Jeremy Vander Galien - Senior Pastor
Welcome to Pine Grove. My name is Jeremy Vander Galien, and I serve as one of the pastors to the saints at Pine Grove. I've been happily married to Mandi nearly 20 years, and I have ten kids and kids-in-law (and to this point, one gorgeous grand-daughter) that I'm quite fond of (that's an understatement).
I've been a pastor for about a dozen years, and am very grateful to God to be part of Pine Grove. There is much to be thankful to God for in the people who are Pine Grove. Really. I'm not just saying that because I pastor these dear people. To prove it, I'd be glad to have you join us sometime. You are most welcome, and I hope you introduce yourself. In the meantime, if you would like to get in touch with our church, or with me, just click on the link under my name.
Jeff O’Malley - Associate Pastor of Congregational Life
Greetings! I’m Pastor Jeff. I’ve been married to my beautiful wife Becky since June of 2000. Since that time the Lord has given us five terrific children (Taleah, Marcus, Dolan, Judson, and Kellen). We highly value our family relationships and greatly enjoy our time together.
I came on staff at the church in October of 2008; however, we have been part of PGCC since 2003. I have a desire for people to grow in a meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ. I also have a passion to see thriving marriages and healthy families.
Marcus White - Associate Pastor of Worship
Greetings! My name is Marc. I am the most recent addition to the staff here at PGCC having joined in the fall of 2021. My wife, Amber, and I have been married since June of 2008, and we have been blessed with two boys and a girl (Calvin, Stanley and Claire).
As a minister of worship, the desire of my heart is to model and teach a "life-reformed" theology of worship. I believe that true worship is described as: doxological, Gospel-shaped, Word-centered, Christ-exalting and Spirit-filled. It must shape not only all we do, think, feel and say, but all our relationships in a life-touching-life way.
Terri Hansen - Ministry Assistant
I started as the Ministry Assistant in April 2014. Along with general office duties,
I love working behind the scenes to assist all the various ministries of PGCC.
I grew up in Rhinelander attending Calvary Baptist Church. I moved to Southern California in 1981 and was a long time member of Saddleback Church before returning to Rhinelander in 2005. I since became a member of Pine Grove and am excited for what God has planned for the church and my role here on staff.
