Johann and Louise Vanderbijl

Serving In: The Netherlands
Ministry: Church Development

SAMS Role: Missionaries

Home Sending Church: Holy Trinity, North Augusta, SC

Starting Year with SAMS: 2014

Calling to Ministry: Johann's missionary roots trace back to his Great-Grandfather - an Anglican missionary in Southern Africa. The Lord revealed His love and purpose to Johann in 1980 through the witness of an unrelated missionary. Since then, his personal salvation impressed upon him the need to share with others the wonderful gift given to him, especially those lost in their own misfortunes. Johann and Louise met while they were both serving in Northwestern Namibia. Together, they try to seek first His kingdom and His righteousness in whatever God has called them to do.

Since Spring 2022, Johann and Louise are serving at Christ Church Heiloo in the Netherlands.

Mission and Vision for Ministry: Louise and Johann serve according to the Lord’s commands in Genesis 1:28; Matthew 28:18-20, and John 15:8. By His divine guidance and supernatural aid, they are to bring the lost to the Lord, and then to lead them on to maturity. They serve in prayer that new disciples, in their own turn, may do the same with others. It is through bearing much fruit that the nations find healing in Jesus.

Personal Points of Interest: Johann has always loved to read and write, both prose and poetry. He has been led to write what he has learned in the Scriptures - his own experience as a follower of Jesus, as well as in the lives of those he has come in contact with. He loves to dabble in various forms of art when the mood strikes him. Louise is a practical person who loves to be physically active in hands-on activities. As a medical professional, she helps people in practical ways. She is very creative in all things culinary, is an excellent home manager, and loves to garden. Some of her hobbies include reading, knitting, crocheting, hiking, and camping.

Favorite Bible Verse: Johann - Psalm 139; Louise - Psalm 116
