Pastors, Clerk, Elders, & Deacons

At Williamsburg CRC we have a selected council of leaders to direct the leadership of the church. From our elected elders, deacons, our stated clerk and our called pastors. 

Lead Pastor

Pastor Gregg

Pastor Gregg entered ministry later in life and with his wife Laurie at his side, he has brought his life full of experience to Williamsburg CRC. He is a graduate of Tyndale Seminary (MDiv) and Calvin Seminary (EPMC). He has two grown children and two grandchildren. His mission is to reach out to those in the church and those affected by the church, in order that together we grow into a deeper understanding of our faith, and see the relevance of Jesus Christ in our every days lives.

Youth & Young Adults Pastor

Pastor Joe

Joe came to Williamsburg CRC in 2011 after enduring and enjoying many years of university and seminary. He relishes the challenge of ministering to the younger generation of the church, having discussions about all sorts of topics, meeting them where they’re at and pointing them to the true joy that’s found in Christ. He and his wife, Kristin have four young children and enjoy the outdoors, especially the Morrisburg waterfront in the summer months.
