Clean Heart Ministries - About Clean Heart Ministries


About us

A brief introduction:

Clean Heart Ministries was launched onto the internet on 18 June 2012. Although our web presence is relatively new, our "ministry heart" has been "fired up" since the early 1980's and we've been active in or participating in various forms of ministry since the late 1980's.

The concept for Clean Heart Ministries was born early in 2012, yet has been actively stirring in the heart of its founder for many years. To honestly confess, although the heart often conceives of the bounty of God and His visions are formed within, it is our minds that reject what God has formed within our hearts. The founder had to specifically repent of the fears within his mind and repent of his lack of faith. Only after this process of repentance did it eventually bring about this internet based ministry.

Where we from:

We are based in a northern suburb of Cape Town, South Africa where we have grown up in a culturally diverse community of many races and languages.

Who we are:

Bernard Procter is the founder of Clean Heart Ministries. Born on the 9th of August 1967, Bernard grew up in a free thinking, atheist-slanted family, with a sparse mix of family members following a faith in God in a very limited way. Having said that, Bernard's parents, by the Grace of God, created a very loving home for him and his two older siblings. His brother Richard and sister Belinda are respectively eight and seven years older than Bernard leaving him growing up almost with the experience of an only child.

Early in 1983 Bernard joined his local Methodist Church of SA, confirmation group and was initially driven to cause as much disruption within the confirmation group as possible, given that he only joined the group believing that he would perhaps one day need to be confirmed if he wanted to get married. The group leader often had to "throw" Bernard out of the meetings as a form of discipline due to Bernard's constant bad attitude and disruptions.
Somewhere during 1983 with the continued exposure to his first ever Christian related meetings and the compulsory church attendance, required for confirmation, the Lord moved within Bernard's life. In September 1983, Bernard had a personal experience of the Lord's presence during a time of personal prayer and repented and gave his life fully to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

We still trying to figure out how best to present this information, so for now we praying about it. It is a soul searching experience putting this down in writing.

More to follow at a later stage ...
