Dean of Student Life
I am grateful for and excited about the opportunity to serve as the Dean of Student Life at Calvin Christian High School. Before joining CCHS in this role, I served as a pastor at Mars Hill in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where I worked on the kids, students, and adult ministry teams for over a decade. I am a graduate of Kuyper College and Grand Rapids Theological Seminary, and have lived and studied in the Middle East. I am a Certified Trainer for the Fuller Youth Institute at Fuller Theological Seminary and have served on the Editorial Board for the Institute for Youth Ministry at Princeton Theological Seminary. I’m also a sports-enthusiast, joke-teller, and food-snob.
My wife, Stephanie, and I have two young children and we live in Jenison, Michigan. We love offering hospitality, eating good food, being at the beach as much as possible, spontaneous adventures, and exploring nature.
