Pastor of Worship & Ministry
My name is Anthony Bolkema and I have had the privilege of serving as the worship leader and youth director here since July 2010. I lived in South Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin before moving south to Illinois to attend Trinity Christian College where I majored in English and Theology. Between my junior and senior year at Trinity I was blessed to marry my high school sweetheart (and now wife of over twelve years), Kim, who teaches PE at Calvary Academy. We moved to South Holland in early 2009 and we have loved every minute of it here. We have three boys (ages 8, 6 and 2 1/2) who keep us running every day! I earned a Master of Worship Studies degree from the Robert E. Webber Institute of Worship Studies in Jacksonville, FL in October of 2016 and my doctoral thesis was recently approved by the Institute as well! My family and I enjoy spending our free time playing outside, jogging through South Holland, and working on our house.
