Pastor Zach Vandenberg
I was born just outside of Chicago, raised in small towns along the shores of Lake Michigan, and have moved around since then following the call of God to teach and preach His Word. My wife Jane and I have been married since 2004 and have 3 wonderful children. I earned my BA at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, MI in 2000 and taught Bible at a Christian high school for 6 years. Later, I studied at both Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, CA as well as Calvin Theological Seminary, again in Grand Rapids, where I earned my Master of Divinity degree in 2008.
My love for God’s Word and the way it is still so alive for our time has made it my aim to help people see how they belong inside of God’s story as he has revealed salvation through his Son Jesus Christ. I love talking and praying with people about the way the love of Jesus reaches into our lives in amazing, surprising ways to form us in faith.
It’s a big and beautiful world that God has made for us to live in, and I love to be out in it, taking in the both the culture of the city as well as the beauty of the ocean and the mountains.
