You have support
The people pictured here are the people you are most likely to talk to when you have questions regarding the Cadet ministry. Steve, Sarah, Trevor, Russ, Kim, and Becky are your Cadet corps staff. Either Kim or Becky will be the first to field your call (616-241-5616 ext. 4) or email and handle questions about orders, registrations, finances, and general club information and will be happy to pass along information to or get you in touch with Steve, Sarah, Trevor, or Russ.
Steve is our Executive Director and from a big-picture perspective, he handles all things Cadet-related. You’ll find evidence of Steve’s involvement everywhere – he edits all Cadet publications and creates a fair amount of content for Cadet Quest, Bible lessons, newsletters, and other corps-wide communications. He also develops new ideas for Cadet curriculum, Cadet merchandise, and other ways of growing Cadets across the Corps.
Need a visit from a staff member? Have questions about Cadets? Need help with your club? Contact Steve!
Sarah is our Creative Director and Office Manager, so she is involved with the bigger projects of Cadets as well as the day-to-day operations. Sarah designs and manages the production of printed materials like Bible lessons, promotional materials, program resources, and more. She is also the Art Director of the Cadet Quest magazine. When not taking stock of inventory or managing projects, she updates resources to keep them current and relevant. She is instrumental in planning and organizing our annual Congress, and she works closely with Steve and the rest of the staff to develop new products.
Have an idea for a new product or Cadet merchandise? Need something new to help run your club better? Do you have questions about our products and supplies in general? Contact Sarah!
Trevor is our Junior Designer and Video Producer, and the latest addition to our Corps staff. He is the official Cadet photographer and videographer. He works closely with Sarah to design and update materials, as well as put together newsletters, and works with Russ to develop visual and video content for our social media and websites. In short, Trevor uses photography and video to help promote Cadets.

Marketing and Promotions Coordinator
Russ is our Marketing and Promotions Coordinator, which means he manages the content for our social media and many of our websites. He also creates and updates promotional and marketing materials to help you strengthen and grow your club as well as reach out to potential new clubs.

Kim is one of our Administrative Assistants and is likely the first person you will talk to if you call us. At her position at the front desk, Kim answers phones and emails, and assists in filling supply orders. She is also the point of contact if you need to get in touch with your Director of Counselor Education or your congressman. In addition, Kim proofreads our materials, and manages our annual Fishing Tournament and Sporting Clay Shoot.
Questions about starting a club? Need info on DCE training? Have an order? Are you a congressman in search of information? Contact Kim!
Becky is our other Administrative Assistant and if Kim doesn’t answer the phone, there’s a good chance that Becky will. She also handles emails and processes orders, and handles accounts receivable for supplies, donations, or events. She manages our database and our club membership information, and proofreads Cadet materials.
