Evangelist Angus BLegend has it that once in a lifetime; every writer comes across a story that is not a story at all. In writing the article, s/he is consumed. Challenged by the honesty and faced with the decision of diluting the article with rhyming technical precision, or letting it stand in its truth.

– This is undoubtedly one of those moments. In writing this article, one is challenged, confronted and moved. Its beauty lies in its simplicity. It is what it is: unapologetic and frank, honest to say the least. Very few if any men are willing to speak the truth in a loving, yet unadulterated manner.

Here is a man that needs no introductions. You may have seen him on his regular TV programs across channels, read one of his more than 20 books or attended his packed to capacity crusades. He is none other than Angus Buchan.

Here is an Evangelist who is happily married to Jill for almost 40 years! He is also the father of five children who are married, grandfather to nine, father to 27 children at the orphanage on his farm. They have a church on their farm with services every week and a resident pastor who is one of his spiritual sons. He modestly describes himself as “a farmer who met the Lord Jesus Christ on the 18th of February 1979.”

This “5 minutes” with this man of God can and will most likely change your life in some way. Read for yourself:


What gets you up each morning?
What gets me up every morning is the excitement of waiting to find out what God has in store for me that day. I am like a young child on Christmas morning waiting to see what presents I have received.

You are married for over 30 years. How?
Well if we look at the book of Ecclesiastes 4:12 the Bible says though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand Him but a threefold cord is not quickly broken. So in a nutshell, this is the reason why I am happily married. Our marriage consists of Jesus, Jill and I. I love my wife more today than the first day I met her. She is more beautiful to me than ever. It is because Jesus Christ is the centre and focal point of our marriage.

In a time when so many marriages fail, what is your secret?
I think that I have already given you that one.

How do you manage to hold on to your faith through life's valleys?
It is quite simple. I get up in the morning and spend time with God. “First the mountain (with God) and then the ministry (people)”

What advice do you have for our brides and grooms to be?
Do not be unevenly yoked. You cannot marry somebody of another faith. It will be a very difficult path to follow. It is like two oxen trying to pull a cart and they are pulling in two different directions. That cart is going to go nowhere. You really need to be one in the spirit first and then you also need to develop a good, strong friendship. You need to keep yourself pure until the day of your marriage.

Not everybody on our site has that special "someone". Some are divorced, separated, widowed, single or just barely holding on. What can you say to that dear one who has given up and lost hope?
For those who have given up, those who have been through a divorce, those who are separated, widowed or single you need to understand one thing.

When God forgives, He forgets. If you have done something wrong, repent. 1 John 1:9 says “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Then you need to move on with your life and never go on that road again.

The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:17, “If any man or woman is in Christ, they are a new creation. Old things have passed away, behold all things have become new.” So there is no more condemnation for those who are in Christ, Romans 8:1. Therefore start afresh and keep on.

I believe that Peter saw and knows something that no other person knows. For that one moment, he looked at Jesus face-to-face. He met God in the storm. What do you know that you did not know from your near death experience and Jesus scooping you up just in His time?
In 2009 while I was preaching to the biggest crowd of men that I have ever seen in my entire life, I had two heart attacks. The first one was underneath the platform and the second one took place at my house, which is about a kilometre away from the meeting. What I learnt from God through that devastating experience was that life is but a vapour. We must not waste time. I learnt that word brevity, which means the briefness of life. We must not waste time, holding offences, having unforgiveness in our lives. We must press on and live our life to the full.

Do you believe in true love? If so, what/who is love?
YES, absolutely! God is love. 1 John 4:7-8 (New Living Translation) says: “Dear friends let’s continue to love one another for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God, but anyone who does not love does not know God for God is love.”

What projects are you currently working on?
We have a few new books coming out this year.

  • "The Bible in 366 days", which contains my favourite Bible passages for men. I am very excited about it because there is always a lot of literature written for women, but not always for men.
  • We have a brand new devotional coming out, called “Time on the Mountain” in October this year.
  • "Daily Planners for 2013"  will be coming out near the end of the year.
  • We have just released "The Mighty Men Journey" which is a collection of all the Mighty Men Conferences that have taken place and are still taking place all over the world. It is a definite collector’s piece.
  • Family Time with Angus” can be seen on E-TV, God TV, Trinity Broadcast Network (TBN), and a few other channels. We are so excited to be able to bring the Word of God into people’s homes!
  • The movie: “Angus Buchan’s Ordinary People” is now available on DVD. It is a must see!
  • Other than that, I really enjoy writing columns for a few magazines, namely Farmers Weekly, Landbou, Vision, Joy, Juig and My Mag.
  • All new releases and updates can be seen on our website www.shalomtrust.co.za

Do you have any message to Wedding Anthem?
Yes I do, I really want to endorse your webpage. I thank God for people like you, who are prepared to give young people practical, Godly advise for their wedding, especially in the area of the actual service, weddings vows etc.

I want to say to young couples that are thinking about getting married, next to giving your life to Jesus Christ (which is the most important decision that any person will ever make in their lives), the second most important is choosing your life partner. When you pray on your wedding day you will make an oath to God that this will be until death do you part and that stands. So we need to be sure that we make the right decision. The only way to do that is to hear from the Lord. The good news is that it is not difficult; God will confirm it clearly for you if you dare to ask Him.

Is there anything else you would like us to mention in the article?
I am all in favour of short engagements, not longer than a year. The man must make the decision, either he is going to marry that girl or he must break it off. The flesh is very strong and if he doesn’t make serious decisions you can end up sliding into a life of fornication.

You may not sleep with anybody unless it is your husband or your wife. So to avoid that, if you fall in love with someone you propose to them. It is not how much money you’ve got in the bank, it is about whether you love each other or not.
