Personal Background

Johan was born in Benoni in 1961 and grew up in Vereeniging in a parsonage. He was in Laerskool Handhawer and matriculated from the Hoërskool Vereeniging. After matric, he studied education at what was then known as P.U. for C.H.O. (PUKKE).

In 1983, Johan married Hannalie and had two wonderful children from the marriage. Both children are now married with great partners.
The first teaching position was held at the Laerskool Emfulenipark in Vanderbijlpark. He then went on to the Hoërskool Vereeniging.
Singing was always part of his life and the house in which he grew up. His musical training was classical in nature, but he began to sing “Gospel Music” during his years as a teacher.

At the age of 10, Johan already felt that God had called him to be a part of His ministry, however initially he felt like running away from this calling.
However, in 1989 he and Hannalie attended a prayer seminar that was hosted by Francois Vosloo from Operation Mobilization. Here the Holy Spirit spoke clearly to both Johan and Hannalie and they started seeking the Lord’s guidance. The Spirit lead them to the decision that Johan had to study further and in obedience to this revelation he qualified as a minister.

After six years of working in education, Johan resigned and moved to Stellenbosch, where he completed his B.Th. degree at the University of Stellenbosch. After his theological studies, he was appointed to the NG Elarduspark in the east of Pretoria, where he was a pastor for 13 years. He also has since completed his M.Th. (Christian Spirituality) from UNISA. To further his studies, Johan completed his D.Div degree (Practical Theology and Messianic studies) at the Calvary University, USA achieved in 2008.

Johan resigned as minister at the end of April 2008 and started doing full time ministry through retreats, music ministry, prayer and other seminars. He is currently part of the team at Jericho Walls International Prayer Network ( Mobilization of prayer is the main focus of this organisation.

Johan is a member of the D.R. Church Moreletapark, Pretoria, South Africa and is also affiliated with the organization, Christian Fellowship of Ministries, and an ordained minister and marriage officiant. The inauguration event took place on August 26, 2012.
He believes his central mission is to help the bride of Christ prepare for His coming. So he welcomes work with all Christian Churches to live out this calling.
