Jake Boerman // Director of Youth // firstname.lastname@example.org
As the Director of Youth at Wellspring Church, I am passionate about seeing young people know and grow in their relationship with Jesus! From our gatherings on Sunday evenings to trips and retreats, to seeking ways to cultivate relationships outside the walls of the church with those that do not know Jesus, I do my best to strive and ask God how we at Wellspring Church can see students glorify God by being and making disciples of Christ.
Dan Bolkema // Director of Operations // email@example.com
As Wellspring's Director of Operations, I handle the human resource needs for the staff at Wellspring, working with the HR team as well as oversee the finances, facility and grounds, as well as the Small Groups Ministry at Wellspring.
It's my goal to make sure we steward our God-given building and financial resources well, keeping them functioning for our ministry. I work closely with others to ensure we do this well, with accountability, and to keep our records up to date.
Small Groups is the primary way we fulfill the core value of Doing Life Together here at Wellspring. I ensure that people are placed into small groups, and that those groups are mentored towards Godly success. It's a great blessing when someone who visits our church (or simply attends and just hangs out on the sidelines) can be connected into the Wellspring Community through our Small Groups ministry. Knowing that the God-given need for community is being fulfilled by their Group, and that they are being discipled, is fantastic.
Andrew Boluyt // Assistant Director of Worship // firstname.lastname@example.org
As Assistant Director of Worship, it is my goal that Wellspring Church would experience our perfect God through every aspect of our services whether it be prayer, the Word, sacrament, or song. I assist in planning, organizing, and implementing services that give us opportunity as a church to crown Jesus Christ as King every week. My desire is to see our church passionately pursue and worship our God as a gathered body.
My role in leading the Young Adult Ministry is to give the eighteen to twenty-somethings in our church a place of safe and true community, as a stepping-stone between High School and Adult Small Groups. We continue to fulfill the Great Commission together by cultivating a mindset of discipleship and through the deep study of the whole Word of God. It is my desire that young adults at Wellspring would find a safe harbor in the midst of a very challenging stage of life where difficult questions can be answered and purpose can be found by seizing opportunities of service to our body, so that young adults might become a familiar face around Wellspring Church.

Jon Gamble // Director of Communications // firstname.lastname@example.org
Serving as the Communications Director, my job is to steward the messaging for Wellspring Church, internally to the staff, to the congregation and to the rest of the community outside of our walls.

John Klumpp // Director of Kids & Junior High Ministry // email@example.com
As the Director of Kids and Junior High Ministries, I have the joy and the privilege of helping kids find Jesus: In people, In the Bible, and In Life. As kids grow and move on to Junior High, we challenge them to connect themselves to Jesus Christ and the mission He would call them to. I believe that we best make disciples of Jesus in Wellspring Kids and Junior High by modeling what a life with Jesus looks like: rooting everything we do in the Good News of the Gospel throughout the Bible.
