About Rev. Steve De Vries


Pastor Steve and his family came to Plymouth Heights in the fall of 2002.  Before coming to Plymouth Heights, they served as missionaries with the Christian Reformed Church in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, for 13 years.  In the years since they arrived, Steve and Lori’s kids (Marie, Sam and Charlie) have grown up and left home. So they got some new ones by way of Bethany Christian Service’s foster care program (Freddy from Guatemala and Jose from Honduras).  

Pastor Steve loves preaching and enjoys questioning some of the culturally conditioned perspectives people tend to bring to the Bible. He is committed to the neighborhood and has mentored students at Mulick Park Elementary School as long as he has been at Plymouth. He remains excited by all the opportunities God has given Plymouth Heights to invite neighbors to become disciples and to equip disciples to become neighbors.
