Brad Meinders

Lead Pastor

Who are you?

Disciple of Jesus. Husband to Melanie. Father of Braden, Morgan, Brock, Maisy, & Beckett. As a boy, raised in Iowa. As a man, I owe all to Jesus who raised me to new life.

What is your role at church?

Every day I am grateful to be the Lead Pastor. This role gives me the privilege to preach the gospel of Jesus on Sundays, provide leadership in our mission to “Connect People to Jesus,” strategically plan with our Ministry Teams, disciple young and old alike, and witness how the Holy Spirit continues to transform people’s lives.

Finish this sentence: Jesus is…

Jesus is … surpassingly greater than anything and everything.  Knowing Him has transformed me as a person, and I desire for everyone to see His worth and stand in awe of Him with me. 

“I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.  For His sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own … but that which comes through faith in Christ” (Philippians 3:8-9, ESV). 

What is your favorite bakery item?

Toughest question yet. I would have to go for a “Bee Hive” at Jaarsma’s. Not a traditional Dutch treat, but so good and sweet.  Excuse me as I go exercise by making a bakery run!

Verse of the Day

Anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
