Full-time Senior Pastor of an Afrikaans Assembly situated in Boksburg North.
I am with Elim Pinkster Kerk, (Elim Pentecostal Church although we share the same name as the church group in the UK we are not affiliated), where we took over the pastorate with only 2 families.
We have established a Sunday School, Youth Ministry, appointed Elders and Church Committee. I am committed to growing the local church, building membership through Evangelistic Outreaches, Preaching, Teaching, house visitation, hospital visitation and ministering to the homeless and drug-addicts.
The one area that our assembly is lacking are Intercessors / Prayer Warriors. No matter how much we try to get the older converts to pray, it seems as though do not spend enough time praying.
We need to address the needs of the changing community. What was once an Afrikaans speaking neighbourhood. As in many cities worldwide, the inner city ethnicity has changed. To stay relevant, we have to change our thrust to minister to the community. This is not as easy as it sounds. We need much prayer and intercession. Could I ask that you carry us in prayer in this matter.
What is your primary language?

How did you learn about the AOCI?
Are you a born-again Christian, Messianic Jew, Catholic, or other Christian classification/denomination?
If you are Christian, do you believe in the doctrine of the holy Trinity (God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit)?
As stated in our Statement of Faith, AOCI supports and stands with Israel as God's 'chosen people'. Do you agree with this Biblical doctrine?

Let’s connect pastor, I am a minister of the gospel & passionate about maturity in and unity across the church, especially Africa. I will be in Capetown in November.

I have just released my new book, the Foundations for new believers, it is highly recommended by ministers from many countries as useful in your church teaching program for assimilation of new believers. I look forward to connecting with you.
