Commissioned Pastor

Corey Buchanan went from convict to commissioned pastor.

When Ryan Bajema started working as director of youth ministries at First Reformed Church in Lynden, Washington, he never imagined he’d one day become the senior pastor.

In a troubled neighborhood along Van Ness Ave. in Fresno, California, gang activity, street crime, and drug abuse are commonplace.

And it’s along this stretch of roadway, which cuts through the heart of the city, where RCA commissioned pastor Raymond Moore and his wife, Tanya, do the work of ministry as leaders of Fresno House Church.
