South African of German origin, I am English, German and Afrikaans
Many years ago, while still an artisan, I became involved in
youth work to such an extent that I decided to be fully trained
as a pastor.
I studied theology in Germany and South Africa and was ordained
as minister of the Evangelical-Lutheran Church in Southern Africa,
thereby also becoming a licensed Marriage Officer. I have served
in several congregations throughout KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng
until my early retirement for health reasons in 1998.
since, I have carried on with the part of my work that I enjoy
most: working with couples on an individual basis, preparing
them for a lifetime together. In this way, I can pass on counselling
experience of many years which I find very rewarding.
I am also doing relief work in congregations around Gauteng
and beyond, the main focus is on weddings.
people from around the world and every walk of life is what
makes this an especially enjoyable task, and I am looking forward
to continually offering my services in the future.
