Minister of the Word

Our Pastor, Rev. Jonathan Van Hoogen is happy to minister in Boise, a place he has long called home. He has family roots in Boise and graduated from Boise High School. The path to ministry took him to Crown College in Minnesota and Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon. He and his wife, Vicki, met in college and will celebrate thirty nine years of marriage this year. He served his first pastorate after Seminary in 1987 in Florida. Later as a Church Planter with the Presbyterian Church in America he helped to establish new congregations in Idaho, Utah and Georgia. In 2006 he was asked to be an interim pastor to a United Reformed congregation and subsequently was called and installed as their Senior Pastor. Taking the opportunity of a call to establish a new United Reformed Church in Boise, Pastor Van Hoogen became the church planter and organizing pastor of Dayspring, preaching in Dayspring’s first Sunday morning worship service, December 23, 2012.
