My name is Adrian de Lange. I began as the Senior Pastor at New Life Church in the summer of 2014, when my wife Kaylee and I moved to Grand Junction from Grand Rapids, Michigan, where I received a Masters of Divinity degree from Calvin Theological Seminary.
When it comes to being a pastor, I emphasize leading and learning in three areas: preaching, community-building, and small group discipleship. I have a passion for meeting with people, sharing joys and struggles, and challenging and encouraging others to think about the “big” things of life. I’m also blessed with a wonderful council (elder & deacon board) and lay leaders in the church who support and encourage me, along with many others.
In my free time, I enjoy biking, hiking, cooking, and reading. These are hobbies I love to pursue both by myself and with my wife. On top of those pursuits, I enjoy drinking coffee, tea, and good craft brews.
Grand Junction is a great place for us to call home, because I can explore so many of my interests here! But on top of all the geographical interests, another of my passions is helping people come to know the Lord and the wonderful life of being a Christian.
If any of that sounds interesting to you, give me a call or shoot me an email: I would love to sit down together over coffee or tea, pray with you, learn more about your story, and encourage you to find your place in God’s world.
