Christo and Estelle Campher, Founders of His Place Ministry and later known as His Place Developing
Centre, had the desire to serve God and to help others. They had an open hand and open heart to
the less fortunate through out their lives. As they grew their family and home educated their
children, they were able and actively involved within their local church.
During those years there
were children and young teenagers from a nearby settlement that regularly came begging for food.
It became apparent that regardless of the dire circumstances that these children had to endure,
some was without shelter at times. Moved with compassion Christo and Estelle started to assist
these however they could and started to evangelise to these children firstly at their home, teaching
them the love of Jesus, and the good news of the kingdom of God.
As the relationship with these
children grew Christo and Estelle started to go into the Settlements these children came from
continuing to preach and evangelise within those communities. At that time, it became clear that
God wanted Christo and Estelle to create a haven for all that seek it, and to teach them form the
word of God and provide an Educations and Literacy to both children and Adults.
During the year 2000, they were involved in a spirit filled ministry, serving God and the community,
however the dream and vision God has placed within their hearts was to build a ministry focused on
education. Starting 2005 they started training and education their first group of Students in their
home, using the word of God as the foundation of their education. God through His Spirit gave the
name His Place to them and in November of 2005 they started their own Ministry under the name,
His Place. God has opened the doors to fulfil this vision by assisting us in attaining our premises.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
In 2006 they took in their first group of Students in the Literacy Centre, giving school and educating
during the week and having church services over the weekends. His Place is still growing from
Strength to strength, pursuing the vision and strategy God gives them.
