Scott Vander Ploeg
I am the pastor of Sunlight Community Church, a Christian Reformed Church in Port St. Lucie, FL. I am married to a wonderful wife with two daughters and a third on the way. Our family is very devoted to following Jesus Christ. I am personally passionate about studying, teaching, and preaching God's Word. My wife and I first felt called to the foreign mission field and served for a time in Nigeria, but God had other plans for us and called us to a wide open mission field in the state of Florida. I really do believe that Port St. Lucie is one of the top mission fields in North America, so I have a strong evangelistic desire to reach people for Christ here. Since coming to Port St. Lucie almost six years ago, we have started several unique ministries including: Sunlight Christian Academy (a Christian preschool of about 170 students) www.sunca.org, Kingdom Builders (a ministry encouraging those who are transitioning into retirement to use their gifts, talents, and skills to further Christ's mission) www.kingdombuild.org, the Sunlight Discipleship Center www.sunlightcc.org/SDC/index.htm, and SunChurchTV www.sunchurch.tv.
