PASTORS THABO AND KAREN MARAIS
Under the leadership of Pastor At Boshoff, the founder and visionary of CRC International, Pastor Thabo Marais was appointed as Senior Pastor of CRC London.
Pastor Thabo grew up in South Africa before coming to London for a working holiday. After being radical converted at the end of 2002, he immediately accepted the call of God on his life and forsook all to join the ministry full time. He subsequently submitted and served under the leadership of Pastor Francis Webster, the Senior Pastor of CRC London at the time, who planted the church back in 2001. Pastor Francis, in 2008 was commissioned to the plant of a new church in Perth Australia.
In 2009 Pastor Thabo was released as the Senior Pastor of CRC London. His heart is to reach London, the United Kingdom and Europe for Jesus. Since his release to pastor CRC London, the church has grown year upon year from 300 people to over 3000 people attending Sunday services.
His powerful yet straightforward approach for building a great church is to keep Jesus, and a passion for building God’s Kingdom, the centre of everything. ‘Winning the lost at any cost’ is the focus and mandate of Christian Revival Church.
Together with his lovely wife, Karen, they are dedicated to cultivate this heart for souls in CRC London. They have three boys, Tristan, Christopher and Izak, and twin girls Chayila and Clarissa.
