Pastors Deon and Charmaine got married early in 1989 and they have three boys Michael (oldest) and twins Jacques and Stephen. The whole family have been full time on the road since 1994. They have given up their home and their personal lives for the sake of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As the scripture says "as for me and my house we will serve the Lord". Pastor Deon has been in the ministry since September 1990, just three days after he and Charmaine accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. Pastor Deon grew up in the streets of Johannesburg in a very rough neighborhood called Hillbrow. Being involved with gangs, drinking alcohol, smoking and fighting he never had the opportunity to go to church. His parents didn't go to church or even belonged to a church and therefore Deon had no religious background or Christian knowledge at all. Before his salvation Deon was diagnosed with an incurable skin disease. There were no doctors that could help him.
