The VanDyke family at home in Hudsonville, Michigan

Hi, I’m Jackie! I am an eternally-grateful follower of Jesus, and I’m passionate about God’s Word because it has been so transformational in my life. I serve as the Director of Women’s Ministry at Chapel Pointe Church in Hudsonville, Michigan, and I started writing Bible studies in 2015. I learned a great deal personally as I prepared to teach others, and found that I enjoyed writing! When I was asked to make the Bible studies available to others, I decided to launch Hundredfold. I’m praying these studies will help you delve into this book which is active, alive, and life-changing. More than that, I pray these studies will propel you forward in your relationship with your Creator. 

Looking back on God’s preparation of me for ministry, I’m thankful for many people who poured into me throughout my life, starting with my parents, who led me to know and love Christ. Sunday school teachers, special babysitters, quiz team and youth leaders, pastors and professors all played a role. My years at Taylor University (BA) and then Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (MA, Counseling Psychology) drove me deeper into my faith. Bible Study Fellowship was instrumental in training me to extract truths from Scripture and teach it carefully. I truly cannot imagine where I would be today without the hope, wisdom, guidance, sweet encouragement, conviction, and practical instruction I receive from God’s Word. 

My husband, John, is the love of my life, a source of unceasing support, as well as a role model of a man who lives out God’s Word in the way he leads and loves. My young adult children—Emily (and husband Jon), Megan, and David are some of God’s greatest blessings; they keep me laughing and trying to stay young! Our family loves outdoor activities, holidays, meals together, hanging out with friends, and pretty much anything near water.
