We are a worshipping Church with a heart for God. We strongly believe that God is moving to bring restoration and upliftment however He has chosen to use ordinary people to do this, in a supernatural way. God is raising up a generation of powerful Sons and Daughters who are willing to follow Him without compromise.
Senior Pastors of Dunamis International Family church
Pastors Wentzel & Fiona Du Plessis
Dynamic and vibrant man and woman of God that has been discipled for over 25 years and carry a fierce force to advance the kingdom of God and see God’s glory manifest in the nations of the world.
The scripture that our theme is based on this year is Isaiah 2:2
“It shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be [firmly] established as the highest of the mountains and shall be exalted above the hills, and all nations shall flow to it.”
We are declaring over us as a Dunamis Family, that this will be a year of higher ground & new heights. We know it is Gods heart & His will for us to soar into new heights in every area of our lives
God wants is to come up onto higher grounds. Higher ground does not start with our needs, wants & desires, it starts with God. Higher ground is coming up to the mountain of the Lord
Isaiah 2:3 says: “And many people shall come and say, Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob, that He may teach us His ways and that we may walk in His paths. For out of Zion shall go forth the law and instruction, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.”
Let us go up & receive instruction from Him. The centre point of higher ground is coming up to God, drawing closer into a relationship with Him.
Stepping into a place where we worship God like we have never worshipped Him before. Where we pray & seek His face & where we inquire from Him. HIGHER GROUND STARTS WITH GOD
God is going to release over our lives, new heights
For us to come up to the mountain of the Lord, it is important for us to allow God to clean our hands, to clean our hearts & allow God to do a work on the inside of us in order for us as His people to draw nearer to Him
God wants to do something sovereign in our lives, because God has planned for us to soar into new heights. The DNA in our veins is unstoppable & unshakable
In 2020, God graced us to fight many battles & therefor we are brave. He made us resilient, we had the capacity to recover from difficulties. Remember, stepping into His World, always gives us the advantage
God is putting a new standard in our lives – filled with resilience & security, trusting in Him & walking in victory
1 Corinthians 10:13 – The Passion Translation it reads:
“We all experience times of testing, which is normal for every human being. But God will be faithful to you. He will screen and filter the severity, nature, and timing of every test or trial you face so that you can bear it. And each test is an opportunity to trust him more, for along with every trial God has provided for you a way of escape that will bring you out of it victoriously.”
In Exodus 3 God also says He will surely be with us. Our declaration over each & everyone of us for 2021 is:
That we will come up to where Gods world is – Higher ground & by raising the standard in our lives through letting go of the past & welcoming the new – use that as a platform for new heights & through that, allowing the blessings of God to flow to others
We pray that God will reward our trust in Him & that we will walk victoriously in 2021
We need to be thankful & grateful to the Lord because He is always so good
May we receive the blessing of the Lord as we step unto higher ground knowing that defeat, decline & decay shall not be our portion. The blessing of the Lord shall overtake us, will pursue us & will supersede any attack of the enemy that wants to come our way in the Name of Jesus Christ
We declare His life over us, we declare His blessing over us, we declare the blood of Jesus over us & our families
2021 – the year of HIGHER GROUND & NEW HEIGHTS!!
I see the end of 2020 as bringing a new sense of thankfulness in 2021
Thanksgiving will cause us to pause, reflect & celebrate. We need to regroup, reassess & remind ourselves of what is really important in our lives – like faith, family, health & work
We have lost so much this past year, but loss also reminds us of our abundant blessings, so many we take for granted daily, like food, a roof over our heads, good health & meaningful work
We have gone through life-changing events this past year. There’s no “going back to normal,” to the way things were. Life is different now. We have the scars to prove it
The pain of 2020 has brought many of us to our knees, where we can see things differently & the only place to look – is up, towards heaven. On our knees is a good place for us to start anew in thanksgiving We must look forward to the future possibilities to come in the new year. We need to put 2020 behind us & we need to embrace, nurture & cultivate the good seeds from 2020
2021 will be filled with new opportunities & challenges. Let us all work together to create kindness, understanding & healing in our immediate circumstances & surroundings
There are still reasons to have hope for the future. We know that our sovereign God hasn’t stopped working. We can pray for God’s continued providence according to the Word:
“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” – 1 Thessalonians 5:16–18
Let us be the carriers of hope. There is ALWAYS hope, declare it & believe it!!

DIFC Building Project
To all the pastors, teachers, friends and delegates that came to our Worship conference annually in July since 2001, a very big THANK YOU for all your support. You have been faithfully coming each year and we appreciate it so much
As many of you know, we have been busy for years trying to find land to build a church and also amongst all, a school for the creative arts. Some of you wrote letters to the authorities of our city, motivating and giving reasons why we should go ahead with the building plans.
It now gives us great pleasure to announce that soon the ground will be broken on the 10ha land that we have bought. Everything has now been approved by the authorities and can we go ahead to build a city in a city on a hill as per Scripture given to us. We will keep you informed of the progress by showing pictures etc. etc.
Saying all of this, we hereby take great liberty in giving you our banking details, should you want to partner with us in this great assignment that God has given to us.
For more information about what we are doing in the assignment, you can click on the different links to read more about all our departments and how each member is mobilised to do something great in the Kingdom of God.
