Van Veldhuizen Family

Zach and Caroline Van Veldhuizen - Brooklyn, N.Y.

ABOUT US: We have been married for almost five years. We have a beautiful 3-year-old named Bethany and have called Dallas-Fort Worth "home" for about the last five years. We love Jesus and live to proclaim the gospel as a family. We also enjoy watching TV shows together, playing games and joking around with each other. Some of our favorite books include: the Bible (of course), the "Master Plan of Evangelism" by Robert Coleman and "The Heavenly Man" by Brother Yun. We are planting in Brooklyn, N.Y., because we have felt a specific calling to New York City for the past seven years. Over the past two years, we have made numerous trips there and have developed a love for the people in Brooklyn. We are excited to join the believers in NYC to reach people for Christ Jesus and make disciples of the nations. We are serving in a residency program with the Bridge Church in Brooklyn this upcoming year and are planting Brooklyn City Church as lead church planters. We long to plant a gospel-centered, Bible-believing church that furthers the gospel of Jesus to people in NYC and around the world.

For my family as we look to build relationships with people in Brooklyn.

That the Lord continues to teach us to be servants to our community and to faithfully live out the gospel each day.

That the Lord will bring willing people to the churches in Brooklyn who desire to share the gospel and serve the community.

For us as a family, for our marriage, and for the people with whom we partner in Brooklyn.

That we may strive to be like Jesus and resist the devil in the power of the Holy Spirit.

For boldness in proclaiming the gospel.
