We are so blessed here at HCC to have such an amazing, caring and charismatic team of Pastors that are here to serve! We pray that you come, and feel at home in this beautiful church family, whether visiting or putting down roots, we’d be happy to have you come and join us! (Sundays at 10:30am)

Pastor Terry and Donna denBok retired from Hope in December of 2019, we are currently seeking Gods guidance on our Next Lead Pastor, But in the mean time the following people are working tirelessly to make sure everything church related runs smoothly. 

Pastor Maren & Eric Brandsma 

(Associate Pastor)

Pastor Maren & Eric came on board with us in January of 2018, bringing with them over 20 years of experience assisting Pastors in any area they were needed. They are the Founders of 4 HIS Ministries and have been on the road in ministry for the past 12 years.

They are now in a place in their lives where they feel that God is asking them to make a home more permanent and place some roots — we are very grateful that they chose Hanover to do so!
