About This Project

Gerhard and Melanie Weich have served many years in missions in various nations, with the past twenty in Cape Town, South Africa. They are the founders and directors of a prophetic ministry, Bethesda House, that facilitates encounters with Jesus, restorative ministry and equipping for the spiritually hungry, to catapult each person towards their role in the Great Commission.  

Gerhard and Melanie’s main focusses are: 

·         Overall leadership of Bethesda House, its programs and staff 

·         Facilitation of yearly ‘Leading by the Spirit Course’ (LBSC) 

·         Oversight of restorative ministry programs as well as Encounter worship events 

·         Leadership consultancy to Bethesda Global Staff and LBSC alumni 

·         Oversight of Bethesda Fellowships (house churches) in various nations 

·         Periodic travel to minister 

The Weich family continually trust the Lord for daily provision to serve in fulltime ministry. Bethesda House Ministries and all its staff raise their own support to provide ministry free of charge. Partnering through prayer and regular/one time giving enables the Weich family to continue serving in South Africa and internationally.
