Dolf and Firdaus
"Cry aloud, spare not; Lift up your voice like a trumpet" Isaiah 58: 1
When he was five years of age Dolf was already aware of the presence of God in his life. His parents became Followers of Jesus when he was nine. God kept him through His grace, blessed him, trained him and educated him with great love, and he developed in serving the Lord. Yet there can be no increase of maturity in following Jesus without testing and trials. At the beginning of 1991 he even lost his focus on everything except Jesus. Nevertheless, God restored and renewed him, and from 1994 until 1998 God moved him into a new season of church leadership and development in the prophetic and apostolic ministry. At the beginning of 1998 he started travelling as a prophet.
He believes that God is restoring the prophetic ministry to the level He wants it to be in His Kingdom. The text above, Isaiah 58: 1 speaks of lifting your voice like a trumpet. It speaks of a shofar, a prophetic voice and it inspires Dolf to bring a 'prophetic word from the heart of God, that will encourage you to go for change' in your personal live, for a change in the church and in your ideas about church.
Dolf is married to Firdaus. They have two children, both married, four grandchildren and they all live in Vlissingen in The Netherlands.
Dolf is the author of a book called Through the eye of a Prophet. The Kingdom of God is bigger than the church and a progressive change of thinking is very important to bring the church to a higher level of maturity and freedom. In this book Dolf challenges us to focus on Jesus and on expanding the Kingdom of God. Dolf teaches that renewal of our thinking is of utmost importance in order to rise to a higher level of maturity and freedom.
In serving the Church, a prophet has a God-given ability to bring forth a clear unveiling of the Person of Jesus Christ, through the opening of the Word of God, by the Spirit of God. As a prophet Dolf teaches people and this lifts burdens and destroys yokes.
He is involved in:
- Organizing equipping seminars in order to encourage the Body of Christ, to help people to grow toward maturity and to see people function in their gifts 'in the Kingdom of God.'
- Receiving people at home from the Netherlands and abroad.
- Advising leadership and churches. Building individual relationships with local groups and strengthening and imparting to them and their leaders practical instruction and teaching from the heart of God.
- Developments of many new expressions of Church.

Steve and Marilyn
Steve and Marilyn came to Jesus in 1971 through the Jesus People movement. We were sitting on the floor worship and talking about Jesus but did not believe that we were a real church since we did not have a paid pastor, parking lot, programs buildings or problems. After a thirty year journey through much of the good ship Christendom we have arrived back where we started, literally sitting on the floor talking with people about Jesus.
We appreciate much diversity in expression of Christian community but our focus has become the multiplication of disciple and simple communities in Central Asia. However you view community, church is people and life is relationships. That is the simplicity in which we wish to encourage our friends to walk and we often say, 'Simplicity multiplies while complexity dies'.
We began in Central Asia in one country with one couple and are now encouraging a team of eight apostolic couples in three countries. We do not try to do large conferences or seminars but spend much time sharing hearts and vision with this team. We seek to give them the vision, strategy and tools to do the job that only they can do. God has also given us relationships in Eastern and Western Europe through which we seek to encourage discipleship based in relational integrity and the forming of simple communities."
