The B-Team Pastor who is Afraid of Snakes

The Musings of a South African Pastor in Amarillo Texas


Sheldon grew up in Cape Town, South Africa and moved to the USA in the late 1990’s.  He grew up in a Christian home with parents who served actively in their local church.

He began his pursuit of ministry in 1997, and after attending Southern Africa Bible College, and receiving a Diploma in Theology, he moved to Rochester Michigan to continue his studies.  He received a Bachelor of Religious Education in 2001.  Following his stay in Michigan he moved to Abilene, Texas where he completed a Master of Divinity Degree in 2004, followed by a Doctor of Ministry Degree in 2010, both from Abilene Christian University.

Sheldon married Haylee in 2006 and they have 2 girls, Ella and Emry.

Sheldon’s desire in preaching is to create an encounter between God, Text and people.
