 500 active students enrolled with it. I presently play an role supervising Masters and Doctoral students.

I am a passionate champion of the Christocentric or Christ-centred Principle, an approach to biblical interpretation and theological construction that emphasises the centrality of Jesus

I have been happily married to Patricia since the age of 20, have two children, Lance and Karen, a daughter-in-law Tracey, and granddaughters Jessica and Kirsten. I have now retired from both church and seminary leadership and devote my time to writing, discipling, and the classical guitar.
