JUDEA LEADERSHIP

DR LOUIS BLOM

After completing his Engineering Studies in Industrial Electronics/Instrumentation NTS 5, Louis felt the call of God to the ministry. He completed his theological training in 1991 at the Auckland Park Theological Seminary. Dr Louis Blom has been in the ministry for the past 30 years. After pastoring in two local churches, with the AFM of SA in Kempton Park for 10 years, he co-founded Judea Harvest in 1999.

During the past 30 years Louis has travelled the world extensively, preaching and mobilising the body of Christ for the harvest in more than 30 nations. Louis continued his post graduate studies at the University of Johannesburg (UJ) and completed his Honours Degree in 2001 and his Master’s Degree in 2004. His Master’s Degree focused on understanding the culture of the people in the continent of Africa and how culture meets gospel. He completed his Doctoral Thesis on Evangelism Strategies for Africa with the University of Johannesburg (UJ) in 2009, which confirms his passion for the gospel and the people of Africa.

Dr Louis Blom was a co-founder of Judea Harvest in 1999 along with Pastor Hansie Henning, the founder and has been blessed and privileged to work with Judea ever since. Dr Louis Blom started Judea Hope, the development division of Judea Harvest in 2006. Africa is plagued by my problems, such as the HIV/AIDS pandemic, poverty, corruption and a lack of education. Judea Hope has embarked on a number of initiatives to meet the needs of the children in the communities. We have 1300 child care centres in our network of tents and churches. In these care centres they feed, educate and care for the vulnerable children.

Dr Louis Blom also founded Judea Training in 2013 with the main focus on training the hundreds and thousands of untrained African pastors. Judea Training has been extremely successful and impactful in this work; however, we have a mammoth task as research shows that there are more than a million untrained African pastors doing ministry without formal training. Louis lives to see the Lord’s great harvest gathered in Africa.

DR DANIE REYNECKE

Danie travels extensively throughout Southern Africa, Eastern and Western Africa, North America and Asia, where he nurtures and develops many associations. The main aim of his ministry revolves around Biblical Giving. This topic motivated him to complete his PhD at the University of Johannesburg on The Funding of the Church According to the Book of Acts: Socialistic or capitalistic? Can this model of giving be developed and defended that promotes and integrates the believer and autonomous agent, who, as such may be led by the Holy Spirit to give up all his possessions in support of the work of the Lord? (2009).

Danie’s first book in 2003, Saai Om Te Maai – Geheim van Finansiële Sukses (Sowing for Reaping) sold more than 35 000 copies in South Africa. Danie is also the author of My Alles Vir Jesus – a 45 Day-to-day Journey Regarding Stewardship in partnership with ToekomsVenster. Funding the Church is answering the question of how the believer should use his money to support the work of the Lord. Danie was also a guest speaker on East Rand Stereo radio for many years and presented his own Christian television talk show called Kruis Aktueel on Kruiskyk TV. Danie was born on 16 July 1964 in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. After humble beginnings, he showed leadership at an early age by becoming school prefect, captaining different sports teams and also becoming President of the Afrikaans Christian Youth Association.

After completing High School (Marlow), he completed his military training and became an Infantry Officer in the SADF, serving in the SA Busch War from 1983-1985. Danie completed his theological diploma at the AFM Seminary in 1994, where he also served as the Vice President of the Student Council. Danie served as Senior Pastor at AFM Primrose from 1996 – 1999.

Harvest Team and was instrumental in raising more than R200 million for the extension of God’s Kingdom over the last 15 years
