Encounter Christian Church (E.C.C) was founded by Leon & Este-Lee du Preez. This was after Leon already ministered extensively as an itinerant minister and revivalist for 3 years across the nation of South Africa, Namibia, United States and the Indian Ocean.

In 2013 Leon was sent out into full-time, itinerant ministry after serving at Destiny Harvest Centre under Marc Bredenkamp, his spiritual father and senior pastor for 8 years. That was when Leon started Encounter Ministries International that still reaches out and revives the local body nationally & internationally. Leon also founded “The Second Chance Project” that reaches out to schools and universities. Second Chance has seen extensive revival in the schools of Namibia, and in South Africa and is in the process of broadening it’s horizons even more!

Leon’s ministry and testimony has also been featured on national Christian and secular TV stations in South Africa, Namibia and on numerous radio stations crossing borders bringing deliverance to many.

Recognised and sent out by Ps Marc Bredenkamp, Leon is currently residing in Centurion, South Africa together with his beautiful wife, Este-Lee Du Preez and his princess daughters, Scarlet Grace and Bethany Angel.
