Kids Church leaders

Meet the Erasmus’s

Our little family moved to Ballito in August of 2016, from Weltevreden Park in JHB, where we stayed from 2003 till 2016.  We met each other on the South Coast, Margate in 2000 and got married on 6th May 2006.

We have two wonderful boys, Evan (born in 2008) and Enzo (born in 2016).

At the time, we were new residents to Seaward Estate. We were excited to meet new people and join a church community and so on 13 February 2017 we made our way to Encounter Church (then called Destiny Life Church) and met incredible people who we now consider family.  It has been a wonderful journey ever since.  From dedicating our youngest son, Enzo, to the Lord on 12th March 2017 to both of us being baptized on the 12th May 2017 followed by a water baptism of our eldest son Evan, on 27th August 2017.

In January 2020 an exciting season started for us and have since been leading Children’s Ministry, Encounter Kids. We are super excited to see and experience what God has planned for the children and to see them grow in Christ on their journey as Jesus followers.

Jennifer Fouche

Kids Church Teacher

Hi, I’m Jen Fouché, and I am a Teacher on the  Encounter kid’s team. I have recently joined, but have had the privilege of being involved in kid’s ministry at previous churches. 🙂

I have a passion for teaching kids about God and seeing them grow in their understanding of, and relationship with, Him.

I’m loving getting to know the existing kids and I hope to see more joining us soon 😊

Brenda Nyawose

Kids Church Assistant

My name is Brenda Nyawose. I’m from Scottsburg. I started at Encounter in 2008. I  came to work in Ballito and I met the Fronemans who are members of the church.

Because of the warmth and love from the first day till now I’ve never looked back. On Encounter kids I started I think four or five years back.

I love kids so much and I like to help  around when they learn about how much Jesus loves them.

We love seeing the kids filled with The Holy Spirit!
