Stephen developed a strong bitterness against God as he grew into a young man.
In 1960 he became active in terrorism as a communist against the Government of the then Southern Rhodesia. He learned the dreadful skills of sabotage, bombing and destruction.
On one such mission in 1962, Stephen and his gang plotted to blow up a bank when they came upon a large tent. Unbeknown to them, inside a Gospel meeting with thousands of people was taking place. Stephen and his fellow terrorists decided that they would throw their bombs into the tent and shoot anyone who tried to escape.
God however, had very different plans.

Their aim is to be the voice that speaks for the orphans of Moldova, from the smallest child, to the older teen. With the number of human trafficking victims on the rise – including victims of child trafficking – it is more important than ever to give these children a voice. With each voice added to ours, we are able to offer a loving home to more of these innocent children, raising them as our own, in a Christian environment.
Never in the history of this Communist country has there been an advocate for the orphans. For twenty years, this ministry has been a part of the lives of thousands of orphans, providing Christmas gifts, warm coats, food, supplies, heating oil, clean water, and so much more.

Omawumi Michael Efueye, fondly known as Pastor ‘O,’ first answered an altar call on Sunday December 21st 1986, his first wedding anniversary. It would take another six months before he would surrender his life to Christ at a revival meeting to which he was invited.
From this point, it was clear to him and all around him that he had found what he had been looking for all his life, his calling. He became consumed with the things of God and began to devour Biblical spiritual fare with a voracious and seemingly insatiable appetite.
From the charismatic New Estate Baptist Church in Lagos, where he began his Christian walk, he moved to World Missions Outreach (WORMOUT). There he was one of the foundation members and served in many capacities ranging from usher, to Sunday school teacher to deacon. When WORMOUT metamorphosed into Glory Christian Centre, he would later be ordained into the office of a Pastor and would serve as the Assistant to the senior and founding Pastor.
Pastor O is a pastor at heart and has the natural compassion, unction calling and anointing of a father. His hatred of error and inquisitive agile mind underscores his uncompromising addiction to teaching the Word of God. He believes the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ without hypocrisy or dissimulation will make God’s power freely available to the lost and needy in these trying times. His undying passion is that God’s people should behold God’s glory through the undiluted ministry of His word, and that as they do; they in turn become transformed to that-same image. Integrity and humility epitomise his personal and ministry life.
He has been married to his wife Carol for over twenty-five years and they are blessed with two children.

The Foundation is dedicated to helping widows, teenage mothers and single mothers through using the talents they have to activate their business life. Rev.

Betty’s integrity as a highly successful property developer, learning to apply biblical principles and Godly living into every transaction. Her wisdom has allowed the formation of long-term projects and collaborating with secular as well as Christian organisations; she has taught that in following Christ’s guidelines there is room for unrivalled growth and a purer market culture for the next generation.

Pastor Vincent Harper
Pastor Vincent hails from Pietermaritzburg, a city in the province of Kwazulu Natal in South Africa. Pietermaritzburg is an hour from Durban and four and a half hours away from Johannesburg.
He was born on the 23 November 1958, the last born of seven children. He was a secret child because his father was married to someone else and could never acknowledge him as his child. He married the love of his youth, Joan on the 22 November 1979. For the sake of his children, he searched for his father at 38 years of age and after two Sunday afternoon lunches together, they never saw him again until he died.
He was raised in the Methodist church as a nominal Christian and went to church every Sunday but lived his own life outside of church. On the 3rd February 1991, Vincent was born again. From the very first weekend as a born again child of God, he asked the minister to give him something to do and he sent him and his wife to work in the children's church. Their journey and training in ministry had begun. After six months in the children's church, they were sent to work in the youth department. They started with their three children and by the end of the first year, God had grown the youth numerically to 65 born again young people. This was quite strange because the children were saved and their parents were not because this was not the thrust of the message in the church at that time. After three years, Vincent started training as a Methodist local preacher and became a society steward in the church. During his training he was put on the preaching plan around the circuit.
During this time they began experiencing some difficulties doctrinaly and could not get baptised because the church baptises people as babies. After much prayer and soul searching, they realised that they needed to move on so that their relationships would remain. This was a most painful experience as they had been born and raised in that church.
From there they joined a charismatic church called New Zion Christian Fellowship under the leadership of Pastor Russel Toohey. At this church the system was different from where they came from because it was a cell based church. Their training started all over again from cell internship. In six years of training, they served as cell leaders, Zone leaders, deacons, elders and finally after completing a Bible school course the church was running, they were ordained as pastors. They served as part of the associate pastoral team until they were sent to plant a church in Pretoria, South Africa. God prospered the church in all ways. This is where their passion for discipling the nations through church planting was birthed.
