Pastor of Care & Visitation
Greetings... I'm Rich Grevengoed and I was raised right here in South Holland. I was ordained as a minister in 1967 after graduating from Calvin College and Calvin Seminary. I pastored churches in Michigan and Chicago for fifteen years. In 1985 I earned a Doctorate in Pastoral Care and Counseling from Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago. For twenty-three years I was the Executive Director and a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor at New Leaf Resources in Lansing, IL. I live in South Holland with my wife, Barbara, where we enjoy time with five of our grandkids who also live here. I am excited to be a part of this ministry at First Reformed Church. I have experienced so much of Christ's love and care in my own life and I want to share that love with others in our Caring Minstry at First Church.
