My name is Tyrell Haag. I am a pastor at a church plant called Heritage Baptist Church in Johannesburg North, South Africa. After the Lord graciously saved me at the age of seven, through various trials and blessings He worked in my life to the end that in 2004 I began working as a Youth Pastor in Johannesburg South Africa.
At the end of 2007 I was called as a student Pastor to Constantia Park Baptist Church where I work with a wonderful eldership and under a godly pastor, Martin Holdt. At the end of 2008 I was called as an associate Pastor at the same Church and continued to serve there. In the beginning of 2011 the Lord laid it on my heart to, along with a friend of mine, plant a church in the northern suburbs of Johannesburg, so we began services at Heritage Baptist Church on the 2nd of January 2011.
I have a Honours degree from the Baptist Theological College of Southern Africa, I have also done course work for a Master’s in Nouthetic (Biblical) Counselling. I have a passion for apologetic and polemical issues. I enjoy theology so much as it brings glory to my Saviour Jesus Christ. My personal confession of faith is mostly in keeping with the “1689 Baptist Confession”. In 2014 I began my work on a Masters in Systematic Theology
I long to see the gospel permeate South Africa, and I am convinced of its power to change lives and bring real hope. It indeed is the power of God unto Salvation (Romans 1:16). It is my prayer that by God’s decree the majority of people in South Africa would be converted, either by the slow progress of the gospel or by sudden revivals that God sees fit to bless parts of the earth with in HIS-story.
The Lord has seen fit to use me on various TV and radio programs, at the moment I do a Q&A every Friday on Radio Pulpit. I also preach two sermons for a weekly radio show called ‘Word to the World’. I live with my beautiful wife Ainsley (Married on December 12, 2009) who has an Honours in Journalism and she is quite a gifted photographer and writer. Together we strive to see the gospel make progress in our country, To God alone be the Glory.
