IRIS WESTERN CAPE
The IRIS WESTERN CAPE base, nestled in the majestic mountains in South Africa, is a place dedicated to connect with God in the midst of His creation, to rest in His presence, be filled with His peace and fullness and be empowered to run with His joy!
OUR VISION AND MISSION
Our vision is to bring the Kingdom and love of God into every sphere of ministry and area of peoples’ lives by valuing them through the eyes of Jesus, empowering and calling them higher and releasing them into their destinies, so that they can make a Kingdom impact wherever they are and will be in life.
We believe that God wants the living Body of Christ to operate as an anointed corporate body of believers, a family in unity, by impacting the world, setting the captives free, bringing hope and salvation to the lost and the poor and healing to the sick.
Our visionary calling is to minister to people through the Holy Spirit helping them to grasp their freedom and identity in Christ (Galatians 5:1, Isaiah 61) on all levels, spirit, soul and body, so that they can grow to the full stature of the Lord Jesus Christ (Colossians 2:9-10). As a base for the ministry, God lead us to a place from where we can reach out all over the world in order to help people to grow through Scripture and nature (Ps 19). Through fresh Holy Spirit-driven revelation from God’s heart based on His eternal Word, our mission is to help people to find their God-given purpose in life and to take up and to live according to their true identity in Christ.
THE FATHER’S HOUSE DISCIPLESHIP AND MINISTRY SCHOOL
Under the banner of Iris Global, twice a year, during March - May, and October - December we have The Father’s House Discipleship and Ministry Schools of 9 weeks (including an extended outreach) where students from all ages and nationalities come together to become a family and be healed, discipled, and empowered to minister His love and grace to the poor and broken-hearted, and then released to step into their Godly callings.
