Our Staff


  • PASTOR

    Andrew Van der Leek - pastorandrew@trinitycrc.ca


    The best part of being a pastor is having a front row seat to see the great things God is doing in the lives of people and His Church. I have had this privilege for over 30 years, serving as a pastor to congregations in Edson Alberta (4yrs.), Prince George BC (4yrs.), Calgary Alberta (10 yrs.) and Vernon BC (12 yrs.). I am now thrilled to serve here in Abbotsford at Trinity Christian Reformed Church. God is doing some great things here and I can’t wait to see what he has in store for us in the future.

    If you are new to Abbotsford or to Trinity We would love to get to know you. Please feel free to call and set up a time for us to chat. 


  • Pastor of Congregational care

    Rudy W. Ouwehand - rudy.ouwehand@gmail.com

    I retired from full-time ministry at the end of August, 2012 after serving in four Christian Reformed Churches:  Grace CRC in Cobourg, ON, (5 years); Covenant CRC, Woodstock, ON (10 years); Agassiz CRC, Agassiz, BC (12 years) and Rehoboth CRC, Niagara Falls, ON (6 years).  My wife, MaryAnna and I moved back to Abbotsford, BC to be closer to our children and grandchildren.
    In November of 2012 I began a part-time ministry as Pastor of Congregational Care, focussing my ministry on working with the sick and the elderly as well as occasionally preaching at Trinity.
    It is my joy and delight to be able to minister to God's people at Trinity.  I have been greatly blessed in this ministry, and, by God's grace, I have been able to be a blessing to others as well.
    Please feel free to call on me for a visit, or for pastoral support at any time.

  • Youth Coordinator

    Steven VanderHoek - youth@trinitycrc.ca

    Serving youth and seeing them grow into disciples is my passion, and it is  now my privilege to serve here at Trinity as the Youth Coordinator. I have recently graduated from Briercrest College & Seminary in the frigid Saskatchewan praries where I spent my last four years in studies and spiritual growth. I graduated from Briercrest with a BA in Youth Ministry and a Minor in Psychology. God has been incredibly faithful during my journey and he has graciously led me to Trinity CRC to serve with the gifts and abilities he has blessed me with.
