About the ministry

Ordained as a prophet before birth, discovered at the mere age of 17. This was the moment when Leon du Preez got saved and delivered through an encounter with Jesus Christ. Leon du Preez became a living example of the supernatural power of God, that was imparted to him during his encounter.

Leon’s mantle and role of a Prophet within the body of Christ have been recognized as a divine gift and endorsed by Senior Leaders, Ministers, and Prophets of Prophets. His God-given mandate is reaching millions across the globe, as he imparts a prophetic mantle to this generation.

As the founder of one of the fast-growing churches in South Africa – Encounter Churches, Leon’s ministry has become a household name within the Body of Christ. Encounter Global Groups was birthed through our live broadcast and resulted in the planting of multiple church plants, which currently reach and impact the lives of many across the globe.

Encounter Church has been established and planted in the city of Centurion, Krugersdorp, Cape Town and Ballito in South Africa as well as establishing a strong international presence with the Encounter Online Church.
