Drs Theo & Beverley Wolmarans

Our Pastors



Christian Family Church International Johannesburg, founded in September 1979 by Senior Pastor Dr. Theo Wolmarans and his wife Beverley, is one of the largest churches of its kind in Southern Africa.


Dr. Theo is an anointed teacher who presents the Word of God with complete clarity and simplicity, bringing understanding to every heart and mind while simultaneously captivating the audience with his bold, dynamic style. 


Through his apostolic calling, Dr. Theo is responsible for the formation of many churches throughout Africa and various parts of the world, including the United States. As a result, he provides apostolic oversight to the more than 1,500 Christian Family Churches and over 120 Bible Colleges worldwide, along with many missionaries, evangelists, and traveling Bible teachers who have all been birthed out of the Christian Family Church network. 


Christian Family Church also has a memorandum of association with the Apostolic Faith Mission of South Africa, founded by John G. Lake. This association now has more than 2,000 churches. Dr. Theo is a leading international minister and a member of the board of Dr. David Yongi Cho’s Church Growth International.


Some time ago, the Lord led Drs. Theo and Beverley to found another church in America, and after many years of prayer and guidance from the Holy Spirit, Christian Family Church San Antonio was established. Drs. Theo and Beverley pastor the church in JHB RSA even though they reside in San Antonio, Texas. They travel to Christian Family Church JHB in South Africa two or three times a year.


Dr. Theo believes deeply in spending much time in prayer and God’s Word. The most important thing in his life is to know the will of God in all his decisions.



Pastor Beverley, together with her husband Apostle Theo, established Christian Family Church International in September 1979 and has played a vital role in its growth and development. As a gifted preacher and encourager, Pastor Beverley shares the wisdom she has gained as a wife, mother, and grandmother with passion and practicality, often infused with her unique blend of humor and boldness. Through her own life experiences, she imparts messages of hope and encouragement.


Pastor Beverley is deeply committed to empowering and inspiring women to discover their true identity in Christ. She takes joy in seeing women embrace their unique purposes and journey in faith with confidence and joy, utilizing their God-given gifts to overcome challenges. She spearheads Significance, a women's movement that encourages and equips women to fulfill all that God has for them.


Before entering ministry, she studied at Christ for the Nations in Dallas, Texas. Pastor Beverley is also dedicated to championing the cause of orphans, particularly in Africa, where the need is most urgent. She enjoys visiting and bringing love and compassion to children whenever possible.


Apostle Theo and Beverley Wolmarans are proud parents of daughters Natalie (married to Lance Key) and Candace (married to Travis Barnes), and they have been blessed with seven grandchildren.

Additionally, Apostle Theo’s eldest daughter, Shilo, is married to Paul Peska, and they reside in Australia with their two children.
