Our Team.

The commitment of the staff and leadership at Friesland Community Church is at the heart of what makes us a living, thriving church. They are dedicated to serving the community and strengthening the impact of our church on people’s lives.

Darrin Vant Hoff

Lead Pastor

Darrin grew up attending this Friesland church, but it wasn’t until his late 20’s that he became a Christ Follower. After that, his whole life changed. Darrin is now “back home” after serving in multiple pastoral roles at a church in Madison Wi. for 5 years. While Darrin loves Madison and the city, he also loves Friesland, the small town he grew up in, partly because it was back in the small town of Friesland where he met his wife Michelle.  Darrin and Michelle served in the student ministry together as friends, dated and eventually married in 2021. 


"We are excited that Friesland Community Church is our home and we cannot wait to see what God will do in and through this church. It is our honor to help lead the church in the next chapter of life."

Hope Cupery

Interim Youth Director

Hope has been investing in the youth of our community for years through roles at her local church and Randolph Christian School where she teaches 3rd & 4th grade. She has always been passionate about helping kids know the love and grace of Jesus. Currently, Hope serves at FCC as the Interim Youth Group Director leading Wednesday night ministries for Middle and High School students.


"It's my privilege to love on the kids of this community! I love helping them navigate the pivotal years of middle and high school, and look forward to seeing how God uses each student wherever He leads them."

Noah Cupery

Ministry Intern

Noah grew up going to Children of Light, KAOS, and Sonlife here at Friesland Community Church. It was there where his passion for ministry began and God has since called him to serve the local church. Noah is currently a Senior Bible student at Maranatha Baptist University and is excited to see what God has for him next.  Currently, Noah serves on the worship team and the Teaching/Preaching Team, preaching once a month. His role as an intern includes various administrative tasks as a support role to Pastor Darrin. 

"I am excited to serve FCC in whatever way I can. I love this church and it is a privilege to be front row to what God is doing in and through the lives of everyone at Friesland Community Church!"
