John and Bev were born in Zimbabwe. They were actively involved in their home church in Bulawayo when they received the call of God to fulltime ministry. John underwent pastoral training at Elim Bible College from 1981 - 1983. Returning to Bulawayo at the end of 1983, where he served as assistant pastor. In early November 1984, God supernaturally led John and Bev to Bonaero Park. The church has experienced steady growth until the present time. In 1993 John received a vision to become a part of the revival in the United Kingdom and to build bridges back to South Africa. Since then the ministry has extended to England, Ireland, Wales, America, Egypt, Holland, Zimbabwe and with invites to many more countries.
As a result of several prophetic words concerning television ministry, Pastor John began broadcasting on the Spirit Word Channel almost from its launch. He had an immediate witness with the vision of the channel. From this our program, 'Outrageous Grace' was launched.
