Privileged to be born into a long line of preachers, Anton Bosch met the Lord Jesus Christ as his Saviour in 1968. In 1971 he entered the Theological College of South Africa for two years, completed the third year by correspondence and was awarded the Diploma in Theology. In 2005 he was awarded the degree Master in Theology cum laude. The title of his dissertation was “The pastoral and practical principles on which the churches in the New Testament are based”. In 2015 he earned his Ph.D. in Biblical Studies.
From 1973 to 1997 he served with the Assemblies of God in seven different congregations in South Africa. He also travelled widely ministering throughout Southern-Africa conducting seminars and as a guest speaker in various churches.
In 1997 he left the denomination and established Plumbline Ministries. He continues to minister regularly in churches throughout the world. Anton’s audio and written ministry reaches to all parts of the planet. In addition he is in daily contact with believers and leaders across the globe via the Internet. This new medium has been of great help to leaders and believers in remote parts who are not able to be in regular contact with other Bible-believing Christians and leaders.
In 2003 he was elected to the board of the International Fellowship of Christian Believers (formerly OFFI) with responsibility for the African continent and in 2004 was asked to serve as its International President. At the end of 2003 he was called to assist Burbank Community Church (Los Angeles, California) as it’s senior pastor. In 2009 the church moved to new premises in Sun Valley and is now known as Sun Valley Community Church (SVCC) where he continues to teach and lead.
It has been his life-long quest to rediscover New Testament Christianity and to call Christians and churches back to knowing, believing and living the Bible. He has planted a number of churches that are based on these principles. He is passionate about a correct exegesis of the Word and specializes in expository preaching and teaching.
