Come and Join!

We want to invite you to join the Iris Global Discipleship and Missions School called “The Father’s House” that was created to “train up the Pauls and Peters of today, raised up to cause trouble around the earth” [as prophesied by David Wagner Feb. 2013].

In a vibrant, active yet nurturing family environment full of adventure on a working farm at the foot of the majestic Langeberg Mountains near a town called Robertson in the Western Cape, South Africa, we want to equip and train anointed and Bible-based disciple-makers and missionaries, fearless and passionate laid-down lovers, fully Spirit-empowered and grounded in their identity in Christ, and released in their God-given calling to impact the world by believing for the multitudes and stopping for the one!


Overview 4 Weeks Intensive Training

Come and participate in our Father’s House Discipleship School based on the principles of Isaiah 61.

“The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners…” ~Isaiah 61:1

Attending Harvest School is not a prerequisite for this school.

Testimonies From Students

“This school carries such a strong culture of honour that allows grace to let go of who I am not, and step into who I am. It has empowered me to believe in who God says I am and encouraged me to step into what God has prepared for me. It also modelled what a Kingdom family should be like, to me.”

— Bethany, USA


“This school really helped me to get back on track; turning back to my first love and returning to the first works. I now feel more passionate being called as a missionary, and I feel I can do so much more. The school really meant a lot to me.”

— Florina, South Africa


“I have been healed of fear of man, and I have more confidence in my identity in Christ as well as confidence in hearing God’s voice. I loved learning about how to see Jesus in all Scripture speaking to me personally, and also about dream interpretation.”

— Stuart, USA


“The school changed my mind and broke through the traditions with which I grew up in the church in Egypt. After 9 years on the mission field, I had a problem with feeling safe and trusting people. During the school God did a miracle and restored my trust in being part of and feeling safe with His family. I was so blessed by God’s visitations during the school and to feel and experience the presence of the Holy Spirit and of angels.”

— Angie, Egypt


“This time has been by far the best experience in my life! I have been healed of so much pain and hurt from the past and have grown in patience, community living and how to function in the Body. This place has been chosen by God to mould the next generation of leaders in the Kingdom for ministry, missions and evangelism.”

— Russell, Scotland


“This school was a big life-experience! I learnt so much about God as a loving Father and His perspective of family and about my place in family. I now have more foundation in my faith and God helped me to fall in love with His Word, enlightened by the Holy Spirit. Also going into the village and meeting the loving people and children of South Africa, and seeing their needs, gave me a bigger heart for this place, and opened my eyes for the big harvest that God wants to bring in. It is surely a life-changing and encouraging place that has eternal worth!”

— Karen, The Netherlands


“Being at the Father’s House has reignited in me intimacy to the Father’s heart – a place of rest and complete acceptance. At the same time I discovered my calling and understood how my Creator designed me to fulfil that. I am so thankful for His love – it is indeed better that life! Give thanks to the Lord for His love endures forever!”

— Genevieve, Singapore


“I feel so fulfilled by the school, because it truly was beautiful with such a well-rounded balance of worship, Spirit-led teaching, pastoring, outreach, adventures, deep relationships, relaxation and family fun. There has been such a wealth of teaching and sharing, exhortation and activations, that I am so grateful to God for allowing me to do the school and giving me strength and grace to participate in all the aspects.”

— Pippa, UK


“The love, the fellowship, the worship and teaching at the Father’s House will forever enrich my future ministry, for all eternity. If you want to experience the living heart of God, this is the place you want to be!”

— Susan, USA
