Join us for two special worship services, at 8:30am and 10:30am on January 18, when The Reverend Dr. Tom De Vries will grace the pulpit. (The Reverend Jonah Smith-Bartlett will preach at 5:00pm that day.)
Formerly lead pastor at Fair Haven Ministries in Hudsonville, MI, Dr. De Vries became the Reformed Church in America’s fifth general secretary in 2011. Since then, he has spearheaded the RCA’s new 15- year vision plan, “Transformed and Transforming,” which seeks to energize the denomination by cultivating transformation in Christ, equipping emerging leaders, and promoting mission locally and globally through youth engagement, creative ministry, and empowering congregations.
Dr. De Vries is a graduate of Wheaton College, Fuller Theological Seminary (M.Div.) and Western Seminary in Portland, OR (D.Min.). An expert church planter, he served as RCA coordinator for multiplication and revitalization and while at Fair Haven helped to start six new churches in West Michigan, Philadelphia and San Antonio.
