Pastor Gerhard "Obee" Oberholzer's Testimony

I grew up in a Christian home, but my personal testimony starts with my confirmation of faith in Jesus Christ during the month of November in 1983 in the Dutch Reformed Church Heuwelsig in Bloemfontein, South Africa. Since then my faith in Jesus grew by His grace and understanding that He took the initiative to invite me into a personal relationship with Him.

God called me into ministry, during my two years of National service in Namibia on the border of Angola, by using His Word and to be specific - Rom.12:1 and 2. It took me eleven months to answer on His call. I had a personal encounter with our God one night/ early morning at the end of 1986, when I saw the sunrise in a “shona” in Africa and our Father confirmed His call of eleven months earlier in a special way. In January 1987 I enrolled as a first year Theology student at the University of Pretoria.
