Rev. Vance Hays

Parklane Christian Reformed Church
16001 SE Main Street
Portland, OR 97233
Our Pastor, Vance Hays, has been at Parklane Church since 1989. He is a native Oregonian, a graduate of Bend High School and the University of Oregon. He began his work in ministry in 1975, serving as a campus pastor with Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship in Salt Lake City, Utah. Following two stints at seminary (Westminster in Philadelphia, PA and Calvin in Grand Rapids, MI), he felt the Lord leading him into church ministry and believes he has found his true calling.

"I like to preach, I think it's my spiritual gift," he says. "I also enjoy meeting new people, leading them to faith in Jesus and into a new relationship with His church." He also plays alto saxophone and enjoys being a part of Parklane Church's worship band.

Vance has been married to Connie since 1977. Together they have five children: 1 married, two in college and two still at home. He enjoys reading, hiking, spending time with family whenever possible. He is a dedicated fan of the Oregon Ducks, his favorite team since he was 9 years old.
