A Rocha National and A Rocha Gauteng Chairperson- David Gertzen
Dave Gertzen – National and A Rocha Gauteng chairperson
Dave lives in Linden, Johannesburg, with his wife Margie, a stone throw from Delta Park where they’ve spent many hours walking dogs and birding. They love the bush and berg and regularly spend time in both. In his role as elder at Rosebank Union Church, they are involved in various other leadership roles at the church.
He has a Masters in Project Management in civil engineering and currently works at Malani Padayachee and Associates as COO. Dave is passionate about integrating faith into everyday life and continues to be amazed at the complexity and beauty of creation. Studying at All Nations Christian College in the UK under Dr Chris Wright helped give him a framework for integrating, land, people and God. He became involved in A Rocha SA a few years ago thanks to a friend of ours who had been involved in the organisation. The integration of faith, environment and church is one that needs an enhanced emphasis. A Rocha is an organisation where he feels that he could be involved for the glory of God and for the sake of the church
