After 11 years pastoring at Mt Evelyn Reformed Church, Richard Schoenmaker and his family are on the move again.
Richard Schoenmaker and his wife Lesley moved to Mt Evelyn in 2006 from Wollongong, NSW, to be Pastor at Mt Evelyn Reformed Church. Over the years they have become a large part of Mt Evelyn, caring for their congregation and residents in the Mt Evelyn community.
His congregation will miss him and have appreciated his care, compassion and heart for the community during his term of service.
Richard and Lesley will be moving to Pakenham early next year to take the reins at Pakenham Christian Community Church.
Tim Wood, Youth Pastor at Mt Evelyn Reformed Church is also moving to Sonlife Church in Perth after being part of the pastoral team since 2009.
There is a farewell service this Sunday, December 18, at 9:30am.
We wish them all the best in their new homes.
