Pastor Adriaan and his wife Diana moved to Billings in late October, 2016. They were responding to God’s call to FAC, after serving six years in Brooklyn Park, MN. The Overbeekes are back in familiar territory, having served over ten years at a sister Alliance church in Cody, WY. Adriaan and Diana are empty-nest parents of five adult children living in five states: Anthony, Becky, Ashley, Stephen and Amber. That means plenty of road trips and air travel in their future.
When not involved in ministry, Pastor Adriaan loves to take pictures, to hike, camp, hunt and do all things outdoors. He is also an avid reader, and is a competitive board game player.
