Founded in September 1979 by Senior Pastor Dr. Theo Wolmarans and his wife Beverley, Christian Family Church International Johannesburg is one of the largest churches of its kind in Southern Africa.
Pastor Theo is an anointed teacher who presents the Word of God with complete clarity and simplicity, bringing understanding to every heart and mind while simultaneously captivating the audience with his bold, dynamic style.
As a leading international minister and a member of the board of Dr. David Yongi Cho’s Church Growth International, Pastor Theo is a much sought after speaker for churches throughout the world. Through his apostolic calling, he is responsible for the formation of many churches throughout Africa and various parts of the world, including the United States.
Pastor Theo and Beverley, along with more than 250 Christian Family Church associates birthed out of this ministry, also have a memorandum of association with the Apostolic Faith Mission of South Africa, founded by John G. Lake. This association now has more than 1,400 churches.
Some time ago the Lord led Pastors Theo and Beverley to found another church in America, and after many years of prayer and guidance from the Holy Spirit, Christian Family Church San Antonio was birthed. In just a few short years, more than 1,600 people call Christian Family Church San Antonio their home church. The congregation has already experienced many signs and wonders through the couple’s ministry.
Pastors Theo and Beverley reside in San Antonio, Texas, although they periodically travel to South Africa to look after the church in Johannesburg. Pastor Theo also provides apostolic oversight to the more than 250 Christian Family Churches worldwide, along with many missionaries, evangelists, and traveling Bible teachers who have all been birthed out of the Christian Family Church network.
Pastor Theo believes deeply in spending much time in prayer and God’s Word. The most important thing in his life is to know the will of God in all his decisions.
