We are focusing on warm hospitality and mission that extends into our community
of Hudsonville and Georgetown Township. We are always
learning more about the joy of naturally sharing what we know and experience
You are invited to join our journey with God who graciously calls us to him and wonderfully deserves our love and obedience.
Our staff and leadership work together to love, care and pray for our church family and friends. If you have any questions or prayer concerns, email a staff member or call our church office.
Born and raised in West Michigan, I'm no stranger to how our culture approaches church and pastors. The goal is to be different than the average pastor while creating deep relationships. Partnering with the awesome folks at Covenant Community Church, we hope to inspire a culture outside the norm.
After spending my early career in business, I felt like God wanted more from me and at forty-one I graduated seminary and started this ministry journey. Age and experience inform my perspective as a preacher and counselor and as a person in community with others. Relationships are vital to how we understand faith, life, and what God wants for us.
Music was my first love and I've spent the last fifteen years leading worship and playing in bands. I also love to cook and entertain. If you need someone to talk to, jam with, or eat with, then I'm your guy! Oh yeah, and students, I love hanging out with students. Six years in youth ministry has taught me a lot about teenagers and parents and video games!
When you visit CCC, come say hi, so we can get to know each other. God has amazing plans for us and I'd love to hear about your experience of that. There's a mission for us and our church, one that God has put in place: to love people! Come join us in that mission!

I have been married to my best friend, Gary, for forty-seven years. We have two sons, five grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. I have held several jobs which involved working with the public – cashier, school bus driver (retired after 27 years) and Administrative Assistant at my previous church prior to attending Covenant. Volunteering is in my blood. I served on the elementary school PTO’s when our boys were growing up, have been a member of AMVETS (American Veterans) Ladies Auxiliary for forty-seven years (holding several positions on the Local, District and State levels) and jumped right into volunteering here at CCC before I was even a member. I truly enjoy this work and being able to help others inside and outside of the church.
Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
