Rev Blaak, "Pastor Bram", came to Bethel Church on September 1, 2002 from the Ebenezer Reformed Church in Stoney Creek, Ontario.
Our Pastor was born in The Netherlands, and moved here with his family in 1959. While attending Reformed Bible College, he met his future wife, Linda. The two of them were married in 1973. They have four children: Jennifer, Brian, Jonathan and Sara. They are also blessed with one grandson, Daniel.
Pastor Bram was ordained to the ministry of Word and Sacrament in 1981. The churches he has served are in Exeter, Ontario; Norwalk, California; and Stoney Creek, Ontario. All these churches, including Bethel in Brantford, are part of the Reformed Church in America.
only comfort in life and death is:
That I am not my own, but belong---
body and soul, inlife and in death---
to my faithful Saviour, Jesus Christ!
Stand in the power of God!!
