Our Staff // Calvary Chapel Living Hope

Serving The Church, Loving The Lost.

At Living Hope, our staff is dedicated to serving the needs of the body of Christ, while also caring for and pursuing the lost. We come from diverse backgrounds, cultures, life experiences, and professions. But what unifies us is our desire to see Jesus high and lifted up as His word goes out with grace and truth. We serve the community locally and personally, and the world passionately and faithfully. Through prayer, personal and close relationships, and in fidelity to the word of God, our desire is to see everyone, including our staff, grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus.
