PASTOR AT BOSHOFF
Born in 1964, At Boshoff grew up in Bloemfontein. In 1986 he received the call into ministry and completed three years of Bible school in the local Church. He immediately started on a road of Christian service within his local Church, which led him to youth outreaches in his hometown and missionary trips into Africa. Together with his wife Pastor Nyretta, he founded a very successful Church in Ladybrand which led to the establishing of CRC Bloemfontein in 1994.
One characteristic of Pastor At's ministry is his determination to build beautiful and functional state-of-the-art facilities on a cash-built basis. In Ladybrand, he successfully launched and completed the building project of a Church auditorium and a large pre-school debt free.
The exemplary Bloemfontein facilities were built debt free and include a magnificent 5500 seater auditorium, a 600 seater chapel as well as ultra-modern and advanced youth, children’s and training facilities. The extensive administration and media centre is technologically advanced and depicts CRC's use of technology to build ‘’One Church, Many Locations’’. Pastor At has become known for his bold faith and courageous nature, in pursuing and completing large building projects debt free.
CRC's net is widely cast out and is established in Bloemfontein, Pretoria and Johannesburg along with 90 national and international CRC Churches worldwide, executing the mission of "One Church, Many Locations".
CRC Pretoria was launched in 2004 with the vision to reach more people with the good News of Jesus Christ. Since the inception and rapid growth of the congregation, moving from a school hall to a 1500 seater tent auditorium, Pastor At set out to establish a state-of-the-art 7000 seater auditorium! The once again debt-free project was driven by Pastor At through many faithful givers, understanding that the purpose of their lives is to build for generations to come. The new, spectacular building was launched in February 2014 and has become the epicentre to thousands of families and a sanctuary where all people in the community are cared for and discipled.
Pastor At is on the Senior National Executive Board for the I.F.C.C. (International Federation of Christian Churches), which is a body of several hundred churches under the Presidency of Rev. Ray McCauley (Rhema Church, South Africa). He is a greatly sought-after speaker, both nationally and internationally and can be seen weekly on TBN, CTV and Rhema TV.
Pastor At is described as focused, passionate and fervent in his hunger for the Word of God and explosive in his dynamic teaching of it. His powerful, bold and practical messages are equally refreshing in relevance to authenticity and doctrinal accuracy.
