  4. Hosting conferences.
  5. TV ministry.
  6. Charity to help children who are victims of abuse.

Our Mission:

Our mission is to see people saved, set free and walking in the Spirit. We want to help local churches create and live in powerful atmosphere’s of God’s grace. Our ministry in local churches and conferences is all about giving strength and honour to leaders, empowerment to the saints and helping to protect the Body of Christ from destructive and distracting doctrines. We believe ministry flows out of intimacy with Jesus and when His Word and presence comes, atmosphere’s are shifted and lives are transformed.

Our Message:


  1. To walk in the SPIRIT covenant (grace)
  2. From your reborn SPIRIT (new nature)
  3. In fellowship with the Holy SPIRIT
  4. In the unity of the SPIRIT with the Body of Christ.

  • Grace based authority.
  • Knowing the Holy Spirit.
  • Ministry of the Holy Spirit.

The Way We See Church:

  • We believe that THE CHURCH is God’s PLAN A for reaching this world and fulfilling the Great Commission.
  • We have a high value for seeing LOCAL CHURCHES becoming everything that Christ intended them to be and for every believer to find their part.
  • We believe that every local church should be an embassy of heaven that shows this world what heaven looks like when it comes to a community of people here on earth.

Therefore our passion is to help churches develop these 12 ESSENTIAL AND POWERFUL CULTURES:

  1. PRESENCE: Where there is a love, honour and hunger for hosting God’s presence.
  2. WORSHIP: Where the goal of worship is to lead people into an encounter with God and a lifestyle of surrender to Him.
  3. WORD: Where the preaching of the Word is rich in New Covenant revelation that spiritually feeds and establishes people every week.
  4. SPIRIT: Where there are regular ministry times full of the Holy Spirit with people being saved, healed, set free, inspired and transformed.
  5. FELLOWSHIP: Where people share their lives together as one caring family in fellowship, generosity and serving.
  6. VISITORS: Where visitors are so welcome and feel instantly connected to the church.
  7. EVANGELISM: Where everyone cares about the lost, brings the lost, and the church is geared to seeing them saved and added.
  8. EQUIPPING: Where people find their purpose and place and are empowered to fulfil it.
  9. CHILDREN: Where children’s ministry is all about having fun, learning about God and being connected with friends.
  10. EXCELLENCE: Where there is a spirit of excellence for the purpose of giving value and importance to the message and Presence.
  11. LEADERSHIP: Where leaders are secure, truly know God, have a pure love for people and a high value for God’s grace, glory and government.
  12. PRAYER: Where everything we do is birthed in prayer and reliance upon God.

I (Ryan) was born in South Africa in 1977 and grew up there in a pastors home until we moved to Australia when I was thirteen. I spent fourteen years in Australia growing up, getting married to Kylie and having two children, Renae and Chloe. We ministered as pastors in two local churches consecutively, until we were called to Hong Kong to serve with my parents in their newly planted church. We ministered side by side with my parents Rob and Glenda Rufus in City Church International for twelve years, having two more children, Kimberly and Asher, writing numerous books on grace and ministering in conferences and local churches around the world. Being prepared to spend the rest of our lives in Asia, God revealed He had other plans for us so in early 2017 He called us forward to Adelaide, South Australia to launch our own ministry called New Nature Ministries.
