Our Story

Since 1993

The goal of the LINC family is to walk alongside each other to celebrate our successes, stand together during our difficulties, and challenge each other to reach new communities, people, and nations.

LINC was birthed out of Resurrection Life Church, a vibrant, rapidly growing church pastored by Duane Vander Klok in Grandville, Michigan. Visionary leaders from Resurrection Life Church began to branch out and plant churches in 1993.
