Rev. Dan Eisnor, Senior Pastor
Lauren and I have had the privilege of serving at 2nd Reformed since 2014. We have three children, Kate, Luke and Levi and Lauren is a teacher in Grand Haven. I graduated from Calvin College in 1999 and Western Theological Seminary in 2007. I enjoy watching lacrosse and football as well as collecting coins and rocks. My favorite book is East of Eden by John Steinbeck and my favorite movie is The Thin Red Line. What I love most about 2nd is that there is a strong sense of community and family amongst the people here along with a deep value for local mission and service. My favorite Bible verse is 2 Corinthians 5:14-20 “For Christ's love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again. So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God.”

Student ministry has been my calling since high school. In fact youth group is where I met Brittany, my wife! Today, we have a beautiful daughter named Soren Elise and are a part of the community here at 2nd. I graduated from Kuyper College (B.S., ’17) where I double majored in Youth Ministry and Bible/Theology as well as a minor in communications. Currently I am pursuing my Master of Divinity with concentrations in Youth/Family Ministry and Old Testament Studies at Calvin Theological Seminary. I am passionate about teaching students the way of Jesus from scripture and seeing lives transformed as they live into who Holy Spirit is shaping them to be. I love good food because I believe it’s the best way to make new friends. I own way more books than I will ever be able to read, and I am okay with that. I enjoy writing and playing music. Hockey is my favorite sport, but you can catch me at Muskegon Risers soccer games in the supporters section with a megaphone. I cohost The Narthex Podcast and occasionally write on discipleship and faith formation over at minformblog.wordpress.com.
