Meet the Friendly Staff

Owners – Kurt & Kathy Hein

Kurt spent over 20 years in a variety of positions with General Motors throughout the US and Europe. Although he enjoyed a successful career, one of the downsides was moving every 2-4 years. His family moved 8 times in the course of his career and sought to establish permanent roots for his family in his home state of Michigan. After years of research, interviews, and exploration of different opportunities, he came upon Christian Brothers while living in Texas. He and his wife Kathy went through a discovery process and decided Christian Brothers was where they wanted to be, allowing Kurt to follow his passion for automobiles and commitment to faith.

Kurt and Kathy have four children: Nathan, Nicholas, Alyssa, and Addison. They are very happy to be close to family and enjoy spending time at their children's activities. They feel very blessed to finally be “Home.

Community Involvement

Here at Christian Brothers Automotive, we want to ensure our neighbors in Grand Rapids stay safe on the roads year round. Recently, Kurt was asked by the folks at WZZM 13 to give a few pointers on how to prepare your vehicle for winter.

    • Christian Brothers Automotive "The customer service was excellent and the service of my vehicle was superb. I would recommend Christian Brothers to anyone looking for outstanding customer service and vehicle service. Great organization."
    • Christian Brothers Automotive "I found CBA through Google and saw they had great reviews so I decided to give them a try. They are amazing! Not only is the building very clean and professional, but they communicate and give you updates on the status of your car."
    • Christian Brothers Automotive "We were looking for a place to bring a used car to have a pre purchase inspection. Gabriel met us at the desk and was more than helpful. They could not squeeze us in that day as it was close to closing time but we made an appointment for the next day."
