Antwerp Christian Fellowship is led by servant leaders including our pastor and his wife alongside our elders. Meet our team.
Trent and Julie
Pastor Trent and Julie have served in full-time pastoral ministry for more than 35 years. Trent has also served as a hospice chaplain and as an adjunct instructor at the University of Northwestern-St. Paul. Julie worked for UNWSP, as well, organizing and leading domestic and international ensemble music tours and directing the University’s community music school. Trent and Julie have two adult children living in the U.S. and a daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter in Bangkok, Thailand. Together, they share a passion for international travel and cross-cultural ministry.
For Trent, the opportunity to pastor an international congregation is the fulfilment of a long-term desire. He is committed to the preaching and teaching of God’s Word and to the growth and development of the local church body. In his service to ACF, he seeks to promote the work of God’s grace in and through the life of the congregation and its individual participants so as to impact Antwerp and the world beyond for God’s glory.
Jan-Willem and Eun Jung
Living with their two daughters in Antwerp, they have served in the ACF community since 2010. Before that they lived in New York City, where they worked at Hope for New York as part of Redeemer Presbyterian Church.
Challenged by ‘the Kingdom here and not yet’, they are grateful for life with and for God. Eun Jung, originally from South Korea, teaches at university and leads the ACF youth ministry. Jan-Willem, a native of Antwerp, is a technology entrepreneur and chairman of the ACF VZW board.
André and Georgia
With André raised in a reformed tradition and Georgia pentecostal, it quickly became apparent that faith and tradition are virtually inseparable. What started out as a 3 year study abroad program for these South African “newly-weds” slowly turned into a journey that led to the questioning of one’s culture, traditions and values and the discovery of true freedom when the name of Jesus Christ is called upon for the forgiveness of sins. Throughout this journey, and still continuing to this very day, it was the people attending ACF, answering the call to serve Him through their actions and their words, that have left an impact that will last a lifetime.
We are blessed with many ministry leaders and deacons who faithfully give of their time and talents to oversee various areas and programs at our church. To learn more about our ministries, see “Our Ministries” page. https://antwerpchristianfellowship.org/our-ministries/
