We are deeply thankful for Marvin Petersen who was inducted as the new pastor of the Kalk Bay Community Church (KBCC) on 28 January. We pray that God will bless him and his wife, Veronika and their little daughter, Rubina.
Marvin says, “The past seven years at the Biblia Kiosk I worked closely with the Kalk Bay Community Church (KBCC) in ministering to the lost in the community,” Peter says.
“It was in 2014 when the pastor of KBCC approached me and asked me to join his church and to do my internship under his leadership. As I was working alongside the leadership for 3 years as an intern, pastor Conradie considered to resign after 12 years of pastoral work to go full-time into missions. He and the committee approached me last August and asked if I would take on the call as the new pastor of the KBCC.
“The induction service was well attended and we were excited to have the support of the congregation, friends, family and former student colleagues.
“I was officially inducted as the new pastor of KBCC by our former pastor, Pastor Conradie. After some encourgaging verses, my wife and I were asked about our faith and commitment to the church and the pastoral call that we accepted. All present pastors came up and prayed corporately for us.
“After the induction I preached a sermon on 1 John 4:7-12 on the topic of loving one another. What a joyous occasion this was for the beginning of our new ministry. We thank God for this open door at KBCC and pray that God may use us for His glory!”
