As previously communicated, we have been looking to hire an additional pastor to supplement our pastoral team.
We are excited to announce that Chris Lejeune will be joining the pastoral team with effect from 1 February 2018. Chris' primary responsibility will be leading our Gospel Community ministry and performing general pastoral duties.
Chris was born and raised in Johannesburg and, until recently, served as an Assistant Pastor and elder at Redeemer Church of Dubai for 6 years. Some facts about Chris and his family:
- He is 34 years of age
- He is married to Nicky who is a photographer
- They have two daughters, Eva (5) and Phoebe (1)
- He enjoys good coffee and old books
- He has worked on travelling amusement parks throughout the USA and Canada.
Chris has a deep desire for people to understand the Gospel and experience the joy of faith in Christ. He especially enjoys coming alongside believers in their spiritual journeys and encouraging them to a deeper faith. We look forward to his ministry amongst the BBC family.
We will be welcoming Chris and Nicky into the BBC family at our Sunday services on 4 February 2018, so please join us on this special occasion. We also encourage you to pray for Chris and Nicky as they relocate from Dubai to Johannesburg, and settle back into life in South Africa.
