The communication of truth with clarity is Stephen’s passion, which is reflected in his practical, insightful and equipping teaching style.

He was the Founding Principal of LIFE Church College, where he is still teaches, as well as being a guest lecturer at a number of Bible Colleges in Europe. More recently he founded the Building Church Academy, which serves local churches by providing good quality training for people who are unable to attend a full time course.
Stephen’s landmark book Building Church has become a valuable tool for helping church builders across the world and complements his other practical life-enriching titles like Rooting Out Relationship Killers, and Wisdom Wins! His Abundant Life Skills series, which currently has four titles: Battle for the MIND, MONEY Matters, Increasing PEACE, and Bringing the BIBLE to Life are ideal for personal and small group use.

Peter and Ann Pretorius
Peter and his wife Ann head up Joint Aid Management, a Christian humanitarian organisation that is currently feeding around half a million children every school day. Peter also holds huge open air crusades where he has seen literally millions of people decide to follow Jesus, as well as hundreds of thousands being healed by the power of God. Both Peter and Ann have taught many times at Destiny College in recent years.
“Ministering at Destiny College has been a good experience for me. I find the student body very open, thirsty for the Word of God and serious about doing things for the Kingdom of God. I recommend Destiny College as a good, sound foundation in training and preparation for true Christian living and the work of the ministry.”
