Derk Jan and Renee Van Der Veen are currently the leaders of the Shofar Utrecht congregation. They have 5 years previous experience with students at one of the bigger Shofar congregations in Cape Town. They are passionate about teaching others of Christ and the Gospel, as well as seeing people healed through Deliverance.
God called them to Utrecht for the purpose of planting an English speaking Shofar Church and moved to Utrecht on the 9th of July 2015. Their house is always open to anyone and have become spiritual parents to many. They have a heart for the lost and unreached and head into the heart of Utrecht every Thursday, to evangelize and connect with people in the streets.
