LIFE Community Services was established to confront the dilemmas and crises facing impoverished children today. 

When the needs of children in crisis begin to outweigh the capacity to minister to them, action must be taken. Churches, businesses and other organizations are all looking for ways to compassionately confront the overwhelming blight children are experiencing throughout the world.

LIFE Community Services is a direct response to this challenge.

LIFE Community Services ministry started in 1999 when a church (Patria Bible Church) in George (South Africa) saw that some children coming in off the street could not concentrate during services. This was apparently due to the lack of nutrition. The church inquired where these children came from and visited their community. Under the initiative of Myrtle Grimm and Dave Hooper, the outreach started in Parkdene. From these initial visits the ministry to 40 to 50 children was established on a regular basis.

In January of 2001, Philip and Maryna DeVries accepted the challenge and came from the United States of America (USA) to spearhead this outreach ministry. LIFE Community Services was registered as a not for profit organization and the work began. In September 2002, Sally Versfeld joined our team.

Some of the issues confronting the ministry is the fact that George’s  unfortunate “claim to fame” is the highest death rate of TB patients, a growing AIDS crisis, the highest per capita alcoholism, (which has lead to incredible poverty) and the highest per/capita divorce rate in the country.

Since the inception, other churches in this area have caught the vision and are giving meaningful support.

Currently we minister to underprivileged children and teenagers (newborn to 18 years old) with love, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, skills-training, nutritional food and meaningful programmes. We believe that by reaching the next generation we can make a positive impact on the community of George and surrounding area and South Africa.

Our Vision: To mobilise local and overseas churches, foundations, businesses and individuals to give of their time and resources for the establishment of services to sections of the communities with the greatest needs. To establish LIFE CARE CENTERS in neediest communities. This enable us to bring resources to the point of need and provide a platform from where the Gospel can proceed. Life Community Services, seek to establish and provide to the society, integrated community based services that strengthen the family, believing that every person is unique and capable of reaching his or her highest potential. We see that this can successfully be done in the realm of a Christian outreach to the whole person (mind, spirit, soul and body).

Today I am walking in total thankfulness for GRACE from the Lord toward us as His children. One of the really horrible consequences of sin is the barrier people erected around themselves. Today I witnessed our team with no barriers and simply being an A-TEAM.
Denzel and Natily's Liton was being buried. The team rallied and did it all. The team catered for about two hundred people, they served and cleaned; made sandwiches; they drove, picked up, dropped off (staff, catering equipment and food) on top of EVERYTHING they kept the normal duties going. The Market had to run, the pick-ups had to happen; staff and goods taken to the Market and funeral ...... thank you: Eldrique ; Neville, Andile,Philip ; Sally, Nezzi, Loretta, Francis; Mavis Gerhard; Philip, Aaron. Then the captain of the "raggamuffin" catering A -team, our beloved Juanita. No one stopped till all was done; no thanks me complained and when we left everyone was smiling....Thank you. May the Lord reward you for your willingness to be part of our A-TEAM. You are a blessing. I could not be prouder than what I was to have you as part of the team. You ARE the A-Team!!!

Rest In Peace little Liton
