Come and Join!

We 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].

Father, I can hear the song You’re singing over me
It’s saying it’s Your desire for Your children to be free!
You look my way, my heart must say:
It's so good to be home, where my Father loves me so
It's so good to be home here with You!
(Written by Jean Du Rand, 2016)


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

Come home to the Father’s house and away with Jesus 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 have a calling 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!

This will be an exciting time to come away with Jesus, the Saviour and Lover of your soul, in a beautiful piece of Nature to have mountain top experiences with the Father, dig deep into the Word, hear His voice, be sensitive to the Holy Spirit, grow in personal development and deep relationships, receive anointed teaching and impartation, be part of a spiritual family, discover you gifts and calling, learn about the elements of faith, missions and disciple-making, and apply it practically by reaching out and ministering to the communities around us.

Some words that best describe the atmosphere that we have created on our farm and for this school are: Family, Identity, Adventure, Freedom, Scripture and Nature, Fellowship, Fullness, Presence, Intimacy, Deep Connections, Revelation, Discernment, Destiny and Calling, Worship and Intercession, Receiving and Pouring out His Love to others.

There will also be opportunity to go on safari and experience the Big 5 in the glory of His creation, to go up Table Mountain (one of the 7 wonders of the world) for prayers, prophecies and proclamations, to enjoy the beautiful scenic routes in the Cape of Good Hope and do hiking trails on the beautiful mountains here in the Western Cape.

Testimonies From Alumni

“For me, this school has been life-changing! The setting is incredibly beautiful, the teaching is very rich and Johan and Marié give so much of themselves to create a space for people to encounter Jesus and be transformed. I experienced a lot of healing and am so glad that God brought me to the Father’s House!”

— Katie, Australia

“This school facilitated deepened Bible reading and encountering the Holy Spirit as Teacher/Revealer of God’s Word. The outreaches taught me to be fearless and bold in sharing the Gospel with people and pouring out His love to them. It also taught me to be childlike and creative again.”

— Rachel, Canada

“The Father’s House is a dwelling place of heaven. Johan and Marié have cultivated a place of family. Allowing the body of Christ to come together in a safe place to grow with and in the Lord. The most valuable and precious thing I witnessed and had the privilege to be a part of was the body of Christ in action in such a humble and fluent way. Coming together to encourage, to serve, to learn, and to love as children of God. Healing, growth, direction, and rest were all part of this beautiful journey IN the Fathers House!”

— Abigail, USA

“Jesus met me at the Father’s House with kindness, patience and goodness and completely captivated my heart in a new way. What started with a place of disappointment (when I arrived to the school), has completely transformed into a new heart and vision for the next step of my life. Lasting friendships and significant connections were made that will support me as I step into my Godly calling. Here I was able to uncover and practice my spiritual giftings, pray for my Father’s House family and minister to the people of South Africa, have a new love for my quiet time and reading the Word for spiritual food, and heal from past discouragement. I am so grateful for this experience and cannot contain my excitement for what the Lord has planned for my life!”

— Carly, USA

“The Father’s House has helped me to realign myself back to God. I was given the opportunity to serve and learn in many aspects, worship, prophecy, art, and ministry. The different teachings shed light a new perspective about my Christian faith in a way that is really beneficial. It brought me to a deeper level of intimacy with prayer, the Holy Spirit and my identity. I am so glad to have been able to give 2 months to allow Him to realign me at the Father’s House School.”

— David, Singapore

“The family setting at the Father’s House, situated amidst spectacular mountains and nature, provides the perfect place for a life-changing encounter with the Father heart of God. Expect healing where healing is needed, and an enlarged vision of who you are in God and what your future holds. I don’t think it is possible to leave here the same…”

— Rose, USA

“It was a wonderful time to be away with Ben, and have time to connect and actually process aspects of our faith together. We could grapple with teaching , pray together, grow together and seek God together for His plans for us. I have loved been part of the Kloof Ministry and seeing the joy on the children’s faces every time, and reminded me that God is truly doing work – with or without us there – but it is always an honour to be used by Him!”

— Beth, UK

“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

“This school was a hidden place deep in the mountains to pour into the Word, be saturated with prayer, and be refreshed in Christ – it was a river a-flowing of newness in the barrenness of my heart. I could be me, and be reminded that I am a Daughter of God. It is a place of authenticity, hidden in the mountains and hidden in His heart!”

— Marcelina, USA

“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

“God has used the Father’s House to get my focus on Him again, and get away from the distractions and things fighting for my time. I received emotional healing and clarity about the future and His plan for me. He spoke to me about my identity, and taught me the importance of seeking the Lord with the Holy Spirit, of meditating on Scripture, and wrestling through it with God, instead of simply studying it and listening to the teachings of others. The school reminded me to behold God and to make decisions from a place of intimacy with Him!”

— Surina, South Africa

“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
