Early Life and Education

Kim Clement was born on 30 September 1956 in Uitenhage, a town in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. He was born to Vivian Clement, who worked as a Superintendent in the South African Railways, and Babette Clement, who ran a small printing business alongside a local doctor’s office where she worked as a receptionist. He had three siblings. He attended Lawson Brown High School in Port Elizabeth. 

Musical Career

Kim was taught music from a very early age. His aunt Isabella taught him classical piano. By age five, he started practicing piano regularly. When he was only 12 years old, Clement and his brother, Barry, formed a band called Mark 4. They performed at small local events. They also performed with other bands and gained recognition in the local music scene. He also toured South Africa with a band called Cosmic Blues, playing keyboard. 

Clement had also released albums such as Where Is the God of Elijah? (2007), Shining Innocent (2009), and Israel Is Forever (2016). Some of his hit songs include ‘Come to My Altar,’ ‘Somewhere In the Future,’ ‘You Will Live Israel,’ and ‘Breathe.’ He also performed in live concerts at Mt. Carmel and New York.

Life-Changing Encounter

Rebellious from an early age, Kim started smoking marijuana in his early teenage years. By the age of 17, he became addicted to the highly dangerous drug called heroin.

Nonetheless, he encountered a life-changing experience during one night in 1974. He was drunk and overdosed on heroin when he was robbed and stabbed in the street. While he was feeling that he was going to die, a Christian man saved him and shared the message of Christ with him. Since then, he became a follower of Christ and dedicated his life to sharing Christ’s message.

Career as a Pastor

After dedicating himself to Christ, Kim was baptized at the Uitenhage Full Gospel Church. He served the church for three years. Between 1976 and 1977, Clement served as a young pastor and music director at various churches. During that time, he also worked as a counselor in a drug rehab facility called Vital Link and trained mentally impaired children helping them to improve by teaching music. 

Kim was working at a local music store where he met Pastor Jimmy Crompton. Crompton offered him a job in his church called Word of Faith in Port Elizabeth. Kim then became the worship and youth leader at the church and became actively involved in street evangelism.

Durban Christian Center

Kim moved to Durban, South Africa, in 1978 and started assisting the Full Gospel Church’s senior Pastor Fred Roberts as a youth and worship pastor. Within a couple of years, he co-founded the first non-racial church in apartheid South Africa called Durban Christian Center, collaborating with Roberts and pastors Neville and Wendy MacDonald. It was during this time when Kim claimed himself as a Prophet. He also gave accurate prophetic words to many people. 

In March 1981, he temporarily went to the USA to attend Christ for the Nations in Dallas, Texas. He also served as an associate pastor at a Baptist Church in Longview, Texas, during that time. After returning to South Africa, he continued assisting at Durban Christian Center. Later, he established his own church called Kim Clement Evangelistic Association. 

Warriors of the New Millenium

In 1991, Kim moved to the USA with his family and soon established a Prophetic Image Expressions ministry. He traveled throughout the United States to many churches and also made frequent television appearances. After breaking both his wrists and being hospitalized in 1993, Clement began to have a new direction for the ministry, Piercing the Darkness. As a result, in 1995, Kim founded Warriors of the New Millenium, a Detroit-based outreach to uplift poor and wounded people of the city, which eventually spread all over the United States.
