Cascade Fellowship CRC Hires Senior Pastor


Bill Whitt Announcement

GRAND RAPIDS, Michigan - Cascade Fellowship Christian Reformed Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan has expanded its leadership team by appointing Bill Whitt as Senior Pastor. Cascade Fellowship CRC is committed to the word of God and living it out faithfully. The church is built from various backgrounds with their beliefs and values holding them together and keeping their focus on Christ.

Jim Raterink, Search Committee Member at Cascade Fellowship CRC shared, “our team was mainly volunteers without much experience, so [Vanderbloemen] was able to make sure we had a plan and was always available to help with questions. We were amazed by Vanderbloemen’s size, scope, and approach.”

Bill Whitt has served in church ministry for many years and has a heart for communicating and building strong relationships. He has been called to teaching and leading and looks forward to shepherding the church body of Cascade Fellowship CRC. Bill has his Masters of Divinity and is an ordained minister of the Word. He has helped churches and nonprofits excel over the years, and we are confident that the Lord will use him to do the same in Cedar Rapids, Michigan.

Bill will be a great addition to the Cascade Fellowship family, his work in other areas of ministry will greatly influence his scope and insight into the church mission and values. Vanderbloemen is honored to have partnered with Cascade Fellowship CRC on this critical search, and we’re thrilled for them in this next season of pastoral leadership.


Vanderbloemen serves teams with a greater purpose by aligning their people solutions for growth: hiring, compensation, succession, and culture. Through its retained executive search and consulting services, Vanderbloemen serves churches, schools, nonprofits, family offices, and Christian businesses in all parts of the United States and internationally.
