We've visited over 30 countries and logged as many mission trips! We are proud to be career (volunteer) missionaries. We currently serve YWAM Muizenberg and we view Cape Town as our mission field as we interact with leaders, pastors, parents, academics, township residents, and youth. We are also passionate about comissioning Africans as bona-fide international missionaries!
Not gonna lie...we adore our kids! Who doesn't? But in a job where we are 'on call' 24/7 (especially evenings, weekends and holidays), investing our love, time and energy into our kids is part of our ministry and calling. They attend LSFM township church with us and attend local schools. You can find out more about them and our family here!

As we invest in the healthy marriages of future ministry leaders, we're making a local and global impact!

We both have pre-misisons teaching backgrounds and have since taught or lectured in international YWAM schools, Acadmeic, Evangelical and Misisonary conferences, as well as leadership seminars and campus ministries. Deb's teaching focuses on Ancient Studeis and Cross-cultural issues. Gabriel specializes in Biblical teaching, preaching, and African ministry leadership.
South Africa is known for its natural beauty and emeging economy, but 65% of South Africans live in urban townships or squatter camps where poverty, HIV, crime, and broken homes sabotage development opportunities. We are priviledged to serve township residents as we encourage and empower them to break emotional and financial poverty cycles for themselves and their children.
