Making Kingdom treasures available to all who want to follow Jesus

 

Alexander F. Venter

My passion is to make the treasures of the Kingdom available to all who want to follow Jesus, praying that God will use them for spiritual formation toward Christlikeness, in order to equip people for effective life and ministry in God’s Kingdom.

Teachings

The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field – when a person finds the treasure they joyfully go and sell all that they have in order to buy the field, to explore and share the treasure (Matthew 13:44)
