Neill and Jenny Jakins both confessed Jesus as Saviour and Lord towards the end of 1970 in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. In 1977 Neill resigned from his executive position in a nationwide company and they, together with their two children, Grant and Tracy, ministered as missionaries to the indigenous people of the Transkei.
In 1980 they were led to pioneer a multi-racial church in Cape Town, South Africa. A 300-seater movie house was first hired and then purchased. When that was outgrown, additional property was purchased and the auditorium extended to seat 800 plus. The adjoining property was also secured as an administration block. Besides an effective children`s, youth and family ministry, the Fellowship operated a 3 year Word School and reached out into the city-wide community by operating a full day 80 child day-care center, hospital visitation teams, 24 hour telephone crisis counseling, ministry to prostitutes and a food programme to the underprivileged. Over the years many of the folk who were saved, delivered, filled, trained and equipped for ministry in the Kingdom have been sent by the Lord to live and minister among the nations on 3 continents. In 1998 the Lord directed Neill and Jenny to hand over the responsibility of the Fellowship to their associate pastor, Marius Viljoen, whom they had discipled for 15 years. The transition took a year. Their mandate from the Lord was to go to the nations and challenge Gods people to fulfill their awesome potential and destiny in Christ. In obedience to the call, they have been traveling since then to the Body of Christ world-wide. Over the last 17 years they have ministered the love of Christ in 27 nations on all continents. Their purpose and destiny in Christ is to help others find theirs.
