Agapé Ministries was founded in 1987 by Corné and Pat van Niekerk. Henrí and Pearl Grové arrived with their three daughters, Leani, Danelle and Reneé during December 1990. They initially moved to start a business that flourished, but God had bigger and better plans. Henrí and Pearl joined the ministry team at Agapé Christian Church in July 1994. The leadership acted in obedience to God’s voice and started the English congregation in October 2003. Henri and Pearl led the assembly until April 2010.

Pieter and Lianza Pretorius are currently pastoring the English Assembly. They completed their studies at the Full Gospel Church of God in 1998 and were actively involved at the Revival Christian Centre in Alberton-north for several years before they were called to the ministry in Polokwane in 2006, along with their 2 daughter, Monique and Inez, and their son, Rueben.

Short vision breakdown…

Our vision is to reach the world for Christ through discipleship and to progressively grow in faith, love 
and unity. 

At Agapé you will:

  • Find a place where you can function in the gift that God has invested in you
  • Walk in relationship and discipleship
  • Experience the love of a Christian family
  • Be empowered by Word-based teaching
  • Participate in community and outreach projects

The objectives and goals of our congregation are simplistic but dynamic:

  • To experience the Lordship of Christ
  • To make the world aware of God’s immense love
  • To cultivate a climate in which one can discover their talents and learn how to use them in His service
  • To develop prophetic leadership in each facet of our community

Our Vision: Reaching the world for Christ through love and discipleship.

“We are passionate about reaching the lost and drawing in the strangers and all who are seeking a place to belong. Agape is a family equipping assembly that believes that discipleship starts at home 
and that a healthy family will ultimately lead to a healthy community. It is our desire to see each individual grow in the grace of God and to purposefully function in their families as God intended and to fulfil their role in the body of Christ. We furthermore endeavour to establish a community of believers who whole-heartedly pursues God and who acknowledges Him as their only true Source.”
