Louis Brittz, a 47-year old lawyer by training, is vice-president of Maranatha Label Group, co-leads the #Imagine Movement (www.imaginemovement.co.za) and is on the preaching/worship leading team at Kerksondermure (churchwithoutwalls) in Centurion. He is best-known as singer-songwriter and worshipleader, executive producer, event director, strategic ministry consultant and public speaker.
Louis has recorded 13 CD's containing self written songs in English and Afrikaans as well as well-known praise and worship material. His 2012 release ‘Psalms’ has recieved gold status (34 000 units sold to date). His work has been nominated for and won local music awards and many of the leading South African gospel artists have recorded songs written by Louis. He has authored a book, Wat wenners weet/Born to win and has been a frequent column contributor to South African magazines.
Louis performs on invitation with a band made up of professional musicians. They deliver a dynamic performance built on worship and accoustic rock music, with African, Europian and American influences. It's a unique style and is the main reason why he has been touring internationally for 15 years. Louis is fond of South Africans who live abroad and frequently undertakes tours to Australia, New Zeeland, the UK and Dubai to encourage the expats.
Louis has performed with Steven Curtis Chapman, Kirk Franklin, The Newsboys, Third Day and Sonic Flood on their tours to South Africa. He has led worship at numerous national conferences, working with Drs. Loren Cunningham, Tony Campolo, Bruce Wilkinson, Duffy Robbins, George Verwer, Angus Buchan and almost every South African Christian speaker of note.
Louis has worked closely with South African youth ministries as a project leader, producer and evangelist, but is especially known as a mobiliser of young adults towards radically relevant Christianity. He is a firm believer that our generation has a key-role to play in establishing God's Kingdom; that apart from being saved and healed by the inworking of the cross of Christ, we are to take up our mantle as wounded healers who take the Message and the Love of Christ to a world that has heard so much, but has seen so little of the Christ who lives in his body of believers today. With his dedicated team of musicians and assistants, Louis has had the priviledge to see thousands saved, called and envisioned to apply their calling to daily life. This a Holy Spirit-inspired ministry for which Louis and his team give God all the glory!!
Louis also developed a course in leading praise and worship and has trained more than 300 worshipteams from 14 denominations in Canada, America, England, Scotland, The Ukraine, Malawi, Namibia and South Africa during the past 10 years. Churches have a desperate need for training in this area, and Louis seems to be gifted to communicate what he has learned over the many years he has been leading worship. This course has been recorded on DVD in Afrikaans with the aim of providing Afrikaans churches with a training tool to equip their worship teams and pastors.
Louis is married to Hettie and they have three children, Idalise, Pero and Simoné. Hettie is a trained Speech Therapist who pioneered and leads Evergreen Parenting and Tall trees Training. She is the best-selling author of Growing kids with character and many other books and is an anointed public speaker.
Louis and Hettie are also known for surviving an armed robbery and rape at their home during 2010. Their public profile caused the insident to become front-page news, and their testimony of healing, hope, forgiveness and freedom from fear has encouraged thousands of people as a direct result. They frequently witness and minister about these topics and Hettie’s book ‘Vreesloos Vry’ (Fearless, Free) that tells their story has been helpful to many.
