Pastor Grant Vander Hoek
Married to: Jill
Children: Nate, Ben, Noelle, and Sarah
Both my wife and I are born and bred British
Columbians; Jill is from Abbotsford and I was born and raised in Langley. We feel blessed that we get to live in BC, close to friends and family and the mountains of course.
Jill is my wife and an amazing partner in
ministry, Jill also plays a huge part in our
children's ministry at Mission Hills. All of our kids are in Elementary school and just finished up hockey season.
In the summer, mountain biking; in the winter, hockey. In fall and spring, a little of both.
At about the age of 20, it was made abundantly clear to me that I was put on this planet to connect people to God. So, I went to school at TWU for my undergrad and Regent for my masters, graduating in 2005. In 2007, I was ordained in the Christian Reformed Church after finishing the denomination’s academic ministry requirements. All the schooling was tough slugging, but actually, being able to be a pastor makes it all worth it. There really is nothing better than connecting and helping people better connect with Jesus.
