A passion for restoring families
God called us to restore lives, marriages and families in 1984. Our vision is to develop Family Transformation Centres across the nations where people can attend seminars led by trained facilitators, receive counselling and be transformed to make a meaningful contribution in their communities.
RESOURCE TRAINING BASE
The Family Transformation Centre in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, presents seminars on a monthly basis.
Pastors and leaders can attend these seminars to be trained and equipped to present the various seminars in their local church. At the same time they will have the opportunity to see the Family Centre in operation. Ongoing support is then given to these churches.
TRAIN THE TRAINER
We offer special courses aimed at training leadership in local churches to become facilitators of the various courses. We also offer training on how to start a family department and a Family Transformation Centre in the local church. Please see the dates and times most suited for you. Drummond and Lindah also travel out to other centres to offer training where viable .Please see under testimonies how many thousands of people have been touched personally and in their marriage and family through these courses. Churches have seen leaders raised up and people committing their lives to Christ.
If you would like to become a facilitator please contact us for dates and times to attend the training.
Drummond and Lindah have a God given vision to:
- Restore and protect the covenant of marriage.
- Heal, restore and equip families to become an environment of love, acceptance, and forgiveness where each person may experience hope, joy and a sense of security and fulfilment in their value as a person and their purpose and destiny in life.
- Raise up and release leadership potential in the local Church as people are restored and given a vision & opportunity to use their gifts in service of others.
- Help build up the local Church and equip it to serve its community in restoring families.
Family Transformation is a section 21 non-profit organisation Reg No: 2001/017160/08.

Drummond and Lindah have a vision to help local churches establish Family Transformation Centres in their communities. The family centre will be a department of the local church and the vision includes the following:
- Prepare couples for marriage
- Equip couples to have a better marriage
- Help people become better parents
- Strengthen and bless families
- Minister to families in crisis e.g.
– Coping with divorce
– Grieving through the loss of someone
– Crisis in pregnancy (even if this is initially a point of referral)
- Raise up and release leadership
- Build up the local church
This will be achieved by offering:
- Holy Spirit anointed seminars (giving practical instruction on how to understand and apply biblical principles to their lives)
- Family life support / cell groups
- Resources. Targeted books, tapes, DVD’s
- Individual, as well as couples counseling
The first Family Transformation Centre was started alongside Harvest Christian Church in Port Elizabeth and since 1997 over 10 000 people have attended seminars and received ministry. The interesting fact is that over 80% were not from the local church; that is, they were drawn from the general community.
The fact that 80% of families are in crisis and need desperate help is something that we as churches need to address. We believe that the Family Transformation Centre is a God solution to help bridge the gap between the community and the local church. People with family related needs will not normally come to the local church for help.
Family Transformation Centres can provide the door for them to find help and to be channelled into the local church.
There are various Family Transformation Centres who partner with us around the nations

Mercy mercy mercy is the answer to our “Judgmental attitude”. The sacrifice of the cross and the mercy that flowed from it has become our solution! The beauty of the pomegranate fruit is an expression of the shining and eternal deliverance brought to us. Mercy the ingredient that makes all things possible by applying it to all our personal experience and by forgiving our enemies! Sending out the Spirit of Mercy forgiving them and releasing oneself from the bondage and curse caused by hurt and disappointment both parties are set free!
On arriving home I showed Basil the books I had purchased and Basil started reading The Two Kingdoms. When we awoke the following morning he said to me “This is the answer” I asked him how are we going to change from Judgement and Criticism to Mercy and Honour he clicked his figure and said just like that?! Well the day after I heard your message it was as simple as that, once you send them into the river of Mercy it is over!! Hallelujah! Our King is faithful and true and whatever He says, He will do! A lot happens over the period of 30 years and yet as we yield to the Holy Spirit to reveal who is next, mercy is released! Amazing too amazing!!
I agree with Drummond that he has never met anyone as committed and with such passion as you! You are a reflection of my hearts desire. I have seen in you the longing of my heart become fleshed out! And that has been most encouraging. You are both such an amazing couple! The anointing that flows from you during your teaching sessions is tangible and delightful!! That is what will heal the broken and confused hearts! Showing the Mercy shown to us will heal the Nations of their pain tears and fears!

I just finished reading your book “Living in the Rivers of Mercy.” Wow! I feel like a huge weight has been lifted from heart! For the first time in 50 years, I have released my parents and my sister into the river of mercy. Thank you for your message of freedom through forgiveness and through being a channel of His mercy to others. May God richly bless your ministry!Carla
I want to honor the Family Transformation Centre and all its leaders and role players. You guys are doing incredible work in and around the City and our country! Families and lives are changed permanently, set free and released to fulfill their destinies and live lives that honor our Lord Jesus Christ! God truly smiles upon all of you! A heartfelt thank you!Dr Marieke Roux
This ministry brings life and hope to so many – very excited about “The Promise”. Can’t wait to facilitate it here in East London.Debbie Boardman
MAN OF HONOUR AND WOMAN OF PEACE PROGRAM ITS IMPACT IN THE TRANSFORMATION PROCCES IN THE KENYA PRISONS
The program was introduced in the Kenya prisons in the year 2010 and since then it has had a high impact in the personal lives of both inmates and members of staff.
A good number have received Jesus Christ as their personal savior, the inmates who have undergone the program have been able to reconcile with those they offended, this has had a real transformation in their lives.
Those who have undergone the program, have developed a positive attitude towards life, this has helped a lot in the rehabilitation of the said inmates and others.
Many marriages that were collapsing have been saved, when Christian values are embraced in their day today lives, especially members of staff.
The inmates who have undertaken the program have high sense of self esteem through self acceptance and realizing that imprisonment is not the end of life. Attached is a list of the number of inmates and staff who have undertaken the program.
