*Pastor Joe and the elders of Calvary San Juan are monitoring the current state of our community and are prayerfully seeking ways to best serve our church body as well as our community. Please look on our website and social media accounts to see what changes are being made here at Calvary.

Joe Gamez is our lead pastor.  He's been married to Ana for over 18 years.  Together they have seven children to the Glory of God!  Joe got saved in 1996 at an AMWAY convention in Houston, Texas.  That soapy career lasted less than a year but he continued to grow in his relationship with God.  The Lord eventually led him to Calvary Chapel San Antonio, the simple yet powerful verse by verse teaching is what inspired him to attend  Calvary Chapel Bible College where he also met his future wife.  After bible college he went back to San Antonio and served the Lord there until his calling to pastor on the beautiful San Juan Islands in 2007.

Karl Thomas is our Junior High Pastor for "raised jr high".   He has been working with island youth for well over 10 years.  The jr high group meets every Thursday evening at 7:00PM and on Sundays during second service.  He is also part of our Tuesday morning prayer group, if you need prayer or have a prayer request shoot him an email.  Karl also heads up our M.A.C.'s (Men at Calvary)breakfast the third saturday of every month.      

Greg Moses is our Children's ministry Pastor.  He serves alongside Pastor Joe in many of the day to day operations of the fellowship and he also is the lead overseer of our life groups. Him and his wife, Vic Moses, are very involved in our church body and community. He basically loves everyone and is definitely someone to go to for prayer and or encouragement.  If you are new to the fellowship and want to serve or be involved more,  he's a good guy to talk to.

Doug Guard is one of our church elders. Doug has been deeply involved in our church body and community in many different ways. He oversees a weekly life group, with his wife Lori Guard, on Sunday evenings. Doug also leads a Wednesday morning small group for those that struggle, or have struggled, with substance abuse. He is definitely someone to reach out to for prayer, or if you are interested in joining his Wednesday morning small group don't hesitate to shoot him an email.

Bryan Leighton is the lead overseer of the worship team here at Calvary San Juan, as well as a part of our teaching team and stepping in to teach when needed on Sunday mornings. Bryan and his wife both have lived on San Juan Island for the majority of their lives and are very involved in our church body and especially in the community. If you need prayer or encouragement or if you have an interest in worship and a desire to serve in that way, Bryan is definitely the guy to go to. 

Abbie Vital is our church admin and social media manager. She handles a lot of the day to day tasks such as running our social media pages, uploading sermons to our website and other platforms, editing the website, and cleaning the church. Abbie and her husband both also serve at our high school youth group and are invested in the lives of the kids here. If you have any questions about serving here at the church (coffee ministry, cooking for our youth group, cleaning, etc.), or about our high school youth group, or regarding our social media and the website feel free to email her! 

Jeanne Herko is our church bookkeeper and the one who helps keep all the finances straight and organized here at Calvary San Juan. She has been faithfully serving here with her husband Peter Herko for a long time, the both of them picking up slack when needed, as well as serving on the worship team, and being involved in women's and men's discipleship here. Jeanne specifically leads a ladies prayer group every Tuesday morning at 9 am. If you're interested in joining the prayer group, or you just need some prayer, contact Jeanne for sure!
