About the Pastors

Pastor Thando Sibanda accepted Christ in 1987 at the age of 12. After High School, his passion for communications led him to Media Village in Capetown, South Africa where he studied Tv production with a biblical perspective. After this Thando went to Rhema Bible college for pastoral training. To date Thando has served in ministries in Africa and abroad. In 2005 He married his lovely wife Gaone Sibanda and they served on the pastoral team at Victory Community Church in Dallas, Texas. In 2007 they relocated back to South Africa where they served various ministries untill the Lord commissioned them to Plant Hilltop Bible Church in Northriding, Johannesburg. Pastor Thando Believes that the church holds the answers for 21st century living and that every believer has been called to be the salt and light in that regard. A published Author and speaker, Pastor Thando loves to bring expository insight into the word of God.

Pastor Gaone currently co-pastoring with her husband, is excited to see what the Lord is doing in the city of Johannesburg and Africa at large, through the ministry of Hilltop Bible Church. At the age of 19, God led her to Christ For The nations Bible college in Dallas Texas, where she did her leadership and Pastoral studies. It was at Christ For The Nations, where her calling got clearer. After Bible School, she studied Business Administration at Dallas Baptist University and returned to South Africa, where the Lord has called her and her family to start His great work in the Northern Suburbs of Johannesburg.
