During his final year of internship (2010), he joined Ligpunt as the church planted in the suburbs of Pretoria in April of 2010.

By the end of 2010, he accepted an offer for a full time, two year apprenticeship, with Ligpunt and the newly established Transmission Ministry Training Program.
In 2013, after finishing his apprenticeship, he continued as a Ligpunt staff member and started his M. Min with The Antioch School of Church Planting and Leadership Development.
