When not fulfilling our roles at Calvary we love spending time outdoors. Our vacations consist of packing up the car with our trusty tent, trusty hiking boots and trail mix (oh yeah, the kids too), and finding a picturesque place to call home for a few days close to excellent mountainous hiking trails. I’m an early to bed, early to rise kind of guy and you can find me on any given day with my head in a good book with a big ‘ol cup of coffee by my side.
Calvary is a church our family is so proud to call our home because truth lives here; from the top of our leadership team down we share the full true Gospel unashamedly.
