This is a photo of our pastors, Brad and Lynnsey Klooster.

Brad and Lynnsey Klooster began serving the congregation of Living Word North in July 2009 after Brad’s father, Pastor Gerald Klooster, was killed suddenly in a motorcycle accident in June 2009.

In spite of this tragedy, they transitioned into the pastoral role, and have grown to love and cherish the members of their flock.

Brad is ordained and Lynnsey is licensed through Mark Barclay Ministries in Midland, Michigan.

They have submitted their lives in ministry under the guidance of their pastor, Dr. Mark T. Barclay of Living Word International Church. They are committed to bringing the gospel message of Jesus Christ to northern Michigan in a relevant and meaningful way.

Brad and Lynnsey were married in 2002. They have since completed their family with the additions of their three boys Blake, Braydon, and Benjamin.

Although they don't have exciting salvation stories about their heart-stopping encounters with sin and death, they both have testimonies of God’s everlasting love and kindness in their lives. They were both raised in christian homes, and have served God from young ages. They have always been in an environment where God's presence was touching their lives. They want to share this life-changing message of Jesus with the people whom they come into contact on a daily basis.

Their vision is to see that every person will have the chance to truly experience Jesus in their lives. They feel that God's presence in their lives is not only a wonderful blessing, but a necessity for living in these last days.
