A little about me

My name is Bas Rijksen, and I’m a speaker. I love to teach truth and see people set free. I’m thrilled when people’s eyes are opened and hearts erupt with joy because of revelation about God through His Word.

In my role as a Discipleship Training School leader, I’ve helped train and teach hundreds of Christians to grow in their relationship with God and to discover their identity and destiny.

I’ve lead multiple teams on international mission trips which not only brought me to many countries, but has also given me a rich understanding of different cultures, what people’s greatest needs are and how to meet these effectively.

Jesus Christ and His finished work has a central place in my teaching ministry. I’m a big fan and promoter of the simple Gospel:

  • Jesus + something = nothing
  • Jesus + nothing = everything

Through my blog and speaking events I challenge people to be transformed by renewing their thinking and making their life count.

I’ve been happily married with Michelle for over 6 years. We have one daughter, Anouk. In my free time I enjoy reading, running, family, studying and drinking black coffee with friends.

What people are saying

People talk. Here’s what some of them say about my teaching.

Bas is an inspiring speaker with a great passion for sharing Biblical principles and truth. He doesn’t only focus on sharing knowledge  but also gives practical tools you can apply in your daily live. It is a pleasure to listen to Bas and to be in conversation with him. – Han ter Keurs, communication consultant

I know Bas to be a passionate teacher, but most importantly a passionate follower of Jesus, and lover of His word and presence. Bas desires to see the power of the cross and the truth of whom God is become manifest in the lives of those he meets. He speaks plainly about the cross, grace, our newfound identity as children of God, and about excersizing the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives. – Ruth Sikkema

I know Bas as somebody who wants to know the Word of God and act upon it, and who likes to equip others to do the same. He is a speaker who uses common language and thereby makes the Scripture easy to understand for everybody. I appreciate especially his way of dealing with misunderstandings and wrong interpretations of the Word, and that he inspires people to take their part in making Gods Kingdom come. – Ute de Vries, director Healing Rooms Amsterdam
