Jason Van Wyk

Campus Pastor // Orange City


Before becoming a pastor, Jason was an elementary teacher, youth pastor, pizza boy, telemarketer, farm hand, and after school program worker. He grew up on a farm outside of Sanborn, IA. After high school, he attended the University of Iowa. Upon hearing God’s call from teaching to vocational ministry, he began working as a youth pastor at Boyden First Reformed. Having little idea what a youth pastor did, he began attending Sioux Falls Seminary. During that time, God refined His call to pastoral ministry. The process of discernment and listening for God’s direction upon graduation have led Jason and his family to Living Water. Jason is married to Sarah, a community health nurse for Sioux County. They have four children; John, Luke, Saron and Jia. The family lives in Alton. They enjoy playing at the park, eating Chinese food, and just spending time together.
