Wendy Gritter

Board Member

Wendy VanderWal Gritter has served as Executive Director of Generous Space Ministries since 2002. She grew up in the Christian Reformed Church and has served that denomination extensively, including as a board member of Calvin Seminary and most recently as a member of the Study Committee addressing Same-Sex Marriage. Wendy completed her M.Div. at Tyndale Seminary and her D.Min. at Knox College, Toronto School of Theology.

Wendy attended her first Annual Conference in 2007 and credits that experience as sowing significant seeds for the development of the posture of generous space. She is the author of, “Generous Spaciousness: Responding to Gay Christians in the Church.” Wendy lives in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, is married and proud mom of 3 young adults and 3 puppies named Pippin, Mocha, and Lulu.

I am grateful for the way the new name encompasses the priorities of the community it will represent. Change can be hard to get used to but I am looking forward to the ways that Q Christian Fellowship will welcome a new season of intentional diversity, unashamed Christian identity, and deep connection in community. Q Christian Fellowship is poised to respond to the needs of LGBTQ+ Christians and to equip the church today and into the future.
