Loving God & Enjoying Life

We are thankful that God had a different purpose for him! His daily devotions, which is a great encouragement and daily boost to listeners, have also been combined into a book called “Dagbreek met God.”

Johann loves music, and listeners can hear diverse gospel music in all the programmes that he presents. He lives life to the fullest, is known for his and authenticity, realness, joy, and helping and caring for others are some of his passions. His love for God and people is tangible to every listener, even when he is speaking to thousands.

You will experience this and much more in the various programmes he presents.

You can join him on Dagbreek, Something Els, and Spektrum on both Radio Pulpit and Radio Cape Pulpit.
