Hello, I’m Auke Rienstra and I have the privilege of serving Jesus as pastor at IBC Eindhoven! I’m a child of God, husband of Grace and father of four. I am originally trained for the financial sector however God gave me a stronger passion for – Bible based – Gospel centered preaching and teaching.

While completing my theological degree in the Netherlands (Evangelical Theological Seminary, 2008) I met my Australian wife Grace. During five years of church planting and evangelism in Australia I completed a masters degree in ministry in Australia (Malyon Theological College, 2018) before journeying back to the Netherlands.

Because of our mixed cultural family we love the international context of IBC. It already gives a glimpse of what it’s going te be like in the future 🙂

In a nutshell: I’m a nobody telling everybody about Somebody who can save anybody. It’s all about Jesus!

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me after a Church service, to send me an email at or to give me a text or call on 06-46453754.
