Hello, and welcome to Vogel Center CRC!
My name is Danielle Hoekstra, and I have served as Vogel's Education and Outreach Director for almost 6 years now. I LOVE my job. I enjoy watching people develop in their faith and draw closer to our living, breathing Savior. My heart and passion are for people. At Vogel, I have the responsiblity to oversee all the programs and ministries, as well as organized outreach opportunities. We have an amazing ministry team here at Vogel, our volunteers truly enjoy the kids and students. We work hard to keep our kids safe, and to keep the Gospel front and center in each ministry and program. I've also been so blessed to watch our congregation open their hearts and lives to the people of this community. God is alive and working here at Vogel Center CRC! This is a wonderful place to belong.
I grew up in the McBain area, and graduated from McBain High School in 2007. After high school, I earned a bachelor's degree in Youth Ministry and Bible Theology from Kuyper College in Grand Rapids. I started working here at Vogel in 2011. I am married to my wonderful husband of 6 years, Daniel. We have 2 boys, Josiah and Joshua, who are our biggest blessings! Our family enjoys time in God's creation together, farming, hanging out with family, friends and students, and volunteering at church.
Come visit us sometime!
