Pastor Duane and Jeanie Vander Klok

Pastor Duane and Jeanie Vander Klok came to Resurrection Life Church in 1983 after leaving the mission field in Mexico. Pastor Duane became our Lead Pastor in 1984. Pastor Duane’s vision is the four pillars that make up the mission of ResLife Church. Minister the Word of God, minister to God through praise and worship, minister to children, and minister through local and world missions.

ResLife Exists to win Souls and make Disciples


It was November 5, 1967, when Pastor James E. Bugg, along with 34 others, met in a conference room of the By-Pass Motel in Grandville and held the first service of what would become Resurrection Life Church. This fledgling congregation then called the People’s Church, started as a place to connect and grow with fellow believers who found the Holy Spirit to be a reality in their lives, and to encourage others in this same relationship with Christ.

Our Focus

We want to show what God can do through us and for us, focusing on our four foundational pillars: Word, Worship, Generations, and Missions.


ResLife, as it is called by many, includes an array of ministries for children, youth, and adults. We also offer classes and groups. There are hundreds of team members who help Resurrection Life Church, a community of every color, position, or past, to welcome everyone and build a common focus on developing and encouraging each other toward Christ.

We Love People

Having a heart for the kingdom is something we’ve always been passionate about at Reslife. The desire we have as a church family is to continue to impact not only those within the four walls but also those in our community and world. This impact goes far beyond what we can see.
