Meet Our Staff

Pastor: Harry Zantingh

I have been the pastor of the First CRC since 2010 and it has been a joy to be part of this church and this community.  My wife and I live here in Owen Sound and we have enjoyed the arts, the outdoors and the people of this area.  I am a father of 5 sons and grandfather of 3.  I began as an ordained pastor way back in 1989 and have served churches in Taber, Alberta, Alliston, Ontario and Ponoka, Alberta.  My passion and hope is to help people, and join with them, in learning about God’s love for us and how to love God and our neighbours.  Want to know more about me or our church or about God? Feel free to contact me.



Administrative Assistant: Shirley Visser

I have been the Administrative Assistant for our church since 2012. I enjoy my job and it is a joy and a privilege to work here!

I am a lifelong member of the Owen Sound Christian Reformed Church. In my role of administrative assistant it is my desire to help members and guests feel appreciated and cared for and to serve you with my organizational skills.

My husband Phil and I have 2 sons, 2 daughters and 3 precious granddaughters. In my spare time I enjoy scrapbooking and reading. Please call or email if you have any questions. I will do my best to answer your questions or direct you to someone who can. I’m in the office Tuesday through Friday 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.


Custodian: Corrine Hummel

A former pastor once told me that as Custodian I was also the 'Gatekeeper'. I always valued that title as I do my best to make our building a comfortable place to worship and study God's Word. I am thankful for my husband who helps when needed, for my five children who have helped many times, and my ten grandchildren who occasionally get to go to 'work' with Gramma.
