"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!"

We have been journeying in this new reality together for some time and have a passion for more people to experience the same. We have discovered that in the communion of Jesus Christ, we find freedom, bliss, love and our True Selves. That Christ has come to live in the hearts of believers and enable us to live in His; therefore we have an expectation for that reality to become known in the world. (Hebrews 2:14-18) Everything we do is in response to His goodness and love.


Kardia (Greek for the heart) is the name that the Holy Spirit gave us to represent the culture that we want to see established on the Earth and YHVH has divinely connected with others around the world that are on a similar path as us.

As a ministry involved with training, seminars, conferences and events, we are open for speaking invitations and networking. We are based in Cape Town, South Africa but our reach is across the globe!

Ruan co-founded Kardia with Meyer in 2016 out of a desire to see God's heart be manifested in believers. He recently finished a degree In Astrophysics and Applied Mathematics and is currently working as a research engineer for an artificial intelligence startup. He has a heart to see Sons of God at the forefront of innovation, stewarding what He is releasing for the world in order to have a sustained impact. He also has a heart for seeing AI used for good and for technology to benefit and enrich all in society.

Thyler and Rachel, lovers of Jesus, moved to South Africa recently after serving YWAM in Oregon, USA for 7 years. They have joined Kardia in the hopes of growing in sonship and loving their South African neighbors as Jesus would. They have a 3 year old son, Jonathan, and a baby girl on the way. They are excited to do ministry as a family and are loving experiencing the warm and friendly South Africa culture.
