Pastor Rod is a relationship-driven, and team oriented Christian Reformed Church Ordained Minister with a strong youth and college ministry background. His goal as a Pastor is to lead people on a journey towards discovering who God is and the grace of Jesus Christ.
His partner in life and in ministry is his wife, Joanne. Together, they are visioning to see how God is planning to bless the community. They are currently focused on helping build opportunities for people to connect and grow spiritually.
When they are not busy with ministry activities, they are thoroughly enjoying time with their three daughters and getting to know the Fox Lake, WI and surrounding areas.
Keith, his wife Jess, and daughter Eden, join us from Waupun, previously living in Kansas. As a worship director, Keith’s heart is to see Christ glorified. As a servant leader, he hopes to join with fellow believers to worship through songs, scripture, and the message of Jesus. 


Keith and his wife partner together in ministry, and Jess serves as the City Life director in Waupun. Together they lead in many ways and hope to have a lasting impact by the grace of God. 


They enjoy nature, as long as there are no snakes, and as new parents are excited to raise Eden in the local church and as a part of the local community. 


Favorite Bible Verse:  Colossians 3:16-17 

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”
