Lillian van der Westhuizen

Lillian van der Westhuizen’s passion is for people to have encounters with and experience the love of our Heavenly Father. Having been abused, homeless and fatherless, Lilian’s testimony is that of a woman who rose from the ashes to be a voice to women today. Her desire is that every person will 

have an encounter with God and be challenged to have a deeper love for Him and His people.

A powerful intercessor with a prophetic anointing upon her life, Lillian is passionate about raising and empowering women to walk in the fullness of their purpose. Lillian is the wife of Apostle Nicky Van der Westhuizen and the couple have two sons, Nicky Jnr and Migael. Together they founded NBCFC in 2014, a growing and influential ministry in South Africa.
