Hilmer Jagersma was ordained to pastoral ministry in October of 2016 and joined Bill DeJong as the second pastor on staff at Blessings.
Hilmer has been part of Blessings since it’s launch in 2015 and was thankful for the opportunity to take up his first pastoral charge in his home church. He is passionate about preaching, teaching, and discipling others in the truth of God’s Word.
Hilmer is a husband to Meagan and a father to three beautiful children. The Jagersmas have been proud to call Hamilton home since 2012. Prior to that they lived in Chilliwack, BC where Hilmer spent several years working as a sales representative in the construction industry.
Since the move to Hamilton, Hilmer has been excited to see the city transformed through the power of Jesus Christ. He enjoys building relationships and working alongside other individuals, churches and ministries throughout the Hamilton area. He’s served as a volunteer at the Hamilton-Wentworth Detention Center - mentoring, teaching and encouraging inmates - and has also been involved with organizations like City Kidz. In his spare time Hilmer enjoys playing hockey, watching the Blue Jays, and going on summer adventures with his family.
