Our Pastor

About Pastor

Pastor Vanderhoof moved to Menomonee Falls in 2019 with his wife Tiffany and their 3 children: Noah, Micah and Grace. He enjoys being in Brewers and Bucks country since he is a sports lover and has spent much of his life playing, coaching, and watching/attending various games. His favorite experience was going to Indianapolis for the NCAA Championship game when Wisconsin played Duke for the title in 2015.

Family time is precious to the Vanderhoofs who love spending time with their dog Zoey, playing games, going to movies and traveling the country! Pastor has been to 28 states and especially wants to visit Alaska. He fondly remembers trips to Washington D.C., The Smoky Mountains and Yosemite National Park. He’s also been blessed to travel to Israel and Germany and is looking forward to leading an overseas tour in the future.

Besides being a wonderful, fun, family guy, Pastor V is a caring, thoughtful and encouraging Christian man. He has a heart for evangelism which means he wants everyone to experience the peace that Jesus brings. He would love to get to know you better, whether you’re a veteran Christian or just starting to ask questions. Email him at cvanderhoof@pilgrimcares.org.
