About Us

Hi! We are the Canipe family and we are glad you have taken the time to take a look at our website and to get to know us a little bit better.

I was born and raised in High Point, North Carolina. I was also raised in what we commonly call a broken family. My parents divorced when I was very young. After graduating from high school I went to North Carolina State University where I graduated with a degree in Business Management in 1985.

It was only in 1986 that I met Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior. A couple years after my conversion experience I felt God calling me into full-time ministry work. I then moved to Fort Worth, Texas and attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. I ultimately graduated from Southwestern with a PhD in Evangelism and New Testament studies. During my time at Southwestern I met my beautiful wife, Stephanie, and had our three children.

Throughout the 1990’s I became very active in traveling to many parts of Africa teaching and training African pastors. I have always had a strong desire to teach and equip leaders and the members of the body of Christ.

In 2002 we decided as a family to relocate our “home base” to South Africa where we would continue our ministry and outreach into Africa. In January, 2003 we moved to Worcester, South Africa. Worcester is a small farming community about one hour from Cape Town.

Over the past 16 years we have been involved in many different types of ministry, all of which involve our passion which is to see Christians grow into a full understanding of what Jesus Christ has done for them through the work of grace and His life, death, burial, and resurrection.

I believe that the life of Jesus is the answer to any and all of man’s problems and issues in this life. I desire more than anything to help Christians discover their true identity in Jesus Christ and to live from a place of total grace and peace.

Stephanie and I now travel internationally teaching and encouraging the body of Christ as God connects us through relationships. We hope you are encouraged by what you find on our website. God bless you!

Discover your true identity in Christ!
