Father and Son Attend Synod 2011

| |

Rev. Bruce Adema, the Christian Reformed Church’s director of Canadian Ministries, attended Synod 2011 with his son Seth this year.

Seth, 22, served as a youth representative. He is a doctoral student at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario.

“We wanted some more young adult advisers, and I knew that Seth certainly had something to contribute, so I suggested his name,” said Bruce, who has headed Canadian Ministries for five years and was previously a missionary to the Philippines.

Five years ago, Bruce attended synod with his own father, who was a delegate.
