Senior Adults Pastoral Care Associate
Senior adults are an important and vital part of our community at Calvary, and we want to ensure that our senior adults feel cared for! The person in this position will do just that—plan social events, connect with those in Life Groups, visit people in the hospital or in care facilities, and work with the Care Pastor to plan funerals when we lose one of our valued members of the church. If you have a heart for serving with seniors, check out the full job description in the link below, and then please send your cover letter and resume HERE.
We’re looking for that person who doesn’t mind hard work and finds joy in keeping things clean and orderly. Our facilities crew do a wide variety of tasks including setting up tables and chairs, vacuuming rooms, and cleaning restrooms. This is a great job for those who like to work independently and be on the move! (Like college students who need a really flexible job to work around a class schedule…) If this sounds like you, contact Bruce McClay. for a complete job description.
Welcome New Staff!
ASK (After School Kids) Associate
Justin Becher was born and raised at Calvary Church, as his parents Christy (Children’s Ministry Pastor) and Cory Becher have been long-time members. Aside from loving this church, he also loves Davanni’s where he’s been slinging pizza pies since 2015. And he still likes pizza! Can you believe it? He earned his A.S. in Engineering from Century College, but now he’s moving on to bigger and better things—he just started classes at the U of M (for Mechanical Engineering) and moved out of Mom and Dad’s pad into his own crib. That’s J.B. lingo, BTW…
For fun, he plays bass with the Contemporary Worship Arts teams at both campuses, and likes to sample pastries from all around the Twin Cities. Favorite so far? He’s a big Glam Doll donuts guy, and the orange, ginger, and cinnamon glazed “misfit” is his go-to for a sugar fix. He’s also a rabid gamer and can spend hours playing Mario Kart or Skyrim. His hobbies have made him a natural fit as a Jr. High leader, and he’ll be starting his third year of volunteering with Fusion this fall. (He’s pictured here with his group of Grade 7-9 guys.) Now he’ll also be using his passion for working with kids and students as the newest ASK Associate. We’re excited to welcome Justin to the Calvary team and blessed to have him!
Infant & Toddler Director—Roseville Campus
We’re thrilled to have Annie Hoglund joining our Kids Ministry team as the new Infant & Toddler Director for Roseville Campus. Annie and her husband Alan live in Spring Lake Park with their kids, Oliver (4) and Sadie(2). Annie has been volunteering with kids in Support Ministry for the past several years, putting her degree in Special Education from St. Cloud State University to use. Calvary Church is very familiar to her, as she’s attended with her parents Trent and Robin Walden since she was a little girl.
For fun, Annie likes to crochet, specifically dolls. And even more specifically, Disney princesses dolls! She also enjoys reading—for her own pleasure, or to entertain her kids who have inherited their mother’s love for books. As a new homeowner, pulling weeds has become a hobby out of necessity. (But if you’ve gotta do it, why not enjoy it, right?) Annie’s first Sunday will be August 18, so be sure to welcome her warmly!
Jr. High Associate Director—White Bear Campus
Emma Larson was Chicago born, but Minnesota raised (Chaska), yet she’s an avid Packer’s fan, so go figure! She has a twin sister, and an older brother, and a succulent named Frank. Emma comes to us fresh off internships at Westwood Community Church and Richfield-area Young Life. She’s already earned a B.S. in Youth & Emerging Adult Studies and Bible from University of Northwestern-St. Paul, and now she’s pursuing an M.A. in Ministry Leadership from UNWSP as well.
For fun she likes to knit, read, cook, play guitar, and go to coffee shops with friends. Emma also enjoys going on missions trips! She first realized she had a heart for missions after going on a YouthWorks trip when she was in 8th grade. In March, she went on her first international missions trip with a team of Americans who were teaching woodworking to Haitian teens. We’re excited that God has led Emma to Calvary to help lead our teens!
McKenzie Van Loh
Sr. High Associate Director—White Bear Campus
McKenzie has been at Calvary Church since she was 5 years old, and started attending Roseville Campus with her parents, Natasha and Dan Van Loh. (They all now attend White Bear Campus.) She grew up in student ministries here, and has enjoyed it so much she never took a break! Immediately after graduating from high school, she started volunteering with Fusion, and has stayed with the same group of girls as they traveled through Fusion (Grades 7-9), and they have all now moved on to Summit (Grades 10-12) together.
McKenzie began in the role of Interim Sr. High Associate Director on April 1. On September 1, she will drop the interim portion of her title and become our new Sr. High Associate Director for White Bear Campus students. Since this is a part-time role, she is also working as a para at Centennial Middle School.
Aside from spending time with students, she loves running (she’s training for the Twin Cities Marathon on October 6, 2019 and will run to raise money for World Vision), writing (she has a blog called tentandtemple.com), and spending time with boyfriend Ethan Stromquist, who also attends Calvary. Thanks for sticking around Calvary and blessing us with your gifts, McKenzie!
