JJ Engelbrecht
JJ Engelbrecht/ Pastoral Associate - Middle School /
JJ was born in Cape Town, SA. JJ is passionate about soccer, long-distance running, and music, but his greatest passion of all was produced by God following his salvation in 2010; and that passion is to lift high the Name of Jesus in all that he does. The manifestation of that desire has resulted in full-time ministry for the last 3 years, and has now led him to Immanuel.
