IVAN VAN ZYL

I was born on the 30th of June 1995 in Pretoria and have lived here ever since. I got
married to my beautiful wife Tanya on the 24th of June 2018.

I am very fortunate to have encountered God at a very young age in my life and since I can remember He has always been a reality.


I believe that if you work as hard as you can with what God puts in your hands, being dedicated and focused to do the best you possibly can without being focused on yourself and what you can get out of it, but focused on the things above and honouring God. You will have the privilege of living a life inside the will of God.


TG is something that really speaks to my heart as I aspire to live a life of thankfulness and significance.

I had the privilege to represent my country when I became Springbok nr. 896
on the 2nd of June 2018 and I know this would not have been possible without God
directing and leading me as I go.

TG is all about thanking God for who He is and what He has already done for each of us.


I am currently studying theology through SATS while playing for the Vodacom Bulls.

As a 12-year-old boy, I had the dream of playing professional rugby and using that platform to spread the message of God and I am very honoured to be living my dream. I love the game of rugby, fitness and living a healthy life.


If we really want to live a life of significance we need to be more concerned with knowing Christ, than with finding ourselves.
