Our 2021 Residents


Fr. Daniel Pinell is the second resident to come to Grace. He and his family moved all the way from Oakland, California to be apart of the residency program. Daniel and his growing family have been a wonderful addition to our church!  Daniel came to us in January of 2020 and was ordained to the Sacred Order of Deacons and later to the Priesthood during his short time here at Grace. Daniel has found that the emphasis on preaching during his residency has been helpful to him to grow and to learn more about being a priest in the Episcopal Church.


Fr. Frans van Santen is the third resident to come to Grace. Frans was originally from New Amsterdam. Frans and his wife Erin were members of the Anglican Church in Amsterdam and started a discernment process for the priesthood with the Church of England. In the midst of this process, they decided to move their family to Florida and transfer to the Episcopal Church, where he applied for our residency program. Frans is currently ordained to the Sacred Order of Deacons and will soon be ordained to the Priesthood. Frans is passionate about the beautiful message of the gospel and desires for everyone to know and experience God’s love, please welcome Frans and his family to the Grace Church family!
