Teaching pastoral care and discipleship at AGTS, as well as teaching psychology and training counselors at Evangel University, is not just an academic exercise for Johan Mostert. After several years in his early career as a pastor with the Apostolic Faith Mission in South Africa, he left the comfort of parish ministry to become a pastoral counselor among abused and abandoned children at the Villa Lubet Children’s Village. For the next 20 years he served the needs of South Africa’s poorest and most vulnerable citizens, directing the National Welfare Department of his denomination for more than a decade. The severity of the AIDS crisis and compassion for the rural poor eventually led him to begin Chrisnet, a faith-based organization dedicated to channeling government grants to local churches and Christian sustainable development projects. He is widely recognized as a leading authority on local-church response to the global AIDS pandemic and travels frequently as a speaker and project consultant for faith-based development agencies. His passion as a teacher is to train pastors and counselors who will respond to human suffering wherever it is found with biblical and psychological skill and Spirit-led compassion.

"I am passionate about helping students gain a global and holistic perspective on the power of the gospel to transform lives and change entire communities.." — Johan Mostert
