Lead Pastor, Executive Leadership Team
Pastors Sam and Brenda Rijfkogel have served at Grand Rapids First since 2006. Pastor Sam’s creative communication style brings a fresh perspective to sound biblical doctrine. His own family’s conversion is a fruitful testimony of world missions outreach and is the foundation of his deep passion for missions. He and his wife, Brenda, lead by example as they serve and love our community. Their greatest joy is spending time with their family.
