Pastor Kobus van Rensburg [Jnr] is an anointed minister of the Gospel who desires to see the Church thriving as the most blessed and prosperous people on earth.
He is married to Tracy, and they have three children, daughters Katie and Zoe and son Jethro. They currently live in Stilfontein (North West, South Africa) where Kobus is the senior pastor of Spirit Word Ministries. He is also the lead guitarist of the band ‘Sons of Life’.
Already new doors are opening for Spirit Word Ministries, and a new day has dawned, in which the Lord is taking the ministry forward, building on the amazing foundation He has laid through the life of one of His great pioneers.
Spirit Word Ministries is situated in Stilfontein in the North-West Province of South Africa and is renown for Word, Worship and Wonders. Although miracles have always been evident in the ministry, miracles over the last ten years have surpassed all previous years.
Spirit Word Ministries was started in 1985 and has subsequently grown into a pace-setting church.
More than 14,000 cripples have miraculously thrown away crutches and stood up out of wheelchairs. Testimonies of cancers and HIV being healed are documented almost daily. People from all over South Africa, Africa and countries further afield travel far distances to the Miracle Meetings. This ministry is reaching out to the whole of South Africa and beyond its borders with Miracles, Signs and Wonders.
To present the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory of God to the body of Christ and the world, through television and any available media.
The Word of God is power in itself when it is rightly divided and is explained by the Word and not by man’s theories, imaginations, world news reports and events. God is fully in control and He has given us a manual to direct our lives. The time is nowhere to conform to the Word, His plan and His standards.
Our mission is to help Christians understand the Word and grow up into mature Sons of God, not keeping them busy with doctrines of demons, but teaching them how to rule and reign in this life in one Christ Jesus, right here and now. The people of God should be the most blessed, the most prosperous and most healthy of all people on earth.
Further, the mission is to reach the unsaved by giving them true hope, encouragement and a way of reconciliation with God Almighty through His Son, Jesus Christ. The Spirit Word Channel will fulfil this mission by recognising, sourcing, creating and packaging anointed and truthful material from men and women of God from around the globe, and present it in a spirit of excellence.
Prophet Kobus van Rensburg Snr.
On 26th April, 1985 we resigned from the denomination and started Lofdal Ministries, which later became Spirit Word Ministries. In the year 2000, we started broadcasting and 4 years later we launched the Spirit Word Channel.
The vision keeps on expanding, all Praise and Glory to our King JESUS, who is THE CHRIST!
I was born 24th October, 1952, of a God-fearing mother, and loved the Lord Jesus from a young age, giving my life to God in an Evangelistic meeting on my 7th birthday.
Unfortunately, my High School days were spent in a hostel with the wrong friends, and I drifted away from Jesus. By the age of 19, I was caught up with smoking, drinking, drugs and stealing.
In 1971 I joined the South African Air Force and was soon transferred to the Navy to study Electronic Engineering and also to do an officers course. I furthered my career at Atlas Aircraft Corporation.
Praise God! I met Jesus again, God never left me!
At age 24 I was back, surrendered to God, and within days was preaching on street corners and praying for the sick, God working through me with signs following.
At age 27 I went to a Pentecostal Bible School where I met my dear wife, Annalise. Newly married, we set off into the mission field and saw great miracles and salvations.
We pioneered a few churches before taking the pastorate of an established church in Klerksdorp, North West Province, South Africa.
After 3 successful years, God kept on reminding me of the vision, explaining in detail, way back then, where we are at present, and what we are doing now.
Annalise van Rensburg
Annalise is a dynamic minister of the Word. Her fresh and practical perspective captivates the hearts and minds of her audience.
She is currently travelling internationally proclaiming the Good News to the masses.
I grew up in the home of one of South Africa’s famous artists, my father, Adriaan Boshoff.
As a little girl I was confronted with the fact that eternity waits for every human being, especially when my dad was diagnosed with lung cancer. Every night I dreamt of eternity without God and tried to get help, but to no avail.
Eventually, after my father was miraculously healed after prayer, I truly found God.
The desire for God led me to a Pentecostal Bible School, were I met my husband, Kobus van Rensburg.
Kobus, ever obedient to the Lord’s prompting, travelled to America in 1980 where Lester Sumrall, one of his role models, prayed over me on a tape, prophesying that we would have three sons.
In due time Kosie (James), Johan (John) and Petrus (Peter) were born, and they grew up in and into the ministry, mentored and trained in the ways of God through that special relationship Kobus had with our sons.
On 21st December, 2013, after 34 years in ministry, my husband, prophet Kobus, went to be with the Lord he had served so faithfully, and stayed with Him, leaving us, his family, to step into the legacy that God, through Kobus, had prepared for us.
