Elevation Staff Multiplies

Elevation Staff Multiplies

Lots of good changes are brewing with Elevation Church in Wyoming, MI!

First, Pastor Chris has taken advantage of a tremendous (part time) opportunity from God and has stepped back into the world of nonprofit affordable and green housing through the Inner City Christian Federation (ICCF). This is a part time role supervising the construction and remodeling of 177 recently purchased homes. This part time role (did I mention it's only part time?) will allow for him to continue leading Elevation as well, preaching most Sundays and will let him work in the field he has worked in since 2003. It also means some responsibilities have been given to other leaders in the church. Which leads to the next change…

Please welcome Ross Graveling! Ross is our part time Pastor of Discipleship & City Groups (City Groups are Missional Communities). Ross brings a rich history of missional living and ministry leadership including completing the SOMA Church Planting residency, serving as Youth Pastor at Calvary CRC (Holland) and Peace Reformed (Zeeland). He has been recommended to become ordained as a Commissioned Pastor. He will help equip Elevation live into our identity as “a family of missionary servants” who make disciples who make disciples.

We are also excited for this next change: Administrative duties will now be handled by part time Church Administrator, Breanna Bouwman. Breanna has been with Elevation from the start (way back in the days of the Hall’s living room). This new role will make Breanna the primary administrative contact for the church as she implements systems and processes to encourage mission.

Pastor Tim continues serving as Pastor of Worship, handling the Sunday morning service, while pursuing his M-Div through Calvin Theological Seminary. 

So here's the new lineup...

Lead Pastor: Chris Hall

Pastor of Worship:  Tim McHugh

Pastor of Discipleship & City Groups: Ross Graveling

Church Administrator: Breanna Bouwman
