Pat Vander Pol

Office Manager & Volunteer Coordinator

Pat became involved in JFA ministry in the early 80’s.  First, as a volunteer on a service and learning trip to Voice of Calvary Ministries in Jackson, MS in 1982. Through that trip, she was hooked on discovering more about the beauty and diversity of God’s Kingdom and how she could participate in it. Pat became a JFA board member shortly after that trip.  In the late 80’s she was hired as the first JFA employee. In 2015 she ‘retired’ but is excited to be back! 

Pat lives in Rock Valley with her hubby, Warren, for more than 50 years. God has blessed them with four children and twelve grandchildren. They are members of Trinity CRC. 

Pat brings so much to JFA. She is gifted at making others feel appreciated and welcomed.
