He started out immediately within his local church on "a road of Christian service" that led him to youth outreaches in his hometown Bloemfontein and missionary trips into Africa.

Ministry[edit]

Together with his wife Pastor Nyretta, Pastor At founded church planted in Ladybrand which led to the established CRC Bloemfontein, in 1994.
