Chad Schuitema, Synod Executive/Clerk/Treasurer

The Synod Executive works to further strengthen relationships and provides helpful resources to our region, available for whatever way our classes and churches may need. Part of Chad’s gifting and training is in managing anxiety and developing healthy systems as well as helping churches engage missionally with their community. Chad will coach leaders, represent our region in relationship to the RCA, and connecting churches to the RCA. Chad will also help churches navigate the issues facing our denomination in regards to the Vision 2020 process and look to create a compelling case for ministry together as God continues to use us and bless us in the future.

Wayne Van Regenmorter, Coordinator for Multi-Ethnic Church Partnerships

The Coordinator for Multi-Ethnic Church Partnerships works specifically with Classis de las Naciones, the other classes’ church multiplication teams or churches in our region sharing resources, events and opportunities, especially in Hispanic church planting. The CMECP connects with existing RCA churches and leaders of emerging churches in sharing best practices from growing multi-ethnic leaders and their churches and community. Wayne helps to identify discipleship pathways, launch networks to support and promote disciples making disciples, resource church planters in the process of RCA certification, training and strategic planning. Wayne also works to recruit new congregations and leaders into the RCA and help them in the process of ordination, commissioning and inclusion into the RCA, so they are equipped for ministry and theologically aligned with the RCA.
