Rev. Everett Vander Horst

PASTOR

Pastor Everett joined the team at Meadowlands Fellowship CRC after pastoring in churches in Telkwa, British Columbia and Grand Rapids, Michigan. He serves our church in a variety of ways, including primary responsibility for preaching God's Word on Sundays, providing pastoral care, and participating in leadership tasks such as planning overall ministry strategy and direction setting. He enjoys helping people make the connection between the Word of God and their daily lives through the calling that we have received to love the Lord and love our neighbours both nearby and far away. When not busy pastoring and preaching, he enjoys playing board games and watching movies with his wife, Christa, and their three children: Laura, Eric and Jason. He can also be found making shavings at the lathe in his woodshop.
