Hans loves to encourage and help people to live life to the max! For nearly 40 years he has been doing this around Australia and in other countries, believing that people can fulfil so much more of their potential.
He says "I want people to grab hold of life with both hands – it’s our most precious gift and worth doing well."
Sharing his life with Fiona, he connects with people of all ages. They have four adult sons: Luke married to Miriam with their daughter Livinia; Joel married to Naomi with their daughter Hannah; Marc married to Vanessa with their daughter Marianna and son Eli and finally, Caleb who is engaged to Maggie.
His enduring passion is to encourage people. For more than 26 years, he has outworked this as the Senior Pastor at The Source Church Stirling, a vibrant church in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia.
Hans shares and teaches widely around Australia and overseas in churches and conferences, lectures in Bible Colleges and is heard regularly on the radio around Australia through his 'Life Matters' spots.
He also continues to fulfil the role of Chairperson of the CRC Churches International in SA, WA and the NT which he has done for more than 20 years and was the previous National Vice Chairman for ten years.
Motivating people to change for the better is his heart, whether it is sharing in his home city of Adelaide or in the back blocks of Sri Lanka.
"People are the same everywhere", he says. "They all need to discover their God given destiny and purpose. The reality is God is the source of everything!"
To this message he has dedicated his life.
That's what I'm working so hard at day after day, year after year, doing my best with the energy God so generously gives me.
