It all started with Terri Hannie.

A passionate, bold, tenacious, effective, humorous, confident crusader, wife and mother of 5 are a few words used to describe the passion she has to see others reach their full potential in order to Live Significantly.

Whether it’s through writing, speaking, or having a coffee date, she loves spurring other women on and wants to leave her generation more in awe of God than she found it. She’s the co-founders of Victory Praise Chapel and Keep the dream193; the founder and president of Women of Substance SA.

In 1992, she responded to the Lord’s call to ministry in Johannesburg Christian Family Church where she finally graduated from Bible School later in the Cape Town branch after relocating and was ordained as Pastor in 1997. Prior to being called into full time ministry, Terri was employed by UCT Faculty of Health Sciences and was acclaimed for her work in Academic Administration and Human Resources.

Terri began ministry on the pastoral staff at Christian Family Church, a large multi-cultural assembly in Cape Town in 1996. Since 2007 she devoted herself full-time to ministry as an itinerant under the banner of Victory Praise Chapel: Women of Substance SA.

God has opened doors for Terri to conduct conferences and evangelistic services internationally. Her compelling ministry and dynamic delivery have resulted in invitations to preach in such settings as church conferences, crusades, evangelistic & mission’s crusades, women’s conventions & retreats.

A Woman of Substance, (Now faith is the SUBSTANCE of what we hope for and the certainty of what we do not see. (Hebrews 11:1)

Women of Substance has over the years grown from strength to strength and have successfully hosted and conducted numerous events, conferences seminars and workshops.

Today Women of Substance is an established leaders and role-player in transforming lives with many many testimonial from individuals that have been take from brokenness to wholeness and who are now all benefiting from the original vision and mandate that Terri received.
