|Dave and Elbie Basson got saved in 1982, and right from the start felt the call of God on their lives. They were involved in ministry in the Pentecostal movement, as well as revival under some of the great evangelists of that time. They experienced the move of God and the great outpouring of the Spirit in South Africa.
They were very involved in youth ministry and led various youth groups across South Africa.
In 1991 they moved to the small town of Malmesbury, located 70km from Cape Town in the Western Cape Province. It was here where the Spirit led Dave to start planting churches in the Boland area. During this season an incredible outpouring of the Spirit was experienced that touched many lives. In 1996 they moved to Witbank in the north east of South Africa. Seven years later God called them out of the denomination they were serving at to plant new churches in the Cape Town area. Many prophetic words confirmed this move and in 2004 Kingdom Light Church was established in the sea side town of Strand. In a very short time a further 5 campuses evolved from the initial church plant. In 2015 Dave handed the reigns of the ministry over to his son Shawn.
Dave is a prophetic teacher and the spiritual father over the Kingdom Network. He actively continues in ministry and ministers into the lives of and mentors many young pastors and leaders.
