We see a church community gathering onsite and online, growing in groups and ministering the good news to our city in a creative, caring, and credible way. We see a family church that is a multicultural, intergenerational, and young in spirit centre of hope. We see a church where every member can be a minister and every person is welcome. We see a church where Jesus is the center of everything we do.
We see a church where those who invest their hearts, time, families, and finances in the building of the local church can have confidence in church leadership. Leaders who conduct themselves with integrity and respect when making decisions that affect their lives.
We are guided by Pastors. Our pastoral team and ministry directors oversee the day-to-day ministry and operations of the church. The staff pastors serve our church family and are responsible for the development of the spiritual life of the church. The Calvary Church Pastoral Team are: Pastor Steven MacDonald, Pastor Vince McLaren, Pastor Susan MacDonald, Pastor Heather Roman, Pastor Mary Chin, and Pastor Brad Funnell. As well as our Kid's Ministry Director, Tessa Polman.
We are protected by Directors. Our directors are members of our congregation who oversee the finances and direct the provision of the facilities needed by the church. As the Lead Pastor, they also provide my pastoral team and I with wise counsel regarding the major financial commitments of the church. The Calvary Church Board of Directors are: Steven MacDonald (President/ Chairman), James Hansen (Treasurer), Bill Yeung (Secretary), Mathew Joseph, Curt Roman, Daniel Wang, Justin Willie, Augusta Babs-Ishola, and Rachel Peters.
With such a gifted and passionate team of pastors, directors, staff and volunteers, our future is bright. New families and individuals continue becoming a part of our mission to love God and love people while leading them to become fully devoted followers of Christ. His story transformed our lives, and we invite you to become a part of the story He continues to write. The best chapters are still to come!
Loving God. Loving People. Loving Life.
