Taking the Gospel to the Poor

About Us

In 1979 Peter Pretorius, an affluent South African tobacco farmer, and his wife Ann came to the Lord after witnessing the dramatic healing of Peter’s father. Peter and Ann immediately began to passionately share the Gospel wherever they could. Within just three years, in October 1982, the ministry was founded, officially registered in 1983 in South Africa and began with Gospel Outreaches in rural town halls.
