Willem (Wilhelm) Wynands (Wynantz), b. 28 March 1630, at Altona, d. there 21 December 1658, a son of Pieter Wynands and Perina Noe, was a preacher of the Hamburg-Altona church from 17 June 1655, until his death three years later. His sermons were published after his death, entitled LVIIJ Stichtelycke Predicatien (Amsterdam, 1660). Of these sermons, 57 were composed by Wynands, and one by Barend Roelofsz, also a preacher of Hamburg, and written from memory by Wynands.  This book of sermons was very popular among the more conservative Mennonites; in the Balk congregation it was used until the early 19th century. According to a letter of 1773, the Mennonites in America liked Wynands' sermons. David Zug translated a number of them into German, published as Predigten über höchst wichtige Gegenstande des Christenthums, with a tract by Menno Simons (Lancaster 1830; re­prints Lancaster 1871, Scottdale 1926). (See also Wijnands.)
