Bert Videler


Bert was born in Rotterdam, Holland.  After completing High School and serving in the Dutch air force he had a desire to immigrate to South Africa. This he did soon after getting married to Linda. He started work in 1968 at Atlas Aircraft Corporation in Gauteng.

In 1976 his wife Linda accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and saviour, and this messed his life up a bit. Not long afterward he too accepted Jesus into his live. With absolute commitment they surrender everything to Him, and said they would pay whatever cost to serve God. Bert and Linda ended up pioneering a Mission Church in Stormsvlei, this was amongst the farm labourers on a wine route. Here they saw how God by His love took whole families out of drunkenness, meaningless lives and transforming them into successful individuals. In the year 1996 they even experienced a major revival in the community. Farmers and farm labourers worshipping God under one roof, school teachers and students sitting under a tree on campus, weeping as the presence touched them all.

River Ministries asked them to relocate to East London in the year 2000 where they are still serving as shepherding pastors.

After 50 odd years of marriage, and almost 40 years in full time ministry, it is still Bert’s desire to see another outpouring on this planet.

Bert and Linda raised two boys. The oldest Ron, is now in full-time ministry and runs the education division in the same Ministry where they are at. Their other son Edwin, runs a successful lung practice in Cape Town. They are oupa and ouma of 5 grandchildren.

Linda Videler


Linda was born in Rotterdam, Holland where she finished High School. At the age of 21 she got married to Bert and in that very same year immigrated to South Africa.

In 1976 Linda accepted Christ in her life. She completed numerous Bible base courses and eventually with Bert uprooted from Pretoria to join a Christian Community life in the Western Cape. God then called Bert and Linda to pioneer a Mission Church in Stormsvlei, this was  amongst the farm labourers on the wine route. Here they saw how God by His love took whole families out of the dungeon and placed them with princes. In the year 1996 they even experienced a major revival in their church and in communities around them

The call came in 2000 to join River Ministries, where we are now shepherding pastors and running the intercession department.

After almost 40 years in ministry, it is still my strong passion to see God's people free from any bondage and walk in all the freedom, health, wholeness, prosperity and purpose God has promised us.

They raised two boys. Our oldest Ron is now in full-time ministry and runs the education division here at River Ministries, and our other son Edwin, runs a successful lung practice in Cape Town. They have five grandchildren.
