Pastor Daniel Zylstra

Dan loves Creator-Sustainer God—the Great 3-in-1 God who is love. Why? Because that God loves Dan, and that God loves all people, no matter what! Dan is blessed to be a husband, father, pastor and, hopefully, a friend. He enjoys reading—a LOT!—especially Sci-Fi and theology. He is passionate about loving people, even though he’s not always perfect at it. Dan has served as a pastor since 2008. Before that he taught Theatre, Media Arts, English and Computer Technologies at the secondary level. Prior to that Dan did a variety of things, including painting houses and performing comedy improv.

He is eager to get to know you! You can contact him through email or by phone.

Pastor Samuel Cooper

After serving this congregation as pastor for 30 years, Meadowvale Church has gifted Sam to the city of Mississauga.  We are sending Sam into the city on our behalf to listen to the needs of the city, to continue to develop relationships within the city, and particularly to facilitate opportunities for the city to grow in its love and care for the poor. This is a tangible sign of a deeper understanding and connection between those in the Church who know they are the People of God gifted to the world with those who are not yet necessarily conscious of it. This is a partnership within the one family of humanity the Apostle Paul describes (Acts 17:22).

Pastor Sam will be in the pulpit occasionally to update us on his work. 


You can contact him through email or by phone.

Ken Dryfhout

Ken is a son of Meadowvale Church and now serves as part of our teaching staff as well as mentoring youth and youth leaders.  

Ken has spoken to thousands and thousands of youth, one on one, in small groups, and to auditoriums full of young people. Through these interactions he has discovered the rebellious and revolutionary power of love, friendship, and connection.

Once a month on a Sunday morning, Ken shares his passion for justice and challenges us to think critically about our faith, what "church" means and always, always, lands us in the love of the One who is in their very nature, love.  

If you would like to speak with him contact the office for more information.
