Pastor Paul DeWeerd
We are privileged to have Rev. Paul DeWeerd as our pastor.
Please note that Pastor Paul will be on sabbatical until February 3rd, 2020 and will not be receiving any correspondence relating to church or pastoral care matters during that time. Please note that this contact page will be forwarded to the church office during that time and the appropriate contact will address any concerns you may have. Any matters sent to Pastor Paul personally will not be responded to until a suitable time after he returns from his sabbatical.
Paul DeWeerd and his wife Juliana share a passion for pastoral care and find great joy in connecting with others and hearing their life stories. They are also enjoying the triumphs and trials of parenthood as they raise their sons David and Luke.
Pastor Paul graduated from Calvin Theological Seminary in Grand Rapids, MI in May 2014, and was ordained as a minister in the Christian Reformed Church in February of the following year. Before his time at Vanastra Community CRC, Paul studied and served as an Intern Chaplain at Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services in Grand Rapids, MI and as a Student Intern at Madison Avenue CRC in Paterson, NJ.
