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.

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. And under the leadership of Pastor Duane, the church has continued to grow and provide a place where the Word of God is preached and lives are changed.

The Four Pillars of Our Mission

ResLife exists to win souls & make disciples

WORD

We teach the Word of God in practical, relevant, teaching styles to impact lives around the world. We are known as a source for solid Biblical teaching that is easy to understand and practical for daily living. Listen in on a service.

GENERATIONS

We’re partnering with families in training up the next generation. From six weeks old to college-age students, we have a place for every age to find a personal connection with God and grow in that relationship.

WORSHIP

Simply put, worship is pleasing God. It’s what we were born to do. We worship God both through our lives and when we come together each week. One way we do that is through music. With the power to affect young and old, music helps turn hearts toward God.

MISSIONS

Through community and world missions, we provide opportunities for the love of Christ to be shared all over the world through prayer and resources.

DUANE VANDER KLOK

LEAD PASTOR

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.

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