About Us

GAP Ministries is a non-profit, trans-denominational and parachurch ministry. We are evangelical in heart and guided by God's Word.  
Our vision is to establish God's Kingdom through prayer, evangelism, social action, and community transformation. 
Our mission is to share the love and reality of Christ through various prayer initiatives events and prayer networks. We share the good news of Jesus Christ in many ways and motivate and mobilize others to do the same.
We believe that community transformation is achievable through the combined efforts of churches, ministries, and community organizations and we work towards this goal. We are based in Uitenhage (South Africa) with a vision for Africa and the rest of the World.

Our Story

Over the past 26 years, GAP ministries have evolved through different phases to become what it is today. After being stirred by God to move to the Eastern Cape, and with a burden for mission work, God divinely connected us with a group of people with similar visions and interests. This led to the establishment of the Exodus Centre, which was instrumental in presenting the Love Southern Africa ‘99 conference, of which we were very much a part. The vision of the Exodus Centre was to mobilize the Church to get involved in world missions, but also with the needs of our local communities. Over the years most of the people involved in the Exodus Centre left Uitenhage. After much prayer, our calling to the area was confirmed once again, and “GAP Ministries” was established in May 2002. GAP Ministries is an independent ministry and enjoys the support of our local church, the Dutch Reformed Church, Uitenhage North.

Where Do You Find Us?

The demographics of Uitenhage are reminiscent of most South African towns and cities with a well-built-up center and neighborhoods with sprawling townships surrounding it. Uitenhage is surrounded by the typical natural beauty of the province with many mountain ranges nearby. 

What Do We Do?

Activities include the following:

* Prayer - Coordination of the local Prayer Network, facilitation of 24 prayer watches, implementation of national and international prayer initiatives and the mobilization of individuals and churches for prayer.
* Evangelism - Sharing the Love of Christ through outreaches and evangelism.
* Mobilisation and networking of churches towards the corporate goal of community transformation.
* Social Action and Community Transformation through community development projects.

How Are We Governed?

GAP Ministries is a trust that is managed by the trustees. The founder of the trust was Johan van Wyk, Pierre’s dad who realized the need for formalizing what we were doing and prompted us to jointly form the Go and Proclaim Trust in 2002. The trust is subjected to the requirements as laid out by the Government for operating a trust of this kind. Due to the unique and demanding requirements of a ministry, our church leadership requires all full-time missionaries to have, what we call, a sending cell or, in other words, a support group. Together with them, we meet regularly to pray, strategize, and cry and laugh together. They serve as an accountability structure together with the senior leadership of our church.
