Get To Know Us!

Our Mission & Vision

Our Mission is to invite all generations into God’s family.  We’re compelled first of all by Christ’s love for us.  In return we love God through worship,  the world through mission, each other through community, and root ourselves in Christ through discipleship.  We envision two “super powers” making us a dynamic community – the great commandment (love God and love others), and the great commission (make disciples).   These came straight from Jesus himself!

Leadership Team:

We recognize Jesus Christ as the head of His church.  All members are called to serve under His leadership.   We’re organized in Ministry Teams each focusing on a specific purpose.  We also have a leadership team called a “Consistory” that oversees the church.   In addition we have a team of full and part-time staff who have specific roles.

Intrepid Explorer. Passionate Pastor. Fruitful Father.

Randy  is an average guy living an extraordinary life. His conviction that everybody has the same opportunity led to his life calling. Since 1978,  Randy has been leading people on the great adventure of following Christ.

 Randy was blessed and prepared by his parents, family and extended Christian family at Midland Reformed Church in Midland, Michigan. Randy grew in the fertile learning environment of Calvin College – earning a four year degree in five years.

 While at Calvin, Randy began Christian Adventures. This outdoor adventure ministry immerses people in the glory of God’s creation through biking, backpacking, climbing, rafting, and kayaking adventures in the U.S., Canada, and Europe.

 After 23 years of trekking the planet and directing Christian Adventures, Randy graduated from Western Seminary, has served on the pastoral staff of two congregations and planted another.  Since 2008, Pastor Randy is grateful for the opportunity to guide the congregation at Trinity Church.  

 Randy’s biggest adventure has been as husband to Tracy and father to Daniel, Natalie, and Anna beginning in 2001. Being a father to triplets offers daily stretching and growing opportunities right at home.
