Raising true disciples with a heart after God and a readiness to build His Kingdom in the nations

Prof. Hendrik & Dr. Phillicia Bester

Founders of the Dunamis Education Centre


Dunamis International Family Church “A church with a difference� Mission

Our mission is to build a Church with a strong spirited atmosphere of worship, faith and purity, where every member is released into ministry, discipled in the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:37-39) to obey the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19).

As the founders of DIFC it is our hearts desire to see the people in Germiston and the surrounding areas serving God and experiencing His goodness. We are a worshiping Church with a heart for God. We strongly believe that God is moving in and around our cities and the nations of the world 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.


To influence the city, surrounding areas and nations to benefit the Kingdom of God. 2


Bible school

“putting God first in all things” Pst Jaco De Swardt HOD

Prof. Hendrik and Dr. Phillicia Bester are the Founders and Senior Pastors of Dunamis International Family Church which incorporates an extensive Education Centre, of which the Bible School is part of. Prof. Bester has always been committed to the Equipping process. Founding the Bible School in 2004, they have always allowed themselves to be trained and have through the years passed on what they have received to spiritual sons and daughters in the church. “The greatest people are those who continuously develop themselves to serve others better”. This life time mission statement together with “putting God first in all things” is the foundation from which the Bible school functions. With a clear vision to raise up effective and spiritual Ministers and Pastors, the standard has been set to be the best school! Pastor Jaco Zabbud de Swardt, together with his wife, Tanet, has taken up this vision and has been serving as the principal of the Bible School since 2005, under the spiritual fathering and leadership of Prof. Hendrik & Dr. Phillicia Bester.

Testimonies Roelf Nel


I started Bible School because I thought it would be a good way to get more theoretical knowledge of the bible as my attempts to read it from cover to cover has proved less than successful. Boy was I in for a surprise! The first evening I was welcomed as a son and made to feel welcome by all. We prayed and were told to get to know one another to share the happenings of our days, to fellowship and support one another. Then came the copious notes and workbooks, I thought here comes university all over again. As the first lecture got underway I turned to the first page of my notes to follow diligently as the lecturer read same verbatim to us. Again I was blown away with the impartation and revelation that flowed from each lecturer as they were led by the spirit imparting to us what was released to them with an occasional reference to the typed notes. I could feel the Spirit of God moving as we were given pearls. Bible School has challenged and molded me from a Christian with a desire for theoretical knowledge to a Christian with a desire for a real relationship with a dynamic living God.

Counselling School

“growth to the full stature of God� Teachers Pst Niki Lauder HOD

Leon Ackerman (current student)

Since I have started with the Counseling course, I have a better understanding of my own life as well as the people around me. I have been brought up in a broken home filled with abuse and rejection without a spiritual father. I have realized what my assignment is and that I have to lead my immediate family with principals as set out by God. I have to raise my children also with these standards. I know with God as the anchor for my children, they will not have to go through life as confused as I did. I am teaching my children Gods principals and what their roles are in the house now as well as when they get married. The thing that I have learned most is that the foundation has to be right. I am not completely healed yet, but my heart is open for more and more of God.

“Hurting people hurt people, whole people heal people”

creative arts school “restoring the arts” Tanja van Biljon HOD

It has long since been the heart and plan of Prof. Hendrik Bester and Dr. Phillicia Bester to establish a Creative Arts school surrounding all the arts that carries the foundation and impact of God’s plan and purpose for the arts. The Arts is a powerful tool in the Kingdom and people need to be diligently trained in all areas to apply it accurately. The school’s aim is to train students in creative, technical skill as well as imparting important values to them regarding their characters and spiritual growth. The Arts was originally meant for God’s Kingdom and along the past centuries the arts left the church because of various reasons. We as a school want to take back the arts and restore it to its former position (Amos 9:11) and create a safe place for the arts and artists to flourish accurately and with effect in his/her creative gifts again.

There is so much more to learn than just opening your mouth and keeping the note. There are various techniques that bring out your voice, project the sound, protect your voice (very important) and just make you better than you could have ever imagined. I am currently doing my 3rd year vocal training, have just finished my Grade 3 International music exam, and have become a first year music teacher from beginning this year! I now have the privilege to teach others what I have learned through the years, and see them becoming the true singers they really are.

Tino Moodley “Over the past two months God has been revealing different things to me, for example, I should change my desire from improving in vocal abilities and focus on becoming disciplined with the gift God has given me and make sure that I use it to bring worship and glory to His name, and as He sees fit He will enable me to reach new levels vocally. I am now more excited about experiencing throne room worship than passing an exam or trying to get a distinction, my passion now is to give God the glory with what He has given me.”

Contemporary Dance by Alana Coetzer Vocal training by Yolande Scheepers Photography by Phillip Botha Ceramics(Pottery) by Jean Scheepers

The main aim of this production is to highlight the absence of the father figure in the lives of our youth today; it captures both the plan of God and Satan in our lives. Through its visual illustration of the truth this production has not only entertained and inspired the audience, but it has been a lifechanging experience. This production truly ministered to the lives of both the audience and the actors that were involved in bringing the characters to life. According to the numerous feedback given by the audience as well as the cast and crew, a group of people that left The Wits Great hall walked with “an outcry of intense hurt, defeat and brokenness confirmed by tears streaming down their faces, knowing that they received an answer to their hopeless situations, whilst others were silenced when they realised that they would not make it without giving the ‘Ultimate Father’ an opportunity to restore what had been stolen from them for many years because of the father’s absence in their lives.”


2009 - Father to the Fatherless


Live in Him move in Him, have our being in Him. The word says that He chose us first but we forget that!! God wants to talk to His people, not through religion, not through church but speak to them from His heart, directly!! What He desires for us, how He sees us. How His Kingdom works and how we fit into that, our inheritance. His love is a consuming fire and it is all directed to us and the lost world. There are too many people that merely exist, they don’t live anymore, and they have no reason to live. They wake up in the morning, go to work come home; eat sleep, work, that’s it. They feel this void and they try and fill it with all things that will only satisfy for a little while, the worldly desires and sins that just destroy them more and leave them broken and empty, they will never be fulfilled without being in God and Him being in them. There is no fellowhip, no life, no passion, and no destiny. God did not create us to merely exist!!! He created us to worship, to touch, to live life abundantly and to have our being in Him.

“Dynamic Education For Dynamic Kids!” Christelle Steyn Principal

Nine years ago, in only one room, Dynamic Kids Educational Centre started with only five Children. Today we can accommodate over one hundred children between the ages of three months to six years in an atmosphere conducive to learning and growing. It is our aim to provide and equip the individual with maximum learning opportunity to fulfill a contributing role in their community – raising up not only children with passion and zest for life but also devoted staff that are skilled and sold out for what they do. For us as a school it is important that each child’s unique strengths and weaknesses must be discovered and addressed accordingly. That each child will achieve the best that he/she is capable of. We want to build every child’s confidence, and change every “I can’t” into “I can”.

Working for Dynamic Kids was an opportunity for me to change. After eight years of service at this school I’m still enjoying every minute of working with the children. They are such a blessing in my life. What really touched my heart is the vision and the culture of the school. This is to take the children forward, believe in their destiny, love and protect them and most of all, to work as a team. I’m thankful every day for being a teacher at Dynamic Kids Pre-school Education Centre. Virginia Nnabuchi

Anaclayto Mooney

Elvira du Tiot

(previous student)

(current student)

I have never experienced anything in my life like last year’s the GAP. First of all, God changed so many perceptions I had of myself, of the kingdom, of ministry, and of my assignment here on earth.

HOSEA 6:1-2 “Come and let us RETURN TO THE LORD for he has torn, but HE WILL HEAL US, he has stricken, but he will bind us up. After two days HE WILL REVIVE US; on the third day HE WILL RAISE US UP that we may LIVE IN HIS SIGHT”

I can say with much confidence and certainty that this was definitely in the predetermined, predestined plan that God had set for my life while I was still in my mother’s womb. Before I did the GAP year, I was a confused school leaver that didn’t have clear direction of where it is I am going, or what it is I should do with my life. This changed as my life turned right-side-up doing the GAP year. Clarity of purpose and of direction came into my life, and I can testify that an unfolding of destiny was released. Since the GAP Year, I have enrolled at the Faculty of Economics at UNISA, studying BCom Financial Management. Since the GAP Year, everything in my life has increased. My love for my God, for my leaders, and for people has moved to a higher level than what it was before I did the GAP Year. I now know where I am going, what I must do, who I am in Christ, and what my assignment is…


When I gave my life to God my soul was crying out for impartation to know more about ‘the man who came down to save me’ I then spoke to my cell Shepherd and he informed me about the Gap Year training course that equips one to walk a road with Christ. I was joyous and wanted to do it straight away. I started in the beginning of February with the Gap Year course at Dynamic Training Centre. I can honestly say without a shadow of doubt that it has changed my course. During the training and practical sessions - going out with the pastors - I have received so much impartation and teaching that I‘ve grown immensely. Being in this powerful atmosphere has changed me and I can truly say that I have experienced a metamorphosis to such an extent that I know I am now moving from strength to strength with my Father that has a plan for me and a destiny. GOD IS GOOD, HE IS REAL, HE IS ALIVE, HE IS OUR FATHER and He really wants to prosper us for something greater than ourselves. At Dunamis I found a home, I now have the urge to keep on Running! Running! Running! Running to a place of the unknown, but where I know I belong!!
