Scharl and Anthea van Staden

Senior Leadership Couple
My wife and I have been married for 20 years and God has blessed us with four wonderful children, 2 boys & 2 girls. Dominique 17, Gabriel 14, Michael 10 & Mckenzi 7 bring tons of joy and laughter to our home…and of course…the chaos never stops. We love the Lord with all our hearts and desire to see people saved, discipled and experience what God is really like. Early on in our marriage we knew that God had a call for ministry and have always been faithful where He had us serving. My wife is active in the corporate environment and is currently employed at a leading banking institution. I recently served as Pastor at CHOOSE LIFE Church in Pretoria  under Lead Pastor John Roebert, and has been a time of amazing growth  and developement. Around 2015 we sensed a stirring in the Spirit that God wanted us to plant a church. After walking a journey with the leadership we have been blessed and released to plant Centre Stage Christian Church in Midrand, and count it a priviledge to be associated to CHOOSE LIFE Church. We are looking forward to a wonderful time in this new season, the lives that will be touched and going ever deeper in Gods presence as we pursue the Person and Work of the Holy Spirit, teaching people to engage their Kingdom inheritance
