Pastor Terence Europa is the president and founder of BOH7. He has been an ordained minister of the Assemblies of God for over 15 years. He holds a BA degree in theological studies from the Global School of Theology.
In 1998 he planted a church in Blue Downs, Western Cape, South Africa, which became known as Beacon of Hope AOG.
In 2008 he clearly heard God say that He (God) was changing his ministry from pastoring a church to ministering to the wider body of Christ. It was during this transitional phase of his ministry that pastor Terence and his family went to visit a church when the call of God for his new ministry assignment began. At this Pentecostal service pastor Terence had two prophetic experiences. While the congregation adored the Lord, a brother who stood behind him received a vision from the Lord. The Lord instructed him to share the vision with Pastor Terence. In the vision he had, he saw a huge farm and people coming out of the barns and even out of the ground. Everywhere he looked he saw people and joy all over the farm. This brother did not know who Pastor Terence was. He told Pastor Terence: “The lord said I must give this vision to you”.
At the end of that service one of the Elders, who knew Pastor Terence, came to him and said: “The Lord says, Pastor, you are called”. Pastor Terence stood there and thought to himself, “I know I am called “and wondered what this could mean. Pastor Terence kept what he received in his heart and for weeks he pondered over what he experienced in that service.
Three months later, he understood what God was telling him through these two prophetic experiences. The Lord was showing him that he was called to set God’s people free. Both the barns and the ground out of which the people came spoke of bondage people find themselves in. The joy the people expressed in the vision speaks of their liberation. The fact that the brother said: “The Lord says Pastor is called”, meant that this is the ministry unto which God called him. After he understood what God was telling him the Scripture that came to his mind was Luke 4:18&19 which says:
The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has send me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor”.
It was out of this call that the organization, BOH7 was birth.

He served as a youth director and sub-regional youth director under the auspices of the Assembly of God Association in the Western Cape. He also served as sub– regional chairman of the Northern Suburbs region of the Assemblies of God, Western Cape, South Africa from 2004 to 2009.
In 2014 he gave up his ministerial credentials with the AOG in obedience to the call of God for a new season of Kingdom ministry.

Under his leadership, since 2010, apostolic teams consisting of different denominations have been regularly taken onto missionary trips across South Africa.
