Breakthru Worship School
John Crumpton's encounter with God and call to become ‘a pastor to pastors’, happened in the late seventies whilst he was a youngster. A few years later, while seeking the Lord about what His plans were for his life, two themes stood out strongly. One of them was worship.
After school John studied a B.Com, worked in the IT sector both locally and internationally, studied theology and served in the local church in East London. During his time abroad, John served as the worship leader in Atlanta, Georgia, growing in and continuing to fulfill the word he had received from the Lord all those years ago. Being the son of Derek Crumpton, John had grown up ‘in ministry’ but he and his wife Lisa, a prophetic artist, moved to Johannesburg to lead Breakthru Life Church in 2002.
The rest is history: a thriving local congregation along with John’s heart to love and serve God and the body of Christ with cutting edge international ministries (i.e. Let Us Worship South Africa with Sean Feucht, Kingdom Come SA Conferences with Bill Johnson).
