A passion for restoring families

Drummond & Lindah have a passion to restore and empower peoples lives, marriages and families. This was born out of their love relationship with God and each other. After experiencing the tragedy of the breakdown of marriages and relationships of those close to them, they began to write and develop materials based on biblical principles. 21 years later, there are now 7 seminars on marriage, family and personal development. They have published over 10 books and ministered into nations around the world.

Lindah and Drummond Robinson


Drummond & Lindah have a wealth of life experience that has shaped and enriched their capacity to encapsulate Biblical truths into everyday life.

They were married in 1970 and have 3 children and 10 grandchildren.

Lindah trained as a teacher and Drummond ran his own business in Johannesburg for 20 years.

They gave their lives to the Lord in 1977 and became very involved in ministry.

They took their family to YWAM in Hawaii in 1983 for 7 months to be equipped and serve in mission outreach.

Upon their return, they joined Drummond’s brother Ron Robinson who was pastoring New Creation Church and pioneering Christian education in South Africa.

They served on leadership and became involved in the vision of church growth and pioneering Christian education at a critical time of transition out of apartheid in South Africa. They helped establish and lead The Kings School in Johannesburg.

This developed into a non-racial school movement that would eventually grow to over a thousand schools throughout South Africa.

In 1991 they moved to Jeffreys Bay in the Eastern Cape where they served on leadership at Victory Christian Church for 4 years. During this season God led them to begin to develop resources to help restore broken families.

In 1995 they moved to Port Elizabeth and joined Harvest Christian Church serving as Elders and Family pastors for 21 years. During this this time, they established a Family Counselling Centre and continued to develop various resources which became the foundation used to run courses to heal and transform peoples lives. During this time over 10,000 people attended courses and many received salvation and were helped in their lives, marriages and families.

They established Family Transformation International and travelled extensively equipping many churches to use their resources and start similar Counselling Centres to reach out into their communities in a practical way.

Since January 2018 they have focused totally on Family Transformation International, a non profit Organisation. They now focus their time and support to the development of Leadership and the wider distribution of their resources around the world.

There have been amazing testimonies of how their resources have touched people in every walk of life, from prisons to boardrooms, churches and homes.

Thousands of lives, marriages and families have been impacted around the world and some of the resources have been translated into other languages like French, German, Portugese and Dutch.

These resources which have been developed over 25 years are now available directly to you anywhere in the world via digital download.


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.

Our Centres

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
  • Provide resources for Men and Woman groups
  • 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.

Dearest Drummond and Lindah

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!

Fond regards,

Basil and Reinette Kellar

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!

This ministry brings life and hope to so many – very excited about “The Promise”. Can’t wait to facilitate it here in East London.

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.
