The Story

Behind Garland & Annaline’s Vision for Discover Church

Garland & Annie have a passion to BUILD and LEAD a RELEVANT CHURCH that brings the GRACE-FILLED LOVE of Jesus Christ to ALL people in a way that engages them relationally where they are, BRINGING JESUS INTO THEIR CONTEXT.

After serving at Oasis Life Ministries for 17 years in various roles, they felt God lead them to plant a church that would reach out to the lost in Pietermaritzburg, this call was confirmed through the Holy Spirit multiple times over the years and resulted in their ordination as Pastors’ by the South African Evangelical Mission. Both Garland & Annaline completed their Diploma in theology in 1999 whilst Garland pursued his Bachelor in Theology through the South African Theological Seminary.

After 26 YEARS OF MARRIAGE and YEARS OF PARENTING; Garland and Annaline,
along with their two children (Jesse and Jadine), embark on this dream to pioneer Discover Church that was birthed in their hearts. DYNAMIC WORSHIP,
PASSIONATE PREACHING, and RELATIONAL VISIONARY LEADERSHIP mark their
ministry. Both Annaline and Garland have served at Scripture Union SA in various capacity and carry a successful track record of DEVELOPING and EMPOWERING LEADERS. Their genuine love of people and kind hospitality combined with a desire to live the FUN abundant life that Jesus provided is a staple of all they do.

This is the HEART, people are the DREAM, and OUR VISION is to be faithful followers of Jesus who bring hope and healing to the world.
