Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:
and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
How we came about ?
Firelighters Ministries is an evangelistic organisation situated in Wellington, South Africa.  It was started in 2004 by Johannes (John) Botes. He is passionate about the Lord and the organisation has a biblical foundation.

Matthew 28:19 - 20
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Why ?

The primary objective is to take God's Word to the people of South Africa who do not have a living relationship with their Creator and direct them towards God.  A loving God, healing for hurt emotions and broken relationships, provider of our daily needs.


As a support base for the actual ministry an Administrative, Sound and IT department was set up.  Some of the things we are doing inlcudes teaching the youth in dancing, piano and guitar lessons to name a few.

We had our first Youth camp in 2004 which was a great success also the first Woman's Seminar was held in the SAF Marine Hall in Newtown by Connie.  Peoples lives have changed, and  relationships restored - all glory goes to the Lord.

This whole venture was based on total faith in God, that He will provide the finances and equipment needed for this kind of undertaking.  To acquire Sound equipment that can reach a crowd of +/- 100 people is not cheap and cannot be taken lightly.  To make matters worse, we needed some sort of mobile stage to work from, that can accommodate a full band and a person preaching.  God was faithful and has provided all that was necessary to do the job.

In 2005 Firelighters Ministries was registered as a Section 21 company (A Non-Profit / Voluntary Organisation under South African Companies Act of 1973) and the logo design was finalised
The 3 flames in one flame.  The explanation of the logo as follows:

1) The three flames:  The most important law in God's Word is that you should love God above anything else and that God, the Father, the Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ is one.  Just like a man a woman and children is one family and one flesh, such is God but in spirit.  Mark 12:29-31 also see Matthew 22:37-38.

2)  The flames suggest the presence of God among humans, like the first outpouring of the Holy Spirit in Acts 2:1 - 4 also see Matthew 3:11 - He will baptise you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.

As it came we found that the kids and youth we ministred to had no real spiritual foundation and was left mostly to their own devices.  In order to help them face real life and become strong men and women in society we started organising Youth camps.  As far as adults go we did same with men's and womens camps.

Connie is the head of the womens ministry and have often been the guest speaker at local womans conferences.  Many lives were touched in a very positive way and families were brought back together through God's healing hand.

Anyone can participate and be part of this dynamic and rewarding ministry.  We can accomodate volunteers on a day basis to help or just see how things happen.  If you need us to pray for you or to bring a message at your church or camp venue, drop us a note in the Message System hereunder to establish contact.
