Meet the Pastor

Hello, welcome to our website. My name is Greg Dyk and I am the pastor here at the New Era Christian Reformed Church. My wife Kay, and I have been living and serving here in New Era since June, 2011. Growing up in the flatlands and prairies of southwestern Minnesota we are learning to love and enjoy the wooded confines of western Michigan. God has blessed us with four children, two daughter-in-laws, and two grandchildren: Justin (30), his wife Julie and their children Emerson and Beckett, Jordan (26) and his wife Kristin, Jaleesa (22) and Jaxon (9).

I have not been a pastor my entire adult life. Our married life began on a farm starting our family while raising cattle and hogs with my father. After 9 years of farming we purchased and ran a small town grocery store for 5 years. At the time we were not aware of it, but God was using these experiences to mold us and prepare us for what God had in store for us. In summer of 1997 I could no longer ignore the calling God had placed on my heart in the middle of all the restlessness I was struggling with. I went back to school and graduated from Dordt College in 1999. We then packed up our family and moved to Grand Rapids, Michigan in order to attend Calvin Theological Seminary. I received my Master of Divinity Degree in 2003 we took a call to serve the congregation in Sanborn, Iowa. 8 years later I accepted a second call to New Era.

God continues to bless us abundantly and faithfully as he promises those who put their faith and trust in him. Each congregation we serve blesses our lives in unique ways. Our calling is to share the blessings of God’s grace with his people so that we can share this blessing in the community that we live in. You are welcome to come and worship with us or visit with us and share in the richness of God’s love.

Shalom,

Pastor Greg Dyk
