Our History

Rev. Joel Boot, 1983-1992
Rev. Joel Boot became the church's preaching pastor in February 1984, Rev. Harvey Kiekover was called in June of 1985 as the pastor of congregational life, and Rev. Edward Laarman became the youth and education pastor in September 1985. Nonetheless, under the leadership of Boot, Kiekover, and Laarman, the ministries of Calvin Church continued. Rev. Kiekover was instrumental in establishing the new Stephen Ministry program, which had begun just prior to his installation, and Rev. Boot continued the Calvin Church tradition of a recognizably Reformed worship service characterized by a regular order of worship, traditional sacred music, and excellent preaching.
