Jamie DeVries - Pastor

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 spend 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 Covenant, come say hi, so we can get to know one another. 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!
