Calvary Link: Welcome


Calvary-Follow

Please join me in welcoming Pastor Steve Buchelt to our team at Calvary. The staff is enjoying getting to know him better and dreaming about how we can partner together for the gospel. Pastor Steve comes to us with 35+ years of pastoral and ministry experience, most recently as a chaplain with Unity Hospice. I met Steve and his wife Diane a few years ago and was immediately impressed with their warmth and genuine love for people.

Steve will be providing pastoral care as well as vision for our Life Change Center. He will not be doing all the care at Calvary or single-handedly running the Life Change Center, but rather much of his work will be focused on equipping and empowering God's people to provide care for our growing church community. We also want our Life Change Center to be a place that helps people in our church and in the larger community with their hurts, habits and hang-ups. That's the vision!

If you see Steve on Sunday, be sure to welcome him. He and Diane have been part of our church family for almost 4 years, and Steve was part of the teaching team for God Songs last summer so his face might already be familiar to you. If you need to contact Steve you may do so at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Our staff team is excited to have him join us, and we can’t wait to see what God will do through our church. And don't forget, your generosity is making it possible for us to expand our team so we can see more lives changed forever!

See you Sunday!
