Art DeBruyn, Lead Pastor
In Art’s own words: “I was raised in an atheist household and lived that life well into adulthood. At age 37, I realized Jesus loved and accepted me where I was, so I gave my life over to him, was baptized. However, Jesus never leaves where he finds us, and for me that meant leaving my career as an attorney, attending seminary, and then doing full time ministry as a pastor. My passion is to help people discover where Jesus is inviting them in their journey.”
Pastor Art was called to Center Grove Church as its pastor in the spring of 2015 after serving churches in Boulder, Colorado and Grand Rapids, Michigan. He and his wife Christy enjoy spending time with their three adult daughters, and Art’s hobbies include furniture building, home projects, hiking, camping, and kayaking.
