(Many details and confirmations of God’s amazing working in their lives have been excluded in order to keep this pastoral introduction as brief as possible)
Pastors Andrew and Denice Campion are both anointed to operate in the power of the Holy Spirit with miracles, signs and wonders evident in their ministry. The deaf hear, the blind see, the lame walk and people are being saved and delivered as it was in the book of Acts. Their passion is to see the church equipped with God’s Word, God’s Spirit and God’s love so that they can live a real Christ-like life of power to live in the victory Christ paid for us to have. They would say that it is by grace that we are saved, but faith without works is dead. Therefore grace empowers us to live by faith with the resulting evidence that our faith is true.
This pastoral couple was put together by Divine appointment, as prophesied by an international prophetess months before it happened. At a Thursday night prayer meeting in October of 2000, as prophesied, God intervened in their lives to literally put an instant love in them for each other. As they both would tell you, there were no romantic feelings between them until that moment when they looked up at each other and saw the room emptied of the other people that were there. The atmosphere in the room changed and it was like flicking on a light switch… instantly a romantic love was birthed in their spirits for each other at that moment. Three days later, after the Sunday morning service, they went to have coffee at Ramkietjie in Ruimsig. The place was deserted as they pulled into the parking lot and sat talking a while. Suddenly a man walked up to the window and tapped on it. He looked like a gardener dressed in an overall but his eyes looked exactly like bright blue crystals. Pastor Andrew rolled down the window and the man said, “I just want to tell you two that you make a lovely couple” and with that he literally disappeared in front of them! They obviously knew that God had sent them an angel to confirm their relationship and thereafter many signs and confirmations of God’s plans and desires for them as a couple occurred, before and after the marriage. It was obvious that God was putting them together as the prophetic word was confirmed with great accuracy.
Since that time they have travelled abroad to different nations and have ministered in the love and power of God to see God’s people saved; baptised; healed; delivered and filled with the Holy Spirit. They are co-presenters on the weekly POINT DESTINY and WINGS OF BUSINESS Television programme with Dr Ron Kussmaul and Dr Mariette Kussmaul, airing on TBN Africa and CTV on Thursdays at 17h30. Pastor Andrew has his own business as the Lord instructed him to continue in business by prophetic instruction and confirmed it by revealing to him that Paul also worked wherever he spread the gospel until the time that he was imprisoned. Pastor Andrew also ministers at men’s camps called the Bazalwane (Believers) Weekend which is sponsored by the SA-French Outreach, allowing men to pay only R30.00 for a complete weekend every few months, which includes transportation, accommodation and meals. During these powerful weekends the people are ministered to with the Word with demonstrations of healing, and the men are encouraged to be better fathers and husbands. Baptisms in water and the Holy Spirit are standard practise. In fact, all the outreach ministers operating through Spirit Life Ministries are taught to get people filled with the Holy Spirit immediately after their conversion to Christ, whenever possible.
Pastor Denice runs a powerful Ladies Bible Study on Tuesday mornings that helps to equip ladies from various denominational backgrounds with prophetic ministry and life-changing teachings. It is a regular occurrence for there to be demonstrations of the power of God in nearly every meeting these pastors facilitate. Together they have planted two main ministries: The first, called Dwelling Place Ministries which, although small, ran successfully for three years and it only ended because of another Divine intervention… you can read about that by clicking on The History, under the CHURCH section of this website.
In everything they do, Pastors Andrew and Denice desire firstly the will of God. To know God is to love Him, and to grow in Him is to love Him more. To love those God loves is then also an essential part of growing in love for God practically. They believe that demonstrating the love and power of God is practical ministry and, as they like to say, a man with an experience is never at the mercy of a man with an argument. The purpose for them is to HEAR what God is saying and DO what God is doing, and thereby lead people to a personal encounter with God so that they can love Him too… not because of a doctrine, but because they have tasted and seen that He is GOOD.
