Lis Van Harten and Cecil Van Niejenhuis have been named to serve as co-directors of Pastor Church Resources (PCR), the Christian Reformed Church office that works to provide resources to pastors, church staff, councils, classes, and congregations.

Norm Thomasma, the current director of PCR, is stepping aside to serve as a senior consultant to the office as he looks toward retirement in 15 months.

“This process is designed to enhance the ministries of PCR and capitalize more strategically on the gifts, experiences, and aptitudes of the directly affected staff by moving toward a co-director approach to ministry leadership,” said Colin Watson Sr., director of ministries and administration for the CRC.
