Who we are


Voice in the City Ministries is an interdenominational and international missions organisation. Our heart is to share Christ’s love with those around us; whether that is at home or abroad. Our vision is for the nations yet with a heart for the individual, reaching out with the same passion to one soul as to the masses.

Under the leadership of Rev Dr Suzette Hattingh and Rev Gayle Claxton, the Voice in the City Team operates as a voice of hope and love across multiple nations. Our desire is to see the power of God move in this generation. Our mandate and calling is to equally reach out to the lost through Gospel outreaches combined with ministry of helps and equipping the body of Christ through motivational teaching. Our desire is to see God’s kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven.

Our Founders

Suzette Hattingh

As well as worldwide evangelistic campaigns, Suzette has a strong call from the Lord to concentrate on cities and local communities. Under the banner of servanthood, she reaches out with the same passion to one soul as to a million. Although a passionate evangelist, Suzette is also gifted in edifying and equipping the body of Christ through motivational preaching and teaching.

Gayle Claxton

Gayle’s humorous yet down-to-earth- and effective style of teaching has resulted in her being a highly sought after conference speaker. Her anointed teachings, both written and spoken, carry an authority and anointing clearly endorsed through years of experience.

Our Six-Fold Vision

Prayer

Teaching the body of Christ how to make prayer a lifestyle through conferences, seminars and Prayer Schools in conjunction with our work book.

“My house will be called a house of Prayer for all Nations. – Mark 11:17

Healing

As healing is a finished part of the work of redemption on the cross we minister with equal compassion to the sick as to the lost.

“It is not the healthy that need a Doctor, but the sick. – Mark 2:17

Evangelism

We will walk through every door of opportunity to reach the lost and broken hearted through mass evangelistic outreaches or one to one encounters. This is and remains the core focus of the Cross and the heart beat of this ministry.

“Go into all the world. – Mark 16:15

Ministry of Helps

Living out acts of kindness to the poor and needy is part of our passion and call, be it through caring for the orphans in our Children’s homes or the lonely hearted in prisons. We want to practically show the love of Jesus to everyone irrespective of their walk of life.

“He who is kind to the poor lends to the Lord. – Proverbs 19:17

Training

With practical teaching and application we inspire the body of Christ to take what they are taught outside the church or seminar walls and apply it to their daily lives.

“The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life. – Proverbs 13:14

Online Teaching

Part of our mandate is to teach the body of Christ the simplistic yet profound truths of scripture. As the Covid-19 pandemic hit the entire world in 2020, this mandate became a challenge as we no longer could travel and minister face to face. With this in mind we sought the Lord and felt that we needed to use the resources that we had at hand, which was and is the Internet. We aim to reach as many nations as possible with powerful, life-changing online courses and teachings and this will remain a vein of vital ministry in the future.
 
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” Matthew 28:19

We believe:

  • THE BIBLE is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written Word of God.
  • There is ONE GOD, eternally existent in three Persons:
    • God the Father
    • God the Son
    • God the Holy Spirit
  • In the Deity of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right Hand of the Father, His personal future return to this earth in power and glory to rule.
  • The only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • Regeneration by the HOLY SPIRIT is essential for personal salvation.
  • The redemptive work of Christ on THE CROSS provides healing for the body in response to believing prayer.
  • The BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it, with the evidence of “speaking in tongues”.
  • In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is able to live a HOLY LIFE.
  • In the RESURRECTION of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation.
