Christian Reformed Minister
Zandstra was ordained as an ordained minister of the Word in the Christian Reformed Church on October 6, 1991 at Midland Park, NJ. He served the following CR churches: Midland Park, NJ, 1991–93; Seymour, Grand Rapids, MI, 1993-2000; Hillside, Cutlerville, MI, 2001-06 (Leave, 2005–06); Interim, Wayland, MI, 2006–13; Wayland, MI, 2013
Zandstra holds a Bachelor's degree from Calvin College, two Master's degrees from Calvin Theological Seminary, a Doctor of Divinity from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, and a second doctorate from the Western Michigan University School of Public Affairs.
In late 2014, it was announced that Zandstra headed up a group that was intending to purchase the Steelcase Pyramid Building for an agreed amount. The group intended to re-purpose the building for educational purposes. It was announced on May 9, 2015 that the agreement fell through. It turned out that Steelcase sold the Pyramid building to a Norman Development LLC who was going to lease the building to Switch. When Switch announced "plans to convert the pyramid and its surrounding property into the nation's largest data center east of the Mississippi River," Zandstra's group filed a lawsuit in Kent County Circuit Court.
