Leadership & Staff

Lee Street Church elects a Council of Elders and Deacons to serve as its governing body.  This group of men and women serve a three-year term in equipping the church to grow in faith, love and serve others, and be a disciple-making community.

In partnership with the Elders and Deacons, the Administrative Council is a group of men and women who are elected or appointed to focus on specific administrative functions of the church (such as vision/mission, facilities, finance, and human resources). If you have questions, please email the clerk of Council at clerk@leestcrc.org.

Pastors: Steve DeVries & Joel Van Dyke
Vice President: Pastor Steve DeVries
Clerk: Dave Bouwkamp
Treasurer: Dave DeVries
Deacon Representative: Judy Haan
Members at Large: Barb DeVries and Phil Ouwinga
Administrator: Rachel Bouwkamp

Elders and Deacons are privileged to come alongside the congregation with care and encouragement. Members are organized into households, alphabetically by last name for easy access.  Please contact the church office to get connected. (616.241.2105)
