rev-jen-150x150Pastor: The Reverend Jen Van Zandt

“Rev Jen” embodies the personality and joy of our congregation. She came to ministry as a second career, following God’s calling from her job as a business coach. Her experiences bring her a gift of empathy in dealing with the struggles that are encountered in today’s world. Her spirituality, intelligence and dedication to God’s love and joy lead our congregation towards an inspired and fulfilled Christian life.

We welcome you to see her in action during our Sunday worship services. Pastor’s office hours are Tuesday to Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. or by appointment. Please call the church office or email us.
