Riley was very involved in Harderwyk’s High Tide Youth  Ministry, and in particular was deeply impacted through his experience at the Genesis Youth Retreat.

The Harderwyk Community, in honor and in memory of  Riley, has established a fund which would provide financial assistance to students (middle school, high school, or college), with limited financial means, who wish to            participate in a mission trip, youth group retreat, conference, or service-focused event sponsored through Harderwyk’s Student Ministries or Missions Programs. 

How can you help support our students?  You and each member of your family are encouraged to provide for this fund by placing $1 a week in one of the small wooden churches you will find located throughout both buildings. If you wish to make a general contribution, please make your check out to Harderwyk Ministries, in memo put Riley Hoeksema Scholarship Fund.

At some point, as our students grow in their journey with their Lord, one might ask, “so tell me more about Riley, and why these types of experiences meant so much to him?”   This provides an amazing opportunity to bless   others through Riley’s testimony and to keep his memory alive, all in the name of Jesus Christ.

The Craft Sale at Harderwyk is a fundraiser for our missions.

June 5, 2018

Harderwyk Ministries will embark upon an across campus building project this month.

It is with great anticipation that we look forward to the building project here on the Harderwyk Campus.   This project has been in the planning for some time and will begin this June and continue through the end of the year.  As with each great adventure and exciting change there are ripple effects.  Due to the  full campus project, every large area in both buildings will be affected and will be unavailable as usable space.  The 2018 Craft Sale has been postponed until 2019.  This new building project will allow more room to grow our Mission Fundraiser Craft Sale in 2019.

Here is what you need to know:
