Recently, he was named one of the 150 most influential alumni of Valparaiso University in the last 150 years. Pastor Yonker is an avid coffee drinker, lover of storytelling, voracious reader, ardent fan of the Green Bay Packers and is enthralled with Frank Sinatra music and 60’s bubblegum music.

Musician

100 White Flags

100 White Flags officially came together in June of 2006 as members Beth and Jeromy Dorsing, Zac Harder, and Paul Tietjen joined forces to make some music. Both Paul and Beth (Beth Gearhart, Girl With Guitar) have enjoyed successful solo careers, performing nationally, in both concert and weekend youth event venues.
The band started mostly out of Beth’s career as a solo artist featured as “Girl With Guitar”. Both Jeromy and Zac were a part of GWG on an off and on basis. Featuring many songs that have carried over from GWG, 100 White Flags is combining the talents of Beth and Paul as writers to breathe new life into some great songs as well as to add to their lengthy repertoire.  Whether performing original music or leading worship, 100 White Flags has a unique sound that fuses progressive rock with hints of blues and folk influence.

While they all have a passion for music, their heart for ministry has remained at the forefront of their existence.  All 4 members of the band have a background in youth ministry and hope to share their music and the light of Christ with the people they meet along the way.
