Meet Our Pastors & Elders

Senior Pastor Mike & Janette Young

Welcome!  And let me introduce myself – my name is Mike Young and I am the Senior Pastor & Elder at Newhall Christian Fellowship.  I was born and raised in southeast Grand Rapids, graduating from Central High School. I served 4 years in the USMC in the early eighties before working in the tool and die industry as both Journeyman and Plant Manager. I was ordained in 2004, and moved to Grandville with my wife Janette. We have been married since 1989.  We have a daughter, Melony, and 2 grandkids, Mason & Emerson.  Since being Born Again, I am no longer an alcoholic-atheist. My passion now is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

On behalf of all of us here at Newhall Christian Fellowship, I would like to invite you to join us on Sunday mornings as we celebrate the gift of grace – salvation.




Associate Pastor Travis & Julie Koeman

We live in the Grandville/Wyoming area with our three beautiful daughters; Hannah (11), Isabel (9) and Paityn (8).  Travis grew up in the Holland area and Julie grew up in the Newhall area of Wyoming, and we have been married for 19 years.  Julie works in cancer research and serves in the church nursery. She has a passion for seeing people healed spiritually and physically, and she enjoys praying for people and helping people in that process.  Together we lead a LIFE Group at the church.  Travis serves as an Associate Pastor and Elder.  He also is the Director of LIFE Groups and the Office Manager.  Travis’ passion is teaching, discipleship and missions.  We get excited when we see people’s lives changed by the saving life of Christ and His Word!
