Having spent 20 years in the engineering industry in design and construction of quarrying and mining plant and equipment ore dressing process, I fulfilled my role in both project engineering and consultant to these industries. It was a very challenging and enriching time of my life with the expertise I developed, causing me to travel extensively in Africa and Internationally.
I became a committed Christian in May of 1975 and served as a deacon and Sunday School Teacher for several years in a small Pentecostal church in the south of Johannesburg.
With a hunger and desire for more of God we resettled in a large Charismatic Church in Randburg where we took up the full time call to pastor in January 1984, where Elsabe and I served for 25 years of which 22 years was in the full time pastorate.
During these years we attended Bible School, I did theological studies through Trinity Seminary and developed many courses and learning programs that I still carry in my heart today.
In February 2005 we were invited to join the team at Heritage of Faith Ministries, where I serve in a support role to assist Pastors John and Sharon Bendixen develop and grow their calling and life assignment from the Lord.
I have always enjoyed my support role and am called to be the best possible second in command God has made me. I am clear about my call to pastor and teach the Word, which gives me great enrichment, fulfilment and life purpose as a minister.
I served in a support role to the HFBI team until I was appointed Director of Ministry to HFBI. I am also honoured to serve Heritage of Faith and Affiliate Churches in various areas of Governance and Administration. Today with my experience and qualifications my desire is to help raise the standard and quality of the ministry as a major component of the Heritage of Faith philosophy of ministry.
Having personally completed all Heritage study programs I am a proud student of the Word of God having grown up within this Heritage of Faith with a deep hunger to study for more and more of the truth found within His Holy Scriptures.
2 Timothy 2:15
“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.”
In His loving Service
