Henk and his wife, Sandra, have been in full-time ministry since 1994, following Henk’s completion of his pastoral diploma through the AFM Theological College in Johannesburg, South Africa. They’ve been involved in the local church, as well as, one-on-one lay counseling, itinerant ministry, and the prophetic ministry.
In 2001 God opened up doors for itinerant ministry and they started to minister throughout South Africa, serving different denominations, church cultures, camps, ministries, and conferences through the leading of the Holy Spirit. It was during this time that they founded Manifesting Christ Ministries as a ministry vehicle.
Experiencing the ever-growing call of God on their lives to represent His love and heart to those around them, they grew in their understanding and practice of the gifts of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12) – the Love of the Father forever being the foundation from which they minister.
In early 2016, following prayer and prophetic confirmation, the name of the ministry changed to Love Decided Ministries – passionate about being His representation of Love and Kingdom on the earth, growing in and answering the call of Isaiah 61.
Walking in the prophetic and equipping the saints with sound, Biblical teaching, Henk and Sandra continue to look for ways in which to serve, encourage, uplift, disciple, and love people!
Currently, Love Decided focuses on:
- community involvement,
- fellowship meetings,
- equipping workshops,
- worship evenings,
- one-on-one lay counseling,
- relationship coaching and counseling,
- life coaching,
- and discipleship.
Key Scriptures for us
For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. – Romans 8:19
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. – Romans 8:37-39
As You sent Me into the world, I have sent them into the world. – John 17:18
‘Your kingdom come, Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven. – Matthew 6:10
It is our belief that there is only one, true God who is the Creator and Redeemer of all things. He is wholly and completely just, truthful, loving, holy, and good. He is one Being in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
We take care to incorporate our VALUES in everything we do, and we strive to make choices governed by our knowledge of the Truth through the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Henk & Sandra Barnard
We are always looking to grow into areas where there is a need for His Kingdom to come.
