  • Sermon or series that made a difference: Denying of self; Kingdom Message; Seek first His righteousness; The I am Principle

  • Family: Chantál my wife of 26 years
  • What my parents think of my sermons: Informative, interesting, and possibly too long.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: I’m my husband’s most devoted disciple. He’s taught me so many practical truths. He is a great student of God’s word, very teachable, knowledgeable. It’s easy to listen to someone who’se devoted his life to Christ. I imitate him, as he imitates Christ. Chantál Oosthuizen, 3 October 2017.

  • Something funny that happened while preaching: The pew broke under the weight of my fan-club from the Old age home, when they stood up together to respond to the altar call.
  • What I want on my tombstone: Disciple and follower of Jesus, lifelong learner and discoverer, a father and a son, a reformer and one continually being reformed into the Image of Christ.
