Holland Heights Christian Reformed Church Hires Lead Pastor


HOLLAND, Michigan - Holland Heights Christian Reformed Church in Holland, Michigan has expanded its pastoral staff by appointing Ralph Beidler as their new Lead Pastor. Holland Heights is committed to leading individuals in a growing relationship with Christ. Their mission is Rejoice, Strengthen, Reach. Holland Heights exists to rejoice and worship God, be strengthened and grow into fully devoted disciples, and to reach out, sharing and serving others in the name of Jesus.

Ralph brings passion and a genuine love for the church to his ministry work and daily life. His hope and vision for the church are to love God and love people more fully. He is passionate about leading people to live and love fully “today” because we are not promised tomorrow. He desires to lead a church that pursues holiness, purity, and unity. One of his gifts is shepherding, and Holland Heights is delighted to have him leading their church body.

Eric Albert, Executive Search Consultant shared, “I loved seeing Ralph connect with Holland Heights. He has such a personable pastoring way which was exactly what they needed. I knew that he would work hand in hand with Pastor George as they transitioned seats. After hearing what Holland Heights needed in their next season, it was clear that Ralph and Julie fit the bill!”

Ralph Beidler and his wife of 35 years, Julie look forward to returning to Michigan. They are eager to link arms in ministry with Holland Heights Christian Reformed Church.
