  1. Excellent video – couldn’t agree with you more.

    On Sunday one of the points in the sermon was that the overwealming point of the church was to bring people to salvation. While this is true I would say that just as important is to feed God’s hungry, console the hurting, free those in captivity and (where God is leading me) help the orphans.

  2. @Lance, so true! I feel so passionately that to be completely relevant to this world, we should offer solutions that are practical as well as spiritual to people. If I felt that Christianity was only about my spirit and that God didnt care about my body, shelter, clothes etc. I would not have been very interested in the first place [to be honest].

About Me

My name is Christopher Peppler and I was born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1947. While working in the financial sector I achieved a number of business qualifications from the Institute of Bankers, Damelin Management School, and The University of the Witwatersrand Business School. After over 20 years as a banker, I followed God’s calling and joined the ministry full time. After becoming a pastor of what is now a quite considerable church, I  earned an undergraduate theological qualification from the Baptist Theological College of Southern Africa and post-graduate degrees from two United States institutions. I was also awarded the Doctor of Theology in Systematic Theology from the University of Zululand in 2000.

Four years before that I established the South African Theological Seminary (SATS), which today is represented in over 70 countries and has more than 2 500 active students enrolled with it. I presently play an role supervising Masters and Doctoral students.

I am a passionate champion of the Christocentric or Christ-centred Principle, an approach to biblical interpretation and theological construction that emphasises the centrality of Jesus

I have been happily married to Patricia since the age of 20, have two children, Lance and Karen, a daughter-in-law Tracey, and granddaughters Jessica and Kirsten. I have now retired from both church and seminary leadership and devote my time to writing, discipling, and the classical guitar.
