About the founder

Jelmer Bijlstra

Jelmer Bijlstra is the initiator and founder of the ministry Time for Christ. On the age of 16 he came to repentance and he discovered that God exists and that we can come into contact with God trough His Son Jesus Christ.

From the age of 16 he started to speak in various places and at the age of 19 after completing his study marketing and communication, he went to the Bible school in Belgium.

From the moment he came to repentance, he got a passion for worldwide evangelism. Inspired by the stories of Reinhard Bonnke, T.L. Osborn and other evangelists, the desire to serve God started to grow.

In the last years he’s had the opportunity to learn from various organisations and people regarding evangelism. In December 2016, God opened a door to attend a large gospel campaign for the first time by himself. This was with a Dutch ministry called Goandtell in the capital city of Burkina Faso in Africa.

He was a student at the Reinhard Bonnke School of evangelism of Christ for all Nations in Rotterdam and Orlando In 2014 and 2016.

On February 15 2018 Time for Christ was founded.
