So we have the prophetic word made more sure, to which you do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining

in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts (2 Pet 1:19)

Statement of Principles

My commitment to you - Dr Jan van Wyk

    I will to the best of my ability seek to preach those messages the Lord lays upon my heart. While it is likely, as an evangelist, that those messages the Lord most blesses will be repeated in other meetings, I will pray that the Lord will deliver me from preaching "canned sermons". You can rest assured that I will not badger or browbeat your church.
    I am under no compulsion to "produce" decisions and have no record to uphold. I will preach, pray, and minister to the best of my ability and then trust the Lord to give whatever increase he pleases. I promise you there will be no tricks or pressured invitations. They will be clear, to the point, and given in courtesy.  

  I am coming to be your guest. In any way that I can help you, I want to be used. I will place myself in your hands and will do whatever you desire in this area.  

   The sincere pastor who uses an evangelist will realise the special needs of this calling and will lead the church to give a worthy offering. If the Lord has led you to invite me, He will use your integrity to lead you as to the amount He would want you to sow into this ministry .

  If I know my heart, I want to help you as a pastor. One does not spend 43 years in the ministrywithout knowing the heartaches, as well as the joys, of this calling. You can rest in full assurance that I will honour and exalt your ministry before your church

Special Meetings

10 Reasons why they are important

10 Reasons Why A Church Should Have Special Meetings and Use a Guest Speaker

  • It does every church some good once in a while to set aside a few nights for people to come together to seek the Lord for spiritual refreshing and for the souls of the lost. 
  • It is good for the congregation to hear a different voice every so often. The guest speaker complements what the pastor preaches and confirms it in the ears of the listeners. The lay people say, “He is preaching the same thing our pastor does; there must be something to it.”  It gives the guest speaker an opportunity to use his God-given gifts to help edify God’s churches. 
  • It also does the pastor good to occasionally get a break from preaching and the preparation that goes with it. The pastor also is encouraged and challenged by the messages from the guest speaker. The fellowship and sharing between the pastor and guest speaker is helpful to the pastor. The guest speaker can serve as a sounding board for the pastor. He is a truly interested outsider that the pastor can talk to about many things. 
  • Churches that have special meetings baptise more people than churches that do not have special meetings. If you think a church is doing well without special meetings, it would do even better with them. 
  • People will come to special meetings. Some say folks won’t attend such meetings any more. Use a guest speaker and you’ll be surprised at how many people will come. 
  • By abandoning special services we are catering to the laziness and mixed up priorities of those church members who don’t want to come. If they have time for sport, TV, the Internet and the newspaper, they have time to come to church for a few nights. They need to know we don’t buy their excuses and that we refuse to accommodate them. 
  • Special meetings are another hook in the water. Trotline fishing is the most productive way to fish for souls. Churches need to be putting more hooks in the water, not fewer. Special meetings are not the only method to win the lost and invigorate the saved, but they are still a highly effective method. 
  • Special meetings are biblical. The people of God periodically had multi-day meetings to seek the Lord afresh. 
  • Every Christian and every church needs a check-up occasionally. It is easy to get off course or to develop blind spots and need a correction. The special meeting has historically been used of God to help get both Christians and churches back on course, and back to being what God has put us here to do. 
  • Special meetings provide opportunities for an altar call. A trip to the altar when the Holy Spirit leads does a person good. Kneeling before the Lord helps keep one humble; we are too proud as it is. If the altar call is removed, what method is left for people to humble themselves before the Lord in a public way. Humbling oneself before the Lord in a public way has a strong biblical precedent. We dare not throw out what God considers important. In our attempts to not offend people, we have wound up offending God. He desires us to follow His commands and examples, not our own opinions. God’s word, not contemporary culture, is to be our guide.

Heaven beckons you

Whosoever will may come


Ministry Booking Information

Costs and Preferences

The following information is provided for your convenience based upon the most asked questions we receive and our ministry questions.


Accomodation and meals are usually arranged by the host church/group. Being in the full time ministry for 43 years of which 34 years was as a local pastor, I understand church budgets. In view hereof I accept any neat and reasonable accomodation offered me, whether in a lodge, B & B, hotel or private home. 


Traveling Costs:

For 2020 I am leaving these costs up to the integrity of the host church/pastor. All people know what it costs to travel in our day and I assume this will be be considered accordingly.

It's part of our mission to reach out to the lost and show them that regardless of their situation, God does indeed have a plan for their lives- whether they know it or not is the only issue. Our duties as Christians dictate that we help spread the word and the influence of Jesus Christ to those that may not know of him or know of him but have lost their way through the many trials of life.
Our Ministry is dedicated to the saving of lost souls through the uncompromised preaching of the Word Of God.  Hosea 4:6 says, "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge..."  It is our heart's mission to teach the Body of Christ how to equip themselves with the Word of God for the day to day battles that we face as Christians.
