At birth, with a small heart struggling to find its beat, my mother prayerfully dedicated me to be in the Lord’s service. He graciously granted me LIFE! Privileged to grow up in a Christian home and family, I was guided by the Holy Spirit to finally accept Jesus as my personal Saviour at age 15. Not long after that, I was called into full-time theological studies with the aim of being a missionary. The Stellenbosch Theological Seminary (1972 – 1979) was the institution that led me into the wonders of the Word of God and contemplation about the message thereof – always with sharing the Gospel with people of other cultures and languages in mind.
After a Masters Degree in Clinical Pastorate during 1979, married to Ottilie Serfontein, a minister’s daughter, in June 1978, we received a call to start ministering in the Dutch Reformed Church in Africa (now Uniting Reformed Church) Ngqushwa (Peddie, Eastern Cape), in 1980. Ministering for 5 years in a Xhosa-speaking congregation was a wonderful, formative experience. Seeing myself as someone who also want to build bridges amongst different people groups in South Africa, I eventually accepted a call to the Dutch Reformed Church Fort Beaufort in 1985, where we served full-time for 15 years. We have 3 gifted children: Lambert (architect, Bloemfontein), Ottilie (food scientist, married to businessman Jacques le Roux – little girl Amèlie) close to us in Cape Town, and Wilhelm (property administrator, married to teacher Bronwyn Ellis) in Johannesburg.
The missionary endeavour did not leave me. I became more and more convinced that the Christian Church, and therefore every group or congregation, is not supposed to exist club-like only for itself, but for being a light of God in the world. That conviction made me to trust the Lord for our living expenses while taking part in full-time missionary activities – first as part of ProChristo Global Mission (Kimberley) from 2000 till 2002; then within DRC-structures in and around Fort Beaufort; then as support raiser for FEBA Radio (Far East Broadcasting Association) in the Eastern Cape (2004), and since 2006 the Western Cape. In 2013 the Lord guided me also to be an associate of thePLAN. Although part-time and voluntary within FEBA Radio and thePLAN today, it is still my dream to assist the church in BEING A DIFFERENCE also MAKING A DIFFERENCE in society and the world.

I was born and raised in Pretoria, the third of five siblings. I grew up in a home where both my parents were Christians. I am married to Jurita and have three daughters, Charlotte, Sulani and Jute. While listening to a well known missionary from Japan, Neil Verwey, at the age of thirteen, I received the calling to become a minister. The calling was actually to be a missionary myself, but at that time I thought the only way to work for the Lord was to study Theology and become a minister.
After my studies I became a minister to the Dutch Reformed Church. I worked in Windhoek, Namibia and then in Moreletapark Pretoria for a period of 23 years. I was most of the time involved in mobilizing the church into missionary work. During this time I realised that it was not only Theological qualified ministers that can work for the Lord, but it is actually the calling for every member of the church.
I started a Church Planting school in 2008 at Vastfontein, a small holding fifty kilometres North of Pretoria. We train people mainly from the townships to start a faith community wherever they are. It can either be in their workplace, neighbourhood or community. Because I belief in the church, it is important to saturate every community with Bible believing servant leaders that can demonstrate the love of Christ in every possible manner. I resign as a fulltime minister during January 2010, but am still part of the DRC Moreletapark as a tentmaker.
I have joined Frans Hancke and his team at thePlan in helping the mobilization of churches to become a part of Gods Plan as He intended it to be.
I believe that the church can make a difference in transforming communities, if she understands her mandate given by God.

Before moving to Tsabong, TC spent 17 years of his ministry in the DRC in the DRC Hartswater, South Africa. In this congregation he witnessed the growth of a congregation from spiritual stuckness to a visionary church, focusing on making a difference in God's world. According to his testimony the presentation, on two occasions, by dr Frans Hancke of his book "We are the plan" (as seminar), contributed to and enormously stimulated this change in the congregation in Hartswater. TC is promoting the material of thePLAN is a mighty instrument of the Holy Spirit to free the church from stuckness and moving the church to an agent of change in the community and the rest of God's world. He is convinced that DRC Hartwater's choice to stay connected with his ministry and sending him as their missionary to Tsabong, is a testimony of this change.
TC is a co-worker of thePLAN. He is married to Linda and they have two sons and a daughter.

Pastor Johan grew up in Pretoria where, by the grace of God at the age of nineteen, he had an encounter with the Lord Jesus, and accepted Him as Saviour and Lord. Four years later his Theological studies started and in the same year he married Cecile. They entered the Penticostal ministry in 1976 and by Gods grace after fourty one years they are still ministering.
Pastor Johan is called, and has a passion, for the Unity of the Church of Jesus Christ, and this passion opened the door to thePlan organisation at the end of 2013.
In February 2014 he, together with fifteen of the leaders of his Church, enrolled for the workshop "We are the Plan". The missional impact was so remarkable that in 2015 Johan enrolled for the workshop again, this time with six new converts. Again the results was very positive. He then decided to do the "Train the Trainer Course" in order to facilitate these workshops in the future. He completed the one month course during September 2015 and today he promotes the material of thePLAN and facilitates the workshop "We are the Plan" at different churches.
Pastor Johan is a co-worker of thePLAN and since 2016 they reside in Hibberdene, KZN.
