About Joe on a Mission


I am a loving husband to my beautiful wife, Marli. She is the love of my life and the one person, apart from the Lord, that knows me through and through. Her help, comfort, encouragement, strength and love is a constant reminder that I am much less without her!

I am a committed father. I love my two children. Karien my daughter (born June 2013) and Kobus my son (born in August 2015) are the greatest earthly joys that Marli and I could have been blessed with. They certainly bring out the best in us.

We are a family.

We are a family that loves Jesus.

We are a family that believes in lasting relationships. We are fortunate and very thankful to be surrounded with wonderful, deep and weighty friendships. We protect them, we grow them and we extend them.

We are spirited enthusiasts that enjoys musing over everyday matters and then engaging the community with thoughtful suggestions to make life interesting and give it meaning.

We are a family that is on an adventure of discovery.

What do we want to discover?

We want to discover what life together looks like in the wholehearted, unhindered and passionate pursuit of the honour of God and the expansion of His Kingdom.

We have been fortunate to be a part of a rich history of family life, both natural and spiritual. This tremendous legacy gives us the opportunity to setoff and endeavour much for the glory of God in the nations. We trust that the way we run the race now will set the rhythm for our children and their children and their children’s children to accomplish even greater exploits for the purposes of God.

This is who we are and yet it is not about us, but really about Jesus instead.

So join our family en route to adventure, discovery and the honour of God.
