Rev. Jason De Vries (“PJ“)
Pastor Jason came to FCF in June, 2013. Prior to serving in Walnut Creek, he was a church planter in Olympia, WA. Ordained in the Christian Reformed Church in 2011, he has served in various ministry capacities including ministry intern, youth pastor, church planter, pastor, itinerant preacher, and hospital chaplain since 1999. PJ is responsible for the majority of the Sunday preaching and pastoral care, discipleship, casting mission and vision, and administrative responsibilities. He loves teaching, learning, and talking about God’s Word and will for His people, and if coffee is involved, even better! He’s also a huge Oregon football fan (that is his alma mater, after all).
Jason holds a BA in Biblical Studies, a Master of Divinity from Calvin Theological Seminary, and a Level 1 certification through the Association of Clinical Pastoral Education. He is constantly dreaming about one day pursuing a doctoral degree in leadership and faith formation.
