About Us

Over time Jesus Alive began to discover that the vast majority of Africa’s unreached were not in the often over-evangelized cities, but rather in rural villages where few evangelists ever go, and very little support of any kind ever reaches the local church. It was also evident that the effect an outreach could have on a small, rural community is proportionally much greater than on a city of millions.


In Memory of Peter Pretorius

On the 9th of August, the world lost a legend, the poverty stricken in Africa lost one of their greatest champions, we lost our leader, Ann lost her partner and husband, the Pretorius family lost their father and Oupa and heaven welcomed a true hero.
Our JAM father Peter Pretorius passed away and went to be with Jesus. Please hold the family in your prayers and respect their privacy at this time. Read more
