JAY VAN GELDER
I was born and raised in Orange City, Iowa. The plan for my life was to be a hog farmer, but God had bigger plans. He called me into youth ministry in 1996. I have been enjoying being the Youth Pastor at Hope Church since 2008. My lovely wife, Shantel, and I have been blessed with two wonderful daughters, Shayler and Kamdyn. As a family we enjoy swimming and showing cattle.
