My name is Brad Kleinjans. I have been married to my beautiful wife, Alexa, since 2015. We have three wonderful children, Isabella, Wade, and Abel. We have been members of Ottawa since the Spring of 2021. I was born and raised and still live in Hudsonville, Michigan. I enjoy Deer Hunting, Ice Fishing, and Gardening, but I love spending most of my free time with my family. I'm a fourth-generation roofer and have been roofing houses since I was a kid. It has been my full-time job for 17 years, but God has been relentlessly pursuing me for the ministry before I graduated high school. I now know that He has been slowly preparing me for what's ahead. "As the Sr. High Youth Director, I am very excited for God to use me in whatever way He wants to help draw students, leaders, and fellow members into a closer relationship with Himself. I'm honored at the opportunity, but I also know the level of responsibility it entails."
Brad has volunteered at several levels of youth ministry in his life, from preschool to post-high. Brad and Alexa are excited about the adventures ahead with their growing family at home and the rapidly growing family at ORC.
