Rob and Glenda Rufus are the father & mother and pastors of City Church International. They have raised three children, who all serve the Lord, Jay, Ryan and Bonnie and have been married since 1975. They grew up in South Africa where they planted their first church in their early twenties, called Victory Faith Center in Pinetown, Kwa-Zulu Natal. Experiencing the power of God moving strongly with incredible healings, signs and wonders, the church quickly grew to over 700 people within a few years. As a church, they were able to raise enough money to purchase its own land and 2000 seater building only 5 minutes from the city center, and payed for everything in cash. After leading for twelve years Rob and Glenda felt the call to Australia.
In Adelaide, South Australia, Rob and Glenda co-led Coastlands International Christian Center for three years with Dudley and Anne Daniel and then took on the full time leadership of the church, leading for a further seven years. It grew from 300 to over 1500 members within the ten years of their leadership acquiring a large property and a beautiful church building. Again they saw incredible miracles through their hands and notable cases of people being healed of severe illnesses become regular. In one case, a lady interviewed on prime-time national news for her incurable and terminal illness, came to church, got delivered and healed with God restoring her live, children and health. The news channel were so shocked at the impossibility, they re-interviewed this lady along with Rob and Glenda in church preaching the gospel. After handing over the leadership of Coastlands in 2001, they traveled apostolically internationally for 3 years ministering in Churches, conferences and crusades worldwide.
Then they felt the call of God to Asia. So again, obeying the voice of God, left for Hong Kong to found and start City Church International in July 2004. Rob and Glenda are loved by City Church and are raising up a powerful community of people that are filled with the love and grace of God. CCI has some of the most incredibly servant hearted and faith filled people you’ll ever meet. Their ministry is also growing in profile around the world, as they travel to many countries every year ministering the Gospel of Gods grace and helping to build local churches everywhere.
