Carol Bly, Administrative Asst. -

I grew up in Jenison and graduated from Unity Christian High School. In 1977, Dave and I got married and we now have 3 grown children. We moved to St. Joseph in 1992 and have been at the CRCSJ ever since.

Beth Wolf, Secretary -

I've been a member of CRCSJ since 1991. My husband, Jeff, and I are both lifelong residents of St. Joseph. We have two grown children – one married and in graduate school and one in college. I began working in the church office in 2009. It's a great privilege to serve the Lord and my church family in this way!

Lesleigh Wingate, Dir. of Youth Ministries -

I have been attending the CRCSJ since my husband, Josh, and I moved here in 2001. Raising our three boys in the church has given us many opportunities to grow and serve. I joined staff in 2017 and hope to continue using the passion God has given me for this church and his people in this role.

Erin Beran, Dir. of Education & Shared Ministries -

My family began attending CRCSJ in 2009 when we were looking for a church home that would help us to raise our daughters to know the Lord and to know His word as truth. Since my husband, Kurt, and I are both from Nebraska and most of our family still lives there, we have been very blessed by the way our church family has embraced and supported us. I love that God has now called me to a position where I can help strengthen the faith of others, kids & adults.

Will Burrows, Dir. of Worship -

We began attending the Christian Reformed Church of Saint Joseph in September 2020 after moving back to Michigan from Cincinnati, Ohio. I have served in various positions of worship and pastoral ministry over the past ten years, and I am very excited to be doing so once again. I am passionate about worship in the life of the church, and I am honored and humbled to serve the Lord in this way. We love our church family here at CRCSJ and we are grateful to be raising our family in this church.
