Ian and Annchen Loughor-Clarke

Dr Ian Loughor-Clarke is the founder and Senior Pastor of Haenertsburg Christian Church in Haenertsburg, Limpopo, an inter-denominational, evangelical church with about 100 active members in a village of about 400 people.  He married to Annchen and they have four lovely boys.

Ian planted and founded Haenertsburg Christian Church and is the pastor of this lovely family congregation. He also founded and established Logos Believers’ Church (formally Africa Church Plant) which is there to plant churches among the Pedi and Tsonga speaking people. Ian is also the leader (senior co-ordinator) of the Letaba Missions Forum which is made up of over a hundred different full-time church workers from all different denominations.

He is also the founder of Logos Believers’ Church which ministers to the Sotho speaking people in the community and surrounding farming areas, but he has handed this ministry over.

After actively supporting unity among the churches in the Letaba district for more than 20 years, Ian was asked to take over the Letaba Missions Forum which provides a district association through which every pastor, reverend, para-church organization, ministry or individual in the Letaba District can speak and act with one voice in supporting unity in the greater body of Christ. Also to stand together in relation to matters related to biblical issues within the relative town councils. It is also there to help us share resources and ensure that all our congregations remain on the cutting edge within the Kingdom of God.
