About Denise


Denise Padayachee is a lawyer by training and the founder of Wells Training and Missions NPC. She is based in Cape Town, is hungry for the Presence of God, and desires to see His Kingdom come on earth.

She is passionate about equipping and releasing forerunners and revivalists everywhere; therefore she regularly hosts gatherings/events which have the aim of helping people to discover the love of God, walk in their identity as sons and daughters of the King, live from fullness, and bring the Kingdom.

Denise was a “laatlammetjie”, the youngest of 6 siblings, born into an Indian family in the Midlands of Kwa-Zulu Natal.  Matriculating in 1997 she could enjoy the freedom of the new South Africa by attending Rhodes University to study and gain her LLB.  It was there that she had a supernatural encounter with the living God and her life changed forever.

Since that time Denise has hungered for more (and more) of God, more of His presence and more of His Word; she volunteered for full time ministry with His People Grahamstown from 2005 after receiving a clear call from God into vocational ministry.  Mentored by Kerry Southey, Denise sensed a strong leaning toward prophetic ministry. This gift has been honed significantly over the years, leading to her ordination as a prophet in 2012 in His People Church, City Bowl, where she also served as an associate pastor for several years, working with an inner city community who are diverse in age, socio-economic background and culture.

Since 2013 Denise has been working closely with Journey of Grace Church, Die Bron Kerk and many other churches as well, in line with her passion to serve the Body of Christ at large and train up an army of God-lovers who will step into the supernatural as a natural way of life.

God has graced her with a unique gift mix that enables her to come alongside any group or church that is hungry for More of God, to build relationally and help them dig a well of revival.  She sees it as one of her God-given mandates to help churches transition into revival culture. She creates a safe space for risk-taking and is skilled in activating people into using the gifts of the Spirit. Denise loves cultures and has a lot of experience working in different cultural communities in South Africa and abroad. The many churches and organisations she has worked with recommend her expertise and ministry and you are welcome to request their contact details from us to find out what the fruit is like.

Denise is an international speaker and has worked in America and in many African countries from Uganda to Mozambique and from Botswana to Zimbabwe equipping the saints, freeing the captives, and ministering to vice-presidents and orphans alike with the love of the Father.

Come join us in our future adventures with “Papa” (as Denise affectionately calls God).
