News and Events


The Pastor Nominating Committee/Session has exciting news to share! We have agreed to terms with Brad Vander Waal to become the new Pastor at First Presbyterian Church!

Brad is currently a Family Pastor at Midland Reformed Church in Midland, MI. Brad has other ties to the Midwest growing up in Pella, Iowa and spending time in St. Paul at Bethel University during Seminary. His wife, Lesley, is originally from the Mankato area and has family
in that area.

Brad and Lesley along with their 3 kids plan to move to the manse sometime in December and start at our Church in early January with his first Sunday of January 9th. We are excited to have found Brad and believe him and his family will be a great fit for our church and community!
