A long succession of students, part-time preachers, and pastors served Sycamore Church for short periods.
During 1949 and 1950 a young seminary student named Theodore Kalsbeek served as summer student pastor and, in 1951, Rev. Kalsbeek was called as our pastor and served in that role more than 40 years. Under his leadership Sycamore Church grew from thirty worshippers in that one-room country church with wood stoves and outhouses, to a congregation of over 1100 members and an extensive church campus.
On March 21, 2004 the congregation unanimously called the Rev. Dr. Larry Kent, who had previously served in multiple pastoral positions at First Presbyterian Church of Flint, Michigan, to be the installed Head of Staff. He began his role as Senior Pastor on June 20, 2004 .
Under the leadership of Rev. Kent the church has broadened its mission and its ministry to the congregation and the community.
Sycamore Church hosts two services every Sunday morning, a vibrant Church School serving infants through Senior High students, classes for adults at various times of the week, and lay leadership supporting the many activities for all age groups.
Then Jesus said to them all: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me." The journey of faith always begins with Jesus. Wherever you may be, join us on the journey as disciples of Jesus Christ.
