Calvary Church

Lay Leadership

At Calvary, we are deeply committed to the biblical principle of the priesthood of all believers.

We believe that everyone has been diversely gifted by God to meet the needs of the community and share His Grace with everyone. This plays out in our Elder Board’s leadership, and in leadership of all aspects of ministry at Calvary Church by people who call Calvary home.



Every January at our annual all-church meeting, the members of Calvary hear from the senior pastor and ministry staff about the past year, and the plans for the next. At this meeting we prayerfully consider who among us is actively ministering and leading at Calvary, and invite those individuals to serve a 2 year term on our Elder Board.

This diversely gifted body of about a dozen women and men are led by a moderator who works with the senior pastor to set agendas and oversee the activity of various commissions (or committees). Examples of commissions include Body Life, Worship and Building. The Elder Board guides change and growth, oversees the activity of Calvary’s paid staff, and assures the annual budget, approved by the membership, is followed.
