Pastor Darren Hoogendoorn
Darren started with us as a student intern from Tyndale Seminary in September 2012. Since that time the community of Hebron has been his and his wife, Laurelle’s, home. He still continues to work through his studies part time and should, Lord willing, finish in December 2015. Preaching once or twice a month, helping with Youth and Young Adults, as well as Pastoral Visiting are all parts of Pastor Darren’s role at Hebron.
George joined the Hebron staff team in October 2015 when he started leading the Mandarin Ministry at Hebron. Since that time the ministry has grown substantially and continues to see lives changed by the Gospel everyday. In September 2016 George was examined and ordained as a Commissioned Pastor in the Christian Reformed Church. It has been a joy to work with George and his wife Janice, and we pray that God continues to bless their ministry.
Jenn Hoftyzer is our new Children’s Ministry Coordinator for the upcoming 2015-2016 year and we are excited to have her. A mother herself, Jenn brings an excitement for working with young kids to the Hebron staff and she passionate about seeing them grow in Jesus’ love.
Judy is very administratively gifted and is an essential asset to the Hebron team. If there is something going on with regard to the facilities or events at Hebron chances are Judy knows and is intimately involved in its planning. Often good administration can go unnoticed because we don’t notice administration till it goes bad. But here at Hebron we recognize that smoothness is because Judy has been working hard.
Daniel is the Hebron Church Worship leader and is responsible for both overseeing and directing the worship environment at Hebron. Daniel is very gifted as a musician and vocalist, and seeks to use those God-given talents to help lead others in worship as they encounter God. As we seek to be a Church of passionate disciples that makes passionate disciples worship is an essential component in the life of all disciples of Jesus. It is worship–encountering the living God in a manner that elicits praise for him–that transforms us. It is Daniel’s prayer that you would encounter God in this way.
As custodian Guillermo has the task of trying to keep Hebron clean and tidy, which for a building with a lot of traffic is no easy feat. But Guillermo is not just a custodian, he is very often the first face you meet when you walk in the doors. He is a greeter, coffee maker, conversation partner, and much more. We are very blessed to have him on the Hebron Staff.
Joanne has the important task of managing the Church’s finances and we are happy to have her as part of the Hebron Staff because she does an excellent job. If you have questions about tax receipts, or ministry budget items, etc. Joanne is the person you need to contact.
