About Us


At Word of Life Ministries International, we are passionate about our commitment to faith and service. We believe that faith without works is dead, and that as Christians, we are called to be the hands and feet of Christ in the world. This is why we are dedicated to serving the needs of our community, and to being a source of hope and healing for those who are hurting.

Our mission is to make disciples of all nations, and to equip and empower believers to live out their faith in practical ways. We are inspired by the words of James 2:14-17, which says “What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, ‘Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,’ but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.”

We are committed to providing opportunities for spiritual growth and service to our members. We have a number of departments, including the Men’s Fellowship, Women of Influence, the Youth, Children’s Church, and other service units including Praise and Worship, Evangelism, and other Kingdom service groups. We believe that every member has a unique role to play in the life of our church, and we are dedicated to helping them discover and use their God-given gifts and talents for His glory. We invite you to join us in this mission of faith and service, as we seek to make a positive impact on the world around us.

A Brief History

Word of Life Ministries International, also known as WOLMI, was established in the hearts of my wife, Rirhandzu, and I on January 18th, 1998. Our first service had only one attendee, but we did not allow that to discourage us. Word of mouth quickly spread, and we had eight attendees the following Sunday. We believe that God had called and destined us for something better, greater, and powerful, as outlined in Job 8:7 – “Though your beginning was small, yet your latter end should greatly increase.” We have enjoyed seeing God’s grace over WOLMI over the years, growing from faith to faith, grace to grace, and strength to strength.

In my experience, before God promotes a person, He often rotates them. This was the case with WOLMI, as we moved from our first service in my apartment to a TV room that could only accommodate 15 people. Two months later, we moved to 140 Hamilton, with only seven solid members, occupying a 75-seater auditorium. In about two years, it became full, and we had to relocate to SG Lourens nursing college and later to the Jewish synagogue.

In 2004, WOLMI moved to Arcadia Centre, where we began a vigorous fundraising campaign for land. Initially, we received an offer of 3.314 hectares for R2.050 million, but we could not raise the full amount, and the landowner increased the price to R2.3 million. A few days before signing the necessary papers, the landowner sold it to someone else for a much higher price, which tested our faith. However, we persevered and eventually purchased our current property of 8.5 hectares (22 acres) for a few million rand.

It is a great joy to see how far WOLMI has come over the years and the many lives it has impacted. We give all glory to God for His faithfulness and grace, and we continue to believe that the best is yet to come for WOLMI.


At Word of Life Ministries International, we are blessed to have a leadership team that is wholly committed to living out the principles of the gospel in their daily lives. Guided by the teachings of Christ, our men and women are dedicated to serving God and serving others, and they are deeply committed to the mission of the church.

We believe that our leaders are called by God to be servant leaders, as expressed in Mark 10:45, “For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Led by the capable and highly anointed Pastor Noel Sithole, our leadership team exemplifies the qualities of a God-fearing leader as outlined in 1 Timothy 3:1-7. They are committed to taking the gospel and the work of the kingdom forward, through their involvement in programs such as evangelism, discipleship, and community outreach.

We are grateful for their wisdom, their dedication, and their unwavering commitment to the Lord and His people. Their leadership inspires us to deepen our own relationship with Christ and to embrace our own calling to serve as ambassadors of the gospel. As we look to the future, we are confident that our leadership will continue to guide us forward in faith and obedience, as we seek to make an impact in our community and beyond.

Men’s Ministry

The Men’s Fellowship at Word of Life Ministries International is committed to helping men grow in their faith, develop their leadership skills, and become better fathers. Proverbs 20:7 says, “The righteous lead blameless lives; blessed are their children after them.” We believe that by building strong, faithful men, we can have a positive impact on families and communities.

Through our programs and activities, such as Bible studies, prayer meetings, and community outreach projects, we aim to provide a supportive community for men to grow in their faith and develop their leadership potential. We believe that men have a critical role to play in the church and in the world, and we are dedicated to helping them fulfill this role with love, patience, and wisdom. We invite all men to join us in this journey of faith and fatherhood.

Women of Influence

Women of Influence is the ladies ministry at Word of Life Ministries International, led by Pastor Rirhandzu. We believe in the power of women to make a difference in the world, and we are committed to empowering and equipping women to fulfill their God-given potential. Our ministry hosts an annual conference, as well as events throughout the year, to provide opportunities for women to connect, grow, and be inspired. Our focus is on women’s empowerment, personal growth, and spiritual development, and we are dedicated to helping women become the best versions of themselves. We invite all women to join us on this journey of growth and transformation, as we seek to make a positive impact on our families, communities, and the world.

Youth At WOLMI

Our youth ministry is dedicated to empowering young people with the Word of God, and providing them with the tools and resources they need to grow in their faith and make a positive impact on their communities. We believe that Proverbs 22:6 holds true, “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” That’s why we offer a variety of programs and activities, including Bible studies, youth camps, and community service projects, all designed to help our young people become strong, confident, and capable leaders who are guided by the principles of faith.

We invite all youth to join us in our mission to spread the Word of God and make a positive impact on the world. Let’s work together to build a brighter future for ourselves and for generations to come.
