Brian Wolthuis – Priest

Husband to Amy & Father to Sam, Lydia, Sophie, and Noah–the little people in his life who make him laugh every day.

Brian first knew a call to pioneering work in late college as he was meeting his wife and best friend, Amy. He was immersed in the revival season at Hope College in Holland, Michigan and in the Vineyard Movement, where he began to discern a calling to ministry and church planting. After graduating from Hope College with a degree with Art & Philosophy, and marrying his beautiful bride, Brian completed a 2 year pastoral training internship at Lakeshore Vineyard and for 2 additional years pastored the young adults there, living on rice, beans and ramen noodles.  In 1999, he and Amy resigned from their work to explore more simple ways to be the church. This journey would take them to California to learn simple community with a band of Jesus followers under the leadership of Todd Hunter.

Once back in Holland, Michigan Brian & Amy dove into a life of organic & practical ministry and sacrificial hospitality.  Brian became a licensed builder to bring home the bacon, helped start three different businesses with missional intent, planted and pastored a house church for seven years, founded 3-Sixty (a neighbor-led non-profit), and started a family.  The intensity of these years led to burnout and deep reevaluation in 2008-09. Since, he has sought to learn and live a more centered and sustainable life.  This turning taught him how to pray and rest, laugh more, and toward the discovery of his true vocation as an Anglican Priest. Brian was ordained as a Priest in the summer of 2013, while planting All Saints Anglican Church in Holland, Michigan.  He, his wife, and four children continue to happily live in the core city of Holland where they also direct 3sixty, homeschool their kids and still eat rice and beans and, occasionally, ramen noodles.

 

Father Brandon Grimm- Associate Priest

Fr. Brandon was raised a Roman Catholic in the southwest suburbs of Chicago. In high school, he became involved with a Non-Denominational Church in his home town.

While finishing his degree, Brandon had a conversation with a close professor about his love for both
Catholic and Evangelical traditions, but he did not know where he could richly live and express both. At this Professors recommendation, Brandon began attending Immanuel Anglican Church in Chicago.
After graduating in 2013, Brandon moved to Grand Rapids where he became involved in church planting, continued involvement with Urban Ministry, and discovered his passion for healing prayer ministry. Brandon began training and practicing healing prayer during his formation for Ordination. He was ordained to the diaconate in March 2016 and after being ordained to the priesthood in April
2017, Fr. Brandon moved to Holland, MI.

He now serves as our Associate Priest where he is leads All Saint’s Prayer Ministry, as well as being involved in our Family Ministry and neighborhood intern houses.
