Originally from South Africa, Gerhard is a coveted speaker in conferences around the world, who has a deep burden to see a revival of praying men. He has witnessed many “mercy drops” of revival in God’s presence as he faithfully and passionately prays and preaches the Word. Along with a vibrant prayer life, he brings personal experience and a rich knowledge of God and the scriptures.
Gerhard and Janice have a daughter, Monica, who is in ministry with “Power To Change Students” at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia, reaching out to students with the Gospel and discipling Christian students. In 2011, Gerhard and Janice Du Toit sensed the Lord leading them to join Life Action Canada, and they have been serving full time ever since.
Peter & Michelle Davis
Peter and Michelle Davis felt the call from God to leave the comforts of the corporate world in 2006. It took them 3 years to come to terms with this calling and gain the courage to step away from the financial security they enjoyed. They sold almost everything, raised financial support and moved to the USA to serve with Life Action Ministries at the Life Action Family Camp in Buchanan, MI. Their heart for revival grew during this time and they felt a burden growing for the growth of Life Action in Canada.
In 2014 they returned to Canada to launch Life Action Canada forward. This started from the ground up with the incorporation of a new Canadian charity and the grass roots startup of a new organization. Time has been spent over the past year and a half behind the scenes administratively as well as raising awareness of Life Action in Canada. New members have been added to the leadership team of Life Action Canada as the organization has grown. Peter and Michelle look forward to the message of spiritual awakening increasing here in Canada at a time when so many people have drifted so far from God. Although Peter and Michelle spend much of their time working behind the scenes, they welcome every opportunity to work front line spreading the revival message here in Canada
