Who We Are

Changing lives that change the world

Meet our team

Esmé Schmitt is the founder of Esmé Schmitt Ministries.  Together with many volunteers, we host several events and other aspects of the ministry.  My sister, Leandra Scheepers, is an avid volunteer for the ministry.  She helps to organise conferences and other events.  You might get an email from her when you contact the ministry.  Over the years several volunteers (from many nations of the world) have also joined the ministry.  We truly value and appreciate these volunteers.

Leandra Scheepers daughter, Maia Scheepers, is also an active part of the ministry.  She is a tween who loves God passionately.  She serves at the conferences and help to minister at different events.

Meet the Transformerz team!

Transformerz is a ministry to tweens and youth from Grades 4 to 10.  This ministry consists of the Transformerz Leadership Academy and the Transformerz Club.  We have a fun, very creative and exciting team that helps to organise these events.

Meet Esmé's Ministry Team

Esmé is raising up children, tweens and teenagers who are called to ministry – especially to serve in the five-fold ministry.  This year Esmé has officially taken in three Transformerz to serve in her team.  They are Maia, Wilmari and Ruth.

Who is Esmé Schmitt Ministries?

We are called to live life abundantly.  God has given us a good future filled with hope and He wants to grant us the desires of our heart.

I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.”  John 10:10

One of the purposes of the cross was to take away our shame, guilt and fear so that we can know the liberating love of God.  We are seated in Christ, in the heavenlies.  And since Christ is seated on the right hand of the Father, it also means that we are sitting right next to our Father…and that is why we can know exactly how much He loves us and likes us and how He sees and think about us.  When we then start to belief, act on and live the way God sees us and made us, we truly can life life abundantly. How glorious is this!

Esmé Schmitt ministries believes that this message is multi-generational.  It includes children, tweens, teenagers, young adults and all adults.  When we parent or work with children, God is calling us into maturity…to move into that abundance and to lead our children there too.  At Esmé Schmitt ministry we refer to this as raising transformers; meaning raising children to:

  • be transformed themselves (to know the love of God, to know who they are, to know their purpose and to walk with God)
  • naturally live a supernatural lifestyle and to demonstrate the Power of the Holy Spirit in such a way that it transform their families, schools and society.

Hebrews 5:12 says “In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food!”  It is time for us to progress onto solid food and become the teachers (mentors) we are each called to be.  Esmé Schmitt Ministries wants to empower the body of Christ to raise spiritually mature Christians who will become disciple makers (mentors) themselves. This especially includes raising children, tweens and teenagers into and toward spiritual maturity.  God is calling each Christian to mentor others into a victorious life!

What do we believe?

Esmé Schmitt Ministries is a Bible based ministry that holds the gospel of Jesus central to its core.  We belief and give action to the following:

  • We are called to live naturally supernaturally lives. The Holy Spirit empowers us to do signs, miracles and wonders like healing the sick and raising the dead. (Matthew 10:8)
  • God has a good plan for our lives. It is His desire for us to live our purpose. (John 3:16)
  • We walk in the fear of the Lord (Proverbs 1:7) and seek God’s Wisdom at all times. (Proverbs 4:6)
