Peter and I served God together for close on 40 years, establishing and building Jesus Alive Ministries (now Jesus Alive Gospel Outreach) with an absolute passion and dedication to win the lost and equip the church for effective evangelism. God has been with us, as have you, in leading more than 12 million people in the prayer of salvation, many of whom, I am sure, are in heaven celebrating with Peter today!
Peter Pretorius was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. He recounts his childhood—a “riches to rags” story set in South Africa’s apartheid era. The injustices he witnessed would greatly influence him later in life when his father’s brush with death set Peter on a transformational path to salvation.
Jesus Alive Gospel Outreach has faithfully taken the Gospel to rural Africa for the past 35 years. Staying true to our vision of “going where others will not go and reaching the unreached where they are”, we now also take the Gospel to prisons in Kenya.
We have an incredible opportunity that cannot be missed. After the amazing responses and life-changing testimonies in two prisons, the Commissioner General of Prisons in Kenya has requested that we introduce our Christian Discipleship Programme (CDP) Teaching centres into 119 prisons in Kenya!
