Following God’s leading to accept a call to PHCRC in 2010, Greg Janke serves as the Senior Pastor responsible for leading, caring for and spiritually feeding the PHCRC congregation. This includes primary responsibility for the preaching and teaching of God’s word, along with carrying out God’s vision for PHCRC in leading the staff and congregation. “It is my desire to see everyone – from our youngest members to our oldest – grow in faith and in knowledge of Jesus Christ; becoming more and more like Christ each day,” says Greg. “I hope we become the kind of congregation that welcomes everyone, reaches out in love to those who are seeking Jesus, and helps everyone become more deeply rooted in Him.”
Greg graduated from Calvin College (Grand Rapids, Michigan) with a B.A. in English Literature and went on to receive a Masters of Divinity from Calvin Theological Seminary (Grand Rapids, Michigan). In recent years he has also been working towards a Masters in Theology. Prior to accepting the call to PHCRC, Greg spent 5 years as the Director of Enrollment at Calvin Theological Seminary. Before that, he had served as the Senior Pastor for congregations in Crown Point, Indiana and Hudsonville, Michigan. He and his wife Kim have three children, two of whom are married, and four grandchildren. In his free time, Greg enjoys reading, biking, golfing, cooking and spending time with his family.
