“So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.”
Dr Gerhard Venter served as the Pastor of Discipleship & Training at RUC. Previously he was the Principal of The Baptist Theological College in Cape Town. He currently pastors an international church in Bratislava, Slovakia.
