PELLA — The Pella Christian Grade School and Pella Christian High School Boards announced Friday that Dan Zylstra will lead as Head of Schools at Pella Christian Schools beginning the 2022-23 school year.

Zylstra will begin the Head of Schools role on July 1, 2022. He is currently the Superintendent at West Central Schools in Francesville, Indiana. He attended Reformed Christian schools from kindergarten to 12th grade near Chicago, majored in music education at Dordt University and has served as an educator in both Christian and public school settings.

When asked about his faith he said, “My Reformed faith has helped me to see the picture of sin and redemption on a larger scale and to use my gifts and position in life to bring God’s redemption and restoration to a broken world around me.”

Dan and his wife, Lisa, have four children, Emily, Caroline, Paul, and Joe. When not at school, Dan can be found arranging and performing music with his family. He also enjoys reading, playing tennis and cheering on the Chicago White Sox.

Zylstra’s new email address is zylstrad@pceagles.org.
