What do you do at Calvary?

I help develop our staff team, start practical steps to furthering our vision and participate as a member of the Teaching Team in our worship services.


How did you become a follower of Jesus?

I was at a summer day camp led by my 4th Grade Teacher, Rick Lenger. I was raised in a Christian family but I remember specifically being asked to pray and receive the gift of salvation from Jesus at this camp. I responded then and my life has never been the same!
