Welcome to shofar pretoria
We are a dynamic family of believers settled in the heart of South Africa’s capital city. Our services, held each Sunday in both Brooklyn and Sunnyside, are marked by vibrant praise & worship, practical Bible teaching and heart-warming fellowship. Small groups, which meet all across the greater Tshwane area during the week, are the heartbeat of our ministry and provide a safe environment where each member can actively engage with, and grow in, their faith within the context of authentic relationships. Whether you’re new to the Christian faith or looking for a healthy church family, we’d love to have you over!

Phillip grew up in a "traditional" Christian home in Johannesburg, but came to know the Lord personally at the start of his studies at Stellenbosch University. He quickly developed a love for the local church and spent his student years juggling his academics and ministering wherever the opportunity arose. After completing his studies in Economics he lectured at Stellenbosch University before moving to Pretoria to initiate a student ministry at Shofar Pretoria, serving as the student pastor for 5 years. In 2008 he was elected to chair the Christian Ministries Forum, a forum for all Christian organisations ministering at the University of Pretoria, a position he held until 2017.
Phillip currently serves as the lead pastor of Shofar Pretoria, as regional leader of our churches and church plants in Gauteng, Limpopo, Mpumalanga, North West & Free State and is a member of our International Apostolic Leadership. He is married to Janetta and together they have 3 daughters.
Jaco grew up in Pretoria and made a personal commitment to follow Christ at the age of 12. He joined Shofar during his studies at Stellenbosch University while employed by the South African Air Force as a student engineer. He changed courses and completed his studies in Industrial Psychology and spent some years working in the Stellenbosch area. After marrying Erna in December 2006 they moved up to Gauteng to lead the Shofar church plant in Johannesburg. In 2010 Jaco and Erna were asked to join the Shofar Europe team and went on to serve as pastors at the Shofar UK congregations while also ministering regularly in Switzerland at the Shofar ministry camps held there.
Jaco and Erna moved to Pretoria from the UK with their two girls and one boy in January 2016 where Jaco now serves as associate pastor. Jaco loves people and is passionate about seeing individuals nourished spiritually and growing steadily in their pursuit of God’s will for their lives.
