Pastor Adriaan and Diana moved to Billings back in October, 2016. Over the years, they have pastored churches in Canada, Minnesota and Wyoming. Adriaan and Diana are enjoying the empty-nest stage of life, with five adult children who live in four different states. They especially like being close to their first grandson, Tobias, and look forward to another grandchild’s arrival this coming August.
When not involved in ministry, Pastor Adriaan loves to take pictures, hike, camp, hunt and do almost anything outdoors. Diana enjoys kicking back with a good book, loves crocheting things for moms with babies, and thrives on the challenge of beating black-belt Sudoku.
