Chris Cassis

Lead Pastor

Chris grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and started following Jesus Christ in his freshman year of college in Miami, Florida. During this time he developed a desire to see those who are lost, broken, and hurting restored through a relationship with God. Chris discovered that his dramatic conversion and testimony helped him connect with people who have strayed far from God. He acted on this call by serving as a youth pastor while attending Trinity International University. After Chris earned his bachelor’s degree in Christian ministries, he continued his education at Calvin Theological Seminary, where he earned a master’s of divinity degree.

Chris and Vivy have been married since 2001, and they have four children together. Their gifts distinctively complement each other. While Chris is the visionary who creates and strategizes new ideas, Vivy is the administrator who organizes the details and initiates implementation.

In 2005, while Chris was attending Calvin Seminary, he and Vivy were recruited to Calvin Church in Holland, Michigan to create, design, and facilitate a youth program that would attract families from the community. This program resulted in new families attending and joining the church. Shortly after their first year of ministry at Calvin, the senior pastor became ill and had to vacate his position. Chris stepped into the pulpit to discover that he has a passion for teaching and preaching the Bible. Within a few months and a search process later, Chris was called to become the next senior pastor.

Under the leadership and influence of Pastor Chris, the church has grown in weekly attendance, professions of faith, baptisms of new believers, and in ministerial staff positions. Calvin has gained a new reputation within its community and is now being looked to as the missional model in the area. Chris is currently coaching multiple churches in Holland and is a member of the Mission Focus Team and Ministry Team within Classis Holland.

Chris and Vivy believe they are called to a densely populated city to make an impact in the culture around them. At the same time, they have observed that the church’s voice is nearly absent within the South Broward area.

Chris and Vivy are felt a deep conviction and were called to plant a church in the city of Pembroke Pines. They also believe God has gifted and equipped them for this ministry over the past ten years and look forward to being representatives of Jesus Christ in this new endeavor.

Viviana Cassis

Events and Outreach Coordinator

Vivy has been married to Pastor Chris since 2001, and they have four children together. Their gifts distinctively complement each other. While Chris is the visionary who creates and strategizes new ideas, Vivy is the administrator who organizes the details and initiates implementation. Vivy became the head leader of a girls’ program called “GEMS”, which doubled in size within two years as it drew unchurched kids from the community. Vivy expanded the program by training, mentoring, and recruiting leaders and volunteers. Vivy also directed an intense outreach-focused Vacation Bible School program each year and enjoyed singing in the praise team on Sunday mornings. She has a heart for multicultural worship, racial reconciliation, and was a part of the Holland Classis Diversity Team. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in business administration from Cornerstone University and was the administrative assistant to the director of Faith Alive Christian Resources for over eight years. Viviana has adventured into a new role of being a stay at home mom while she assists her husband in the task of planting The Source Church.

Duane grew up in western Michigan. He met his wife, Cindy, in high school and married in 1982. They have two grown children: Jason, who is currently in his third year at Calvin Theological Seminary in Grand Rapids, Michigan; and Cassie, who is a senior at Kuyper College, also in Grand Rapids, and is majoring in music and worship.

He then worked at Davenport University in Grand Rapids, Michigan, for fourteen years as Vice-president of Risk Management.

During those years Duane completed a master’s degree and a doctorate in public administration. In 2008, Duane responded to a call he felt for several years to pursue ministry. He received training through the Leadership Development Network in the Christian Reformed Church and was ordained as a commissioned pastor in January of 2011. In September of 2012 he received and accepted a call as a part-time interim pastor of the Lao Christian Reformed Church in Holland, Michigan.

Early in 2013, he and Cindy sensed that God had been preparing them for something and felt the call to be part of a multicultural church plant in the greater Miami area. They followed God’s leading step by step as he opened doors and prepared the way for this transition. They are eager to use their gifts to reach out to a community that needs to know Jesus.
