Keynote Speaker

Mary Hulst

Dr. Mary Hulst

Mary Hulst has served since 2009 as University Pastor of Calvin University. Mary spent eight years serving as the senior pastor at Eastern Avenue Christian Reformed Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan, before leaving to pursue a PhD in communication ethics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. After earning her degree, Dr. Hulst taught for one year in the Communication Arts and Sciences Department at Calvin College and then for two years at Calvin Theological Seminary as Assistant Professor of Preaching before coming to Calvin University.

Mary preaches weekly on Sunday evenings at Calvin for students, integrating her love for scripture and her love for college students. The sermons she preaches at Calvin can be found by searching for the “Calvin College LOFT” podcast or on Calvin University's Campus Ministry website. Known as “Pastor Mary” on campus, she loves to meet with any student to talk about life, faith, or anything else. When her schedule allows, Dr. Hulst also lectures around the country on preaching, teaches workshops for preachers, and consults with churches and search committees on how to listen to sermons. Her book A Little Handbook for Preachers was released in 2016.

A native of Holland, Michigan, Mary loves the outdoors, hiking, kayaking, and every now and then she takes up running again. Mary is married to Drew Kromminga and lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
