Tom was born in Scotland and moved to South Africa as a 14 year-old boy with his parents. He and his South African wife Barbara were saved in December 1976 shortly before he graduated from university with a master’s degree in Chemistry in 1977. He was appointed worship pastor of Rhema Bible Church in Johannesburg and experienced an amazing move of God from 1982 -1987, leading worship to thousands of people every week, as well as being a successful recording artist with Integrity Music.
In 1983 Tom had an unusual encounter with the Lord in his study for about forty minutes where the vision of Psalmody International was birthed. God told him to write and develop material that would help equip the church to understand worship as a way of life. The material found its way into many denominations with thousands of people impacted by the teaching in over 40 nations since that time.
In 2002 Tom and his family moved to Sydney to pioneer a Sydney Life Church that they still pastor today, and also travels internationally to take the vision of worship lifestyle to the nations.
He has a sense of urgency to teach worship as a way of life and believes that Jesus will return for a people who are passionately in love with Him. “The vision is burning stronger than ever to raise up this generation as worshipers”, said Tom. He carries a prophetic word for the church that is powerfully anointed and undeniably relevant to all believers for the times in which we live.
His ministry has been described as a prophetic anointing that gives a glimpse of the revived Church and what we can expect just before the return of the Lord.
Rebecca is co-founder of Christian Harvest International and Strategic Prayer Action Network (SPAN).
From the time she was young girl, Rebecca felt a drawing of the Lord that she would be used by Him. Her mother used to tell Rebecca she was blessed and her father loved to sing a son entitled Far Away Places to she and her sister when they were small girls. Little did her parents know they were speaking her destiny into her heart and mind even from the time she was a young child.
In a prayer time in 1990 she felt a strong presence of the Spirit in which she was overcome. During this time the Lord showed her a vision of thousands and thousands of souls from many nations. He challenged her saying, Becca, will you be accountable for the souls I have assigned to you? Will you reach them for Me? Her heart captivated by this experience, she seriously responded to the mandate of the Lord to the nations. Since this Kingdom encounter, her passion has been seeing the lands of the world impacted for the Glory of God and reaching people with the gospel and setting the captive free. Her heart cry has become, Lord give me the nations. . As a result, prophecy, prophetic intercession, transformational spiritual warfare prayer, spiritual mapping, deliverance and teaching the word of God extensively in the many lands of the earth are the main thrusts of Christian Harvest.
Over the past 24 years, she has ministered in and participated and led in spiritual warfare prayer journeys to 34 countries such as Egypt, Nepal, Italy, Turkey, Russia, Ukraine, Ireland, Spain, China, and to many cities and locations throughout the United States in which measurable breakthrough of transformation have been realized.
Having a heart for lost souls, Rebecca has seen many saved and set free. She ministers in transparency from her personal experiences of overcoming fear, depression, rebellion and anger into freedom. She is committed to equipping in scriptural truths on how to live an overcoming life of purpose, fulfillment and destiny. And to equip people and churches to have a Jesus captivated and authoritative prayer life in which change and transformation are realized.
While she loves to travel the world and partner with the Lord in touching people’s lives, Rebecca’s favorite and most cherished times are with her husband Greg and their three beautiful daughters: Kendall, Rebecca and Katie. They reside in Colorado Springs, CO and are members of Freedom Church.
Rebecca has been a guest on TBN, Its Supernatural, God Knows and the Harvest Show. She has written for publications such as Charisma, Pray! Magazine and Spirit-Led Woman.
