Marc Buwalda

Lead Pastor

Marc and his wife Chelsea have been married since 2007 and are the parents of two beautiful children, Holden and Hadley. They’ve been a part of the Pine Hills family since 2011 when Marc stepped into the roll of Student Ministry Lead. In early 2015 Marc and Chelsea began to prayerfully investigate God’s call on their lives toward church planting and in November of that same year, transitioned into a lead pastoral role and launched Pine Hills Kendallville. In addition to her full-time role as a stay-at-home mom, Chelsea is also a photographer specializing in family portraits. Marc and Chelsea both enjoy time spent together as a family, watching movies, and reading books.
