Apostle Simon Mokoena is indeed a multi-talented man, he is an author, musician, preacher, teacher, humanitarian, poet and TV presenter. He was born in eNthuzuma in Kwa-Zulu Natal province.
He has been in the ministry for 30 years. Having attended Rhema Bible College, he started the Show-Tell Bible Church in Qwaqwa, where he was the pastor for 15 years.
From the inception of the Show-Tell Bible Church, Apostle Mokoena knew in his spirit that he had to make the transition into the Apostolic calling.
In 1998, Apostle Mokoena attended a conference in Port Elizabeth, where he met Apostle John Eckhardt from Chicago, USA who gave him a prophecy, which inspired him to follow his true calling.
Apostle Eckhardt said Son,” I have given you a vision which is beyond religion and beyond tradition. I’ve called you to draw near to the anointing. Son, I am going to teach you what it means to walk in the Apostolic Anointing and in the Apostolic Vision and you are going to believe me for a change, even to impart to that region with powerful anointing and to shake that territory, for man called it Free State, but I am going to release it in the liberty of the Holy Ghost, it shall not be Free State in name only but I am going to cause liberty in the spirit to come and I am going to call men and women to know the liberty of the Spirit and they are going to prophecy, preach, rejoice and plant churches. I’ll put a new strategy in your hands and give you wisdom to pioneer new things in that territory said God… and you are going to build a new standard of ministry, a model church that others can come to look at, and duplicate yourself…’Thus said the Lord”!
