    About This Organization

    The Ridge began just over 20 years ago in the living room of our current lead pastor, Mike Van Rees. While much has changed over the last two decades, the heart of The Ridge remains much the same. We are passionate about the birth, growth and expression of relationship with God–providing various opportunities for people to grow in their faith, connect with others, and serve the broader community. While The Ridge is known in Ankeny community and beyond for their heart to serve,they have a key focus to serving single moms and special needs adults.

    The church is a part of the Reformed Church of America ( and reflects a theology aligned with the Apostle’s Creed, with a practical faith as mirrored in the heart of the early church. The Ridge is a place where questions are welcomed, opinions are respected but the gospel is centered.
