After high school, he enrolled at Dordt College in Sioux Center, IA and graduated from there in 1998 with a B.A. degree in Philosophy and was also enrolled in the Pre-Seminary Program. While there, he met Jessica Radsma from St. Catharines, ON Canada. They were married on August 2, 1997.
After graduating from Dordt College, Michael worked in the Admissions Office for seven years as an Admissions Counselor and Associate Director of Admissions. During that time, they made their home both in Sioux Center and Hull, IA, and had two of their children, Zachary (1999) and Bethany (2001).
In 2005, Michael left the college and worked at American State Bank as a loan officer and personal banker until 2008 when he returned to Dordt as their Marketing and Public Relations Coordinator for two years. During that time, their third child, Alex (2009) was born.
In the summer of 2010, Michael enrolled in the Master of Divinity program at Calvin Theological Seminary, and moved with his family to Grand Rapids, MI. He graduated in May 2013 and accepted our call to become our pastor.
The Ten Haken family enjoys music, camping, and water sports together. Jessica enjoys crafting (Michael does not). Rather, he enjoys cooking things on the grill and eating them...
We are so pleased to have Pastor Michael and his family here to do ministry together at Pease Church!
