Wikus - Pastor
Terry Ann - Church Administrator & Secretary
The Botha family are from Harare, Zimbabwe. They have been involved in ministry in Central & Southern Africa for over 30 years & became US residents in 2016 having had to leave their home because of economic & political disintegration. They have three adult children & 5 grandchildren. Their passion is to build loving relationships by God’s Spirit, to teach & release God’s people into a deeper walk with their Lord & to bring those who do not yet know God to a knowledge of His saving grace. They believe strongly in every member of Christ’s body having an active role in the life of the church as each person fulfills their calling.
“From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.” Ephesians 4:16
"Lifeline" Youth Director
I married Matt in 1988 and we have two awesome boys, Matthew and Jesse, both in college. I also have a beautiful daughter in law, Piang, and am about to be a grandma. I have been attending Lighthouse since 1996 and leading the youth programs since 1997. I have a deep love and commitment for Jesus Christ and to the teens of the community. My desire would be for them to know their place in the kingdom of God and to become productive members of our society.
I think that my most important attribute is that I reflect the love of God!
