Visionary leaders, Pastor At and Pastor Nyretta Boshoff
Win the lost at any cost!
CRC was established in 1994 by Senior Pastors At and Nyretta Boshoff in Bloemfontein with 180 members. Since then our church in Bloemfontein, Pretoria and Johannesburg alone has grown to over 52 000 members and has thousands of active homecells. It is currently one of the fastest growing churches in South Africa.
Pastor Shawn and Jamie-Lee Nortje were commissioned by Pastor At and Pastor Nyretta Boshoff to plant CRC False Bay on 11 February 2018. The church has grown from 3 to hundreds of members and continues to grow. Pastor Shawn and Jamie are from Bloemfontein and have been planted in CRC Bloemfontein since 2006. They have served in the church and were youth leaders. In 2013 Pastor Shawn joined the ministry full-time as a youth pastor before being sent to plant CRC False Bay with his wife Jamie and daughter Mica.
What we believe
We believe that we are called to make a difference in the world that we live in. At CRC we strive to stimulate growth in our members through relevant teaching, passionate worship, loving care and small group interaction (homecells), by releasing members to function in their gifts and talents and by encouraging them to reach out to others. If you are looking for a church where you can experience love and where you can fulfil your God-given potential, we trust that you will find a home at CRC.
Building one church in many locations, nationally and internationally.
Win the lost at any cost.
Mend the nets, the catch will be great. To train and release every member for ministry, caring for, discipling and evangelising our community.
It is the dream of CRC to be an oasis of life in this city where the hurting, the depressed, the sick, the frustrated and the confused can find love, acceptance, help, hope, healing, forgiveness, guidance and encouragement.
It is our dream to feed the poor, to clothe the naked and to take care of orphans and widows.
It is the dream of CRC to effectively share the Good News of Jesus Christ with every man, woman and child.
It is the dream of CRC to welcome a tithe of our cities as members into the fellowship of our Church family, loving, learning, laughing and living in harmony together and fulfilling God’s vision for us.
It is the dream of CRC to develop every incoming member to spiritual maturity, ministering to the whole man (spirit, soul and body) through small groups, seminars, retreats, bible studies and a Bible School for our members.
It is the dream of CRC to equip every member for significant ministry helping them discover the gifts and talents God has given them.
It is the dream of CRC to be a Lighthouse to the nations, a mission base regularly sending out missionaries to the four corners of the earth.
It is the dream of CRC to have suitable, practical but yet beautiful facilities designed to minister to the total person, spiritually, emotionally, physically and socially. These facilities will include a worship auditorium seating thousands, recreation facilities, children facilities, Bible School, several fellowship halls, administration facilities and schools.
It is our dream to have a farm with rehabilitation facilities, industry warehouses, orphanages, old age homes and serval community centres in our city.
I confidently state that these dreams will become a reality because they are inspired by God.

Become An Active Partner
“… but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head – Christ – from whom the whole body, joined and knit together BY WHAT EVERY JOINT SUPPLIES, ACCORDING TO THE EFFECTIVE WORKING BY WHICH EVERY PART DOES ITS SHARE, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.” (Ephesians 4:15, 16).
According to the Bible, every member of the local church has a dynamic contribution to make towards ensuring the growth and health of the church. We encourage every member to participate and to do their share. The church is all about partnership and not about spectatorship. You can do your share by:
Stewarding Your Gifts And Talents.
God has graced you with specific gifts and talents. Use your gifts and talents not only to serve in the local church but also to expand the Kingdom of God: “As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.” (1 Peter 4:10).
Stewarding Your Resources.
God said that a tithe (10%) of our income must be brought to the “storehouse” – the church where you are cared for. These finances must be used to build, establish and expand His Kingdom:
“Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this,” says the LORD of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, so that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,” says the LORD of hosts; “and all nations will call you blessed, for you will be a delightful land,” says the LORD of hosts.” (Malachi 3:10-12).
Understanding That The Whole Tithe Belongs To God And It Is Holy.
“And all the tithe of the land, [whether] of the seed of the land [or] of the fruit of the tree, [is] the LORD’S. It [is] holy to the LORD.” (Leviticus 27:30).
Acknowledge That The Bible Is Clear That We Must Honour God With Our Possessions.
“Honour the LORD with your possessions, and with the first fruits of all your increase; so your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new wine.” (Proverbs 3:9, 10).
Accept That We All Have A Responsibility To Ensure That The Needs In The Local Church Are Met.
“Nor was there anyone among them who lacked; for all who were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the proceeds of the things that were sold, and laid them at the apostles’ feet; and they distributed to each as anyone had need.” (Acts 4:34, 35).
Realising That God Loves A Cheerful Giver.
“… for God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9:7)
Acknowledging That Your Giving Will Impact The Quality Of Your Life.
“Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.” (Luke 6:38).
“But a generous man devises generous things, and by generosity he shall stand.” (Isaiah 32:8).
“But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.” (2 Corinthians 9:6).
“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.” (Galatians 6:7).
Reaching Out To Your Family Members, Friends, Neighbours And Colleagues.
The Bible says that as God’s children we have a responsibility to share the good news of Jesus with those people with whom we are in a relationship.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God” (2 Corinthians 5:17-20).
