CRC Gets New Director of Ministries


The Board of Trustees of the Christian Reformed Church has appointed Sandy Johnson to be Director of Denominational Ministries.

Johnson, 41, comes to the position after 13 years working in the banking industry, followed by several years as a self-employed consultant in strategic ministry planning and organizational behavior.

“I have often said over the last five years that I’ve discovered my gifts are in business but my heart is about ministry,” Johnson said. “I love being part of ministry, watching how God is working through his people.”

Rev. Gerard (Jerry) Dykstra, the CRC’s executive director, said he is delighted with the appointment. “Sandy brings a fresh perspective and approach to our senior leadership team,” he said. “Her business background and local church involvement provide a balanced approach to effective and efficient ministry.”

Johnson lives in Hudsonville, Mich., with her husband, Deloy, and their three daughters. She will take up her new duties Sept. 1.
