About Wayne Erasmus
Pastor Wayne Erasmus is the Church Growth and Advent Mission Director.
Born in Zimbabwe and raised in both Zimbabwe and South Africa, Wayne has served as a Pastor in the Seventh-day Adventist Church for twenty years. After graduating from Helderberg College (Somerset West, near Cape Town) with a BA (Theol) he began ministry in the land of his birth. During that first year of ministry (1997) he married his college sweetheart, Karliese. Together, they have two teenaged daughters. In 2006 he graduated from the University of Pretoria (South Africa) with a Masters degree in Practical Theology.
Ministry has taken the family through three Divisions of the World Church where Wayne has served as a local pastor until being asked by the South England Conference Executive Committee to assume the role of Church Growth and Advent Mission Director in 2017.
This new role comes after several years of intentional revitalisation work with small congregations, both in South Africa and in Somerset (UK).
