Adrian Montzinger is a lawyer with additional qualifications which have given him the esteemed title of Advocate in South Africa. His logical, no-nonsense attitude and gentle manner has earned him the respect and affection of our entire community. He is from the Northern Capeof South Africa. Adrian makes his home in Stellenbosch with his wife, Candice, an optometrist, and their two small children, Olivia and Jaiden.
Adrian shares what it is like to be a part of East Mountain:
"I believe East Mountain serve[s] as a valuable bridge between young Christian leaders who anticipate or consider getting involved in active ministry or missions. It so often happens that someone hears the gospel, is converted, and has the desire to spread the gospel, but is not equipped with the correct tools to do so. I believe East Mountain can bridge the gap by providing the necessary foundation to equip young leaders to get involved in any field where ministry is required."
