Freddie & Esperanza Steenkamp

We have been in full-time ministry for 31 years are currently the visionary leaders of a multi-cultural church assembly in Nelspruit Mpumalanga, South Africa. We often use the slogan to sum up our heart: “Loving the church, blessing the nations!”

We have a passion for the nations and have been in partnership with World Mission Centre since 2011. The Live School ministry inspired me to connect with Russian church leaders to mobilize them and their local churches to reach unreached people groups not only in Russia but to many countries of the world!

South Africa and Russia are both a part of the BRICS partnership of countries, and, as such, there is a great openness for South Africans to visit and do business in Russia. This is a privilege many other nationalities have never had. We have formed partnerships with Russian, Siberian, Belarusian, Latvian, and Armenian churches to reach and disciple unreached communities with the good news of the gospel!

I believe Live School is one of the most powerful and practical tools to reach and teach believers in the small villages of Russia who have a powerful part to play in the great commission but who are often forgotten and left behind by the global church.

Come and join us in this adventure and experience firsthand the fulfillment of Hudson Taylor’s prophetic word spoken over every Christian in the Russian world!

A Northern Country

In the picture you will see one of the three churches planted in a small village in the country I cannot mention that was previously part of the Former Soviet Union. The dedication of the people in this country and especially the church we work with is amazing! (Author: Hennie, CIS region)
