Calvary's Church Council

SPECIAL NOTICE: Senior Pastor Call Committee Nominations
Calvary’s Church Council is now seeking nominees for the Senior Pastor Call Committee. This committee must consist of at least 11 members. We are looking for spiritually mature Christ-followers who are willing to prayerfully discern God’s leading and unite in the effort to find a senior pastor who will embrace the urgency and importance of our mission.

After your prayerful consideration, if you would like to recommend someone or if you would like to submit your own name, please complete the form available at Calvary’s Information Center by Monday, May 1. You may also use the online form below to submit recommendations by the same date. Please be aware that serving on the committee may require a significant commitment for an extended period of time.

In accordance with Calvary's Constitution, the congregation must approve members to serve on the Senior Pastor Call Committee based on nominations presented by the Church Council. The council will present the final list of nominees at a special congregational meeting projected to be scheduled in early May 2017.
