We see in the Word of God that every believer is part of the body of Christ and that every believer has both a purpose and a calling. Our focus is to preach the Gospel so that the lost sheep can be brought home. Once they are home we want to disciple them to know God and fully pursue their purpose and calling.

We want to make a difference by making the King known!


Establishing a multicultural, multiracial, Christ-centered organization focused on loving people, preaching the Gospel, making disciples, empowering people and uplifting communities.


 Reconciling the lost, discipling the saved, being obedient to His Word and committed to His calling.


Preach, Teach, Empower...Repeat

Frank & Nicole Bouwer



From the very beginning of their walk with the Lord, Frank and Nicole have known that they are called for the nations. They got married in 2014 and have been blessed with a son (born in 2016) and a daughter (born in 2019). They started working in full-time ministry in 2016, serving as leaders in Living Word Durbanville for two years and having the privilege of pastoring Living Word Paarl from 2018 to 2021. Common Ground Ministries was founded in February 2021 and will be the base from where their ministry will sprout in any and all directions God leads them. The aim of Common Ground will be to preach the Gospel in every nation, to disciple people and then equip them to both uplift their communities and advance the Kingdom of God. Frank and Nicole want to ignite the same fire in others that God has birthed in their spirits. Their primary purpose is to worship God in all they do.

Our creed and core values are firmly rooted in the Word of God.
