Willem de Vries New Pastor at Moline CRC


Featured image for “Willem de Vries New Pastor at Moline CRC”

My name is Willem de Vries, new pastor at Moline CRC.

I grew up on a fruit farm in southwestern Ontario, and worked in various careers until I finally answered the Lord’s call to ordained ministry in 2012. I graduated Calvin Theological Seminary  in 2016, and spent 6 fruitful years of ministry in the “banana belt” of southwestern Ontario.

I am married to Jennifer and we’re in our 25th year of wedded bliss! Together, we are raising 5 kids: Kayla (21), Emily (19), Seleah (17), Aidan (15), and Levi (10).

I look forward to meeting/working with many of you for the wider proclamation and acceptance of the good news of salvation found in Christ alone.

Installation Service is planned for September 25 in the 9:30 AM service at Moline CRC.


  1. Welcome to Michigan, Pastor DeVries! We have been praying for your safe arrival. I am the Classis Prayer Coordinator and would love to meet with you some time to introduce myself and see how our Classis prayer ministry can bless your ministry. Jolene DeHeer
