Most of you have never heard of Irving but his impact on South Africa and teaching African Pastors can not be minimized.

Hello Friend,

Pastor Irving Steggles entered Paradise on Wednesday, April 22nd 2020. He was a godly man, kind and greatly loved by many, and a faithful pastor of Birchleigh Baptist Church in Kempton Park, South Africa.

He, along with his close and long-time friend, Pastor Erroll Hulse (now deceased), had a God-given passion for mission, a vision they bathed in prayer. They fervently desired that knowledge of the Doctrines of Grace be shared with African pastors. Together they began a ministry called African Pastors’ Conferences (APC). They focused on the challenge in Matthew 28:18-20 to make disciples in the nations of Africa, teaching them to observe all that Jesus commanded. They realized that this could only be done through ensuring there were biblical churches with faithful pastors in all the major areas of population, as well as the vast expanse of rural areas. Their goal was to combat the advance of spiritual darkness across Africa.
