Meet our Pastors, Staff & Leadership
Senior Pastors Andreas & Irmari Basson
Andreas and Irmari were married in 2001, and in 2005 they left their prosperous careers behind to immigrate to Canada where they started the journey of what God had planned for them, a journey of full time service to His people. In 2009 they planted Pneuma Church in Ladner. Together they lead and oversee all the ministries at Pneuma Church.
Andreas has a powerful teacher’s gifting and is dedicated to share the non-compromising truth of the Word that brings people out of bondage (John 8:32). He is determined to preach Jesus – His grace and His love – to a culture that is often trapped in the darkness of religion instead of being enlightened by the beauty of a relationship with our incredibly good Father.
They have a deeply rooted passion for Jesus; a passion to make a difference in this generation and future generations, leaving a spiritual inheritance for their children and their children to come. This inheritance is a solid understanding of God’s beautiful and perfect will for their lives; an inheritance that reminds of the calling to fulfill our God-given destiny, to stand on nothing but the truth of His unconditional love, grace, and the plan of His abundant goodness in every area of life. Andreas & Irmari have 3 children, Angeo, Kayli and Lenee.
Associate & Youth Pastor Hendrik Bisschoff
Hendrik Bisschoff, or better known as Bish, serves at Pneuma Church as Associate Pastor and heads up the Media and Youth Ministries. Bish left South Africa in 2014 after following God’s direction to come love and serve the people in Canada. He married a lovely Canadian girl, Hailey Bisschoff in 2017. Bish has a heart for Jesus and people and longs to see unity restored within the Church. Outside of Pneuma’s walls, he serves as Worship Director for Worship Central Canada and is also heavily involved with the Chapel Movement across the Lower Mainland. Alongside other community Youth Pastors, he helps lead an Inter-Church Youth program thriving to reach the lost and see young people grow in their relationships with Jesus.
