Ignited in Christ

About Us

“The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few.”

Matthew 9:37

Who We Are

Gerhard and Deirdré (previously Deborah) Pieterse leads this ministry that was birthed by the Holy Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ during March 2013. Deborah changed her name back to her birth-name “Deirdré” for two reasons namely that Jesus has shown her that He has redeemed her birth name completely to its meaning on the side of the Light meaning “seeker of righteousness and truth” and, secondly, due to the fact that Jesus has set the ministry of Ignited in Christ completely free from the first season since its inception and that everything is made completely new by Him.

We are simply disciples (followers) of Jesus Christ who wants to obey Him. We have been called to “set the captives free” (Isaiah 61) and from that perspective we are constantly being taught by the Holy Spirit since only the truth will set people free (John 8:32). Jesus said through the prophet Hosea that His people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge (Hos. 4:6) and the same is equally true today as we are nearing the end of time and Jesus’ return.


What We Do

We have ministered to believers in Jesus Christ on all three levels of their humanity namely spirit, soul and body (1 Thes. 5: 23) for a period of 12 years. During this period, the aim was to bring deliverance and healing to children of God on all three levels of their being.

We ministered in the power of the Holy Spirit and with the aid of the gifts of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor. 12) as well as the Word, prayer, spiritual music and every other instrument that the Holy Spirit may place in our hands.

At the end of the 12-year period, the Holy Spirit however revealed to us the fact that all the believers that we ministered to were still also in covenant with the enemy (dualism) due to the fact that they were baptised as believers by full immersion in water. Due to this, the struggle to gain freedom from the bondage of the enemy was never-ending and believers were not set free completely.

The focus of the ministry has therefore now shifted to bringing truth to the Body of Christ by way of teachings on YouTube and in writing and to create awareness since Jesus Himself said that we will know the truth and the truth will set us free (John 8:32).

Current Ambit & Operations

We believe that believers should take ownership of their own freedom in Jesus Christ and should take up their own authority in Him. We believe in teaching believers to stand up in their authority and to then claim back the spiritual territory from the enemy that has been stolen.

Ultimately, we aim to equip believers in Jesus Christ with knowledge of the truth in order to be set free from bondage and then to become mighty end-time witnesses for the Kingdom of Jesus Christ.


All our teachings and videos are available to the Bride of Jesus Christ for free in obedience to our Lord Jesus’ instructions that, since we have freely received from Him, we should also freely give (Mat. 10: 8).
