Bekins In The Community: Valuable Life Lessons

Teaching Valuable Life Lessons

Our employees like to help people. As a service company, we consider it a valuable trait to our team and our customers. We’re proud to say one of our employees uses his degree in Pastoral Ministry and Leadership to teach people valuable life lessons that address our deepest needs.

Jason Hunsicker assists customers as a Service Administrator for Bekins. Before he worked for us, Jason pastored a small church in the Upper Peninsula. Now that he lives in West Michigan, he continues to use his knowledge and experience as a volunteer teacher and Young Adults Ministry Leader at the Lakeshore Baptist church in Grand Haven.


The church offers a variety of classes after their service each Sunday. Jason has taught multiple age groups and is looking forward to teaching a class of 10-year-old children.

“There is the preaching time then there is the teaching time,” Jason says. “The classes are a little more focused, a little more intimate. There is that interaction where they can ask questions and we can discuss it together.”

Jason at times teaches students about the historical context of different biblical books. However, he most enjoys relating passages to our current lives.

“Every time I get to sit down and study a text I love it,” Jason says. “Just when I think about how lives can change through this, and just how we can live differently based on what we read and what we learn, I think that’s just awesome.”

built-in Jenn-Air appliances

Thoughtfully designed and executed by the visionaries at Mike Schaap Builders and Benchmark Design Studio, this remarkable residence takes its cues from nature and masterfully balances mountain home sentiments with contemporary sensibilities. The result is a fresh and organic design that feels perfectly at ease in its Midwestern foundation. This home also features built-in Jenn-Air appliances from Bekins. As Whirlpool’s luxury brand, the company’s headquarters are not just in the Midwest but right here in West Michigan.


While the kitchen displays the major built-in Jenn-Air appliances, the pantry features unique appliances as well. The stylish Jenn-Air ice machine provides a generous, continuous and conveniently accessible supply of clear, fresh ice. Clear ice does not contain any of the impurities of the cloudy ice you typically get from your freezer. Perfect for entertaining, the frost-free ice machine stores 25 pounds of ice and creates up to 50 pounds in 24 hours. So if you host a party, it would be difficult to run out of ice.

The under counter refrigerator includes four temperature presets to accommodate the various beverages, ingredients or hours’devours you may store. Plus, the UV-resistant thermal glass door blocks sun, heat and damage from ultraviolet rays to keep the ideal temperature.
