Waylon Vande Hoef loves to hear life testimonies. He’ll tell you his, too, of growing up in a broken home and learning about the hardships that many children face. At the age of 10, Waylon accepted Jesus as his personal Lord and Savior and later surrendered to the ministry at the age of 24. At New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, he earned a Master in Divinity with a specialization in counseling, which pairs well with his passion for working with families and pastors. Since joining our team in June of 2017, Waylon has used that combination of training and personal commitment to impact our ministries in Northwest Arkansas. He and his wife, Michele, have one son. In his free time, you might find Waylon reading or taking any opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors.
