Daryl DeKlerk serves our church as lead pastor. His heart is to share the joy of being transformed by the grace of God in Jesus and to strengthen our community in loving and supporting others. He and Alicia moved to Vernon from southern Ontario in January, 2019. They have three children and a dog named Dixie. Daryl grew up on a farm and then studied business in London, Ontario. After meeting Alicia, God led them to serve people through the church instead of a business. He attended Calvin Seminary in Michigan and pastored Christian Reformed churches in Iowa and Ontario. He enjoys camping, snowboarding, hiking and coaching sports.
