About Us

3C is a dynamic, multi-racial, multi-site, vibrant and fast-growing church with over 25,000 members in South Africa, founded by Pastors Bert and Charné Pretorius. Their passion for God is contagious and very evident in their ministry all over the world. Fulfilling the Great Commission of Jesus Christ (Matt 28:19) is achieved by winning, consolidating, discipling and sending people through the over 2000 cell groups. 

Their love for God and His people are evidenced in the many welfare and social development projects of the Church, with the Compassion for Children project feeding 10,000 underprivileged children on a daily basis.

Through television and radio broadcasts “A New Life, A New Beginning” shares the Good News to over 47 million people across the African and European continents every week. A dedicated team of prayer warriors pray daily for the many requests received in response to these broadcasts.

Bert and Charné are blessed, with sons, Pearson, Damian and Tristan, and their daughters Caitlyn, Jordan and Madison.

Bert is an ordained minister of the Full Gospel Church of God in South Africa.
