Things Rebecca likes:  Camping, Reading, Winter, Downhill Skiing, Starbucks coffee, Scrib's pizza, Bonfires and spending time with family.

What Rebecca loves most about Muskegon: Growing up in Muskegon, I took advantage of all that Muskegon has to offer. It wasn't until I moved out of state for a few years that I learned to appreciate all that the area has to offer. By far, my favorite thing about Muskegon is the beaches, sand dunes and lakes. I love that we get to experience the four seasons of weather and love all the local restaurants and businesses that Muskegon offers that you don't find in other areas. 



In 2013 Calvary made the transition to elder leadership. The elders are a group of men, selected by the congregation, who love Calvary and who are responsible for the leadership and oversight of this local body.

Our elders meet twice a month to study, pray and cast vision for the church. On top of leading a number of the important teams and meeting with and praying for our people, they also partner with the staff, deacons and our amazing volunteers to make ministry happen at Calvary.

You can always reach the elders by email or by connecting with them in person:
