Joel Weck - Lead Pastor

Hi! I'm Joel. Our family has been at Calvary since September 2018. My wife, Stephanie and I have been married for 15 years. We have two children. Our son, Eli, loves soccer, basketball, Legos, electronics, Star Wars, and anything with super heroes. Our younger daughter, Abby, loves soccer, dance, art, shopping, Legos, and really any kind of colorful stuffed animal. Stephanie and I love to play board games, spend time outside, eat sushi, try new places to eat, and go for family day trips! We have a black and white cat named Dash. We also have a Siberian Husky named Leia; she's cute, cuddly, and tends to get into lots of trouble!
