The Rev. Dr. Mary S. Hulst has served as college chaplain since 2009. She spent eight years serving as the senior pastor at Eastern Avenue Christian Reformed Church in Grand Rapids, Mich., before leaving to pursue a Ph.D. in communication ethics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. After earning her degree, Hulst taught for one year in the Calvin College Communications Arts and Sciences Department and then for two years at Calvin Theological Seminary as assistant professor of preaching. Now, she preaches weekly on Sunday evenings at the Calvin College LOFT service for students, integrating her love for Scripture and her love for college students. 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, 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 (IVP Praxis) was released in 2016.
