CALEB & SUZANNAH KOORNNEEF

Caleb Koornneef met his wife, Suzannah (Turner), at Coral Ridge in 2015 as an intern. They were married at Coral Ridge in 2018 and have been directing Gangway Student Ministry, 6th-12th grade, since July 2017. Caleb currently attends Knox Theological Seminary and Suzannah dances with PLGD Co. while also teaching dance at studios throughout South Florida.
