Love God, Love People,
Love Yourself

God’s will for you is deep inside of you, you know how you want to live. Everybody wants to live better, love more, be happy, leave a legacy and live with purpose. All this is God’s desire for you as well. His way is through the Rhythms of grace that Jesus taught more than 2000 years ago.
Mat 11:28

Our story is an amazing miracle, God’s idea story, something about Divine Appointments. It happened over three continents, meeting the right people at the right time at the most unexpected places. Two life stories coming together.

The first chapter in the story began in South Africa with Pastor Andries Enslin praying about his future and the church he started 19 years ago. In his heart, he feels a pull towards the USA and Texas in particular. Going to google maps, he feels a nudge towards Austin and sees names like New Braunfels, Wimberley, Round Rock, Georgetown.

As he is looking at the map, he receives an invitation to a church conference in New Zealand. It was at this City Impact Church conference in New Zealand, where he met Pastor Jeff from Austin, Texas. From the start, there was a connection and a curiosity about the meeting. The more Pastor Jeff talked about Austin, his church, and what they were praying about, the more Pastor Andries felt he must explore it.

Pastor eff Whiston had an interesting journey toward this meeting as well. He was raised in the US, saved in Spain, and has been starting and pastoring churches in Mexico for 24 years and pastoring a church in Austin for the last ten years. Pastor Jeff was a Foursquare pastor with relationship ties with City Impact Church. He has preached all over the world with a heart for missions and seeing people getting saved.

So, when the South African pastor met the US pastor at a conference in New Zealand, they sensed a more significant hand in their connection, and started talking about the possibilities. Six months after their first meeting, Pastor Andries visit Pastor Jeff in Austin. After preaching his first-ever English sermon during that visit, he knew this is what God wanted him to explore more.

They started the paperwork to get an R1 visa, and within six months, Andries and his family received their visa. Many more miracles happened to get Andries and his family in Austin by the end of November 2019. After setting up a house, getting the kids into school, and a lot of planning meetings, the first Rhythm Church service was held the first Sunday of February 2020.
