Staff & Elders
Chuck grew up in the area attending Calvary. He married the love of his life, Karen, right out of high school and has three adult children and nine amazing grandchildren. After several years in business, God called him to minister in the church of his youth. He loves to read, study, and learn. He is learning to paint with watercolors, and he tries to play golf, although he mostly likes that it gets him outside. His greatest love is Jesus, and he loves to see others come to love Jesus as well.
Music and Production Director
Addison and his wife Beth are newlyweds and originally from the South. When Addison isn’t jamming out to blues music or disc golfing, you can find him making dad jokes way before he should. Addison loves to share how worship is more than just music and requires constant surrender to the only One worthy of everything we are.
Global Partnership Pastor
My wife and I have lived in the United Arab Emirates and in Central Asia, each time pastoring International English language churches. Before that we planted two EFCA churches in the United States. In between oversea assignments we worked in pre-field training for workers going overseas in Detroit and the large Arab Muslim community in Dearborn, MI. We have been supported partners with CCC since 1987. In 2012 we were invited to come to CCC to provide member care for the church’s various partners. Because of our passion for the Lord’s church, our academic studies, and our varied cross-cultural ministry experiences, we are delighted to use our gifts and experience to walk alongside our world-wide partners as they process life and ministry transitions, joys and struggles.

I live in Lake Geneva. I have 3 grown sons and 3 beautiful daughters in law. I have been blessed with 7 grandchildren who keep me busy and are the joy of my life. I enjoy quilting and walking with my golden doodle Maggie. God has answered a prayer by bringing me to Calvary Church.
Student Ministry Assistant
I’ve attended Calvary since I was born and enjoy being able to give back by serving the student ministries in any way I can! I live outside of Lake Geneva and spent 1 year at a Bible College after high school. I love getting to know the students and experience all the youth events from a different perspective than when I attended them as a student.

I have been married to Debbie for 39 years and we have lived in Lake Geneva for 7 years, attending Calvary for as long. We are blessed with four children, one son, three daughters, three grandkids, and three more to be born within two weeks of each other shortly. (It going to be a wonderful fall for the Mimi & Papa.) Larry Matthew Clinton and Rosella have two children, Landon and Brielle. Ashley Wojcik is married to Chris; they have a son, Carter, and a daughter to arrive shortly. Rachael Westlake is married to Taylor and expecting a daughter in the fall. Victoria Knottnerus is married to Caleb and expecting (no details yet—a surprise in-store for us all in the fall). It has been my honor to serve as an Elder for the past three years at Calvary Community Church. The highest calling on this earth is to be called a Child of a Living King and then serve Him & His Bride, “The Church.” After much prayer I believe God is calling me to another three years to serve at Calvary Community Church.

I became A child of our Lord at 8 years old, as my mother taught myself, my brother and my sister about Jesus and why He loved us. I knew the Lord was prompting me to respond, so I answered Him by receiving His gift of Salvation. From that point on even when I was rebellious, He was and has been more than faithful! I am married to the love of my life Mary Katherine, who went home to be with her Savior May 6th 2020. Next to my Jesus, she was my best friend, and guide in this life. We have 3 adult children, 7 grandchildren, and 1 great grandchild, but only 1 boy ! I have been a member of Calvary for almost 8 years and have loved the opportunity to serve as an Elder, and discipler of men in our community. As I Prayerfully consider another 3 years on the Elder Board, with your approval, I am truly humbled by the opportunity to serve both You and our God in ways that will honor and glorify Him! ( Proverbs 3: 5-6 )

We have been blessed to be a part of the body and ministries at Calvary, including the opportunity to serve as an elder for the last three years. As I prayerfully consider another three years on the elder board, I am humbled by the opportunity to serve God in a way that will honor Him and give Him glory.

I have been married to Julia for 32 years. We have 3 sons and 2 daughters-in-law, Hayden (Alicia), Ross, and Spencer (Abigail). We are from Elkhorn and I have attended Calvary my entire life. When I was a young boy, around 7 years old, I asked Jesus to be my savior in a Sunday School class led by Jim Nelson. As I matured, I realized I needed to form a relationship with my savior Jesus and I rededicated my life to Him as a teenager. Through the years, God has opened many doors for me to be involved in various ministries and has gifted me with His discernment and a deep love for the body of Christ here at Calvary Community Church. It is a very humbling privilege to serve God alongside the pastoral staff and the members here at Calvary as part of the elder team. Please pray with us and for us as we seek His face for wisdom and direction. (Ephesians 6:10-18)

I have been married to Anissa for 27 years. We have two adult children, Alea and Jonas. We have lived in Lake Geneva for 21 years and have been attending Calvary Community Church for 20 years. I am a public school 3rd grade teacher in Lake Geneva. I was extremely blessed to have grown up in a Christian home and received the Lord as my personal Savior at a young age at a church where my parents were singing during a weekend service. My life has never been the same since that defining moment. Eldership is a huge and humbling calling that I do not take lightly. I have served on the Elder board in the past and am excited to again join this godly group of men who have also been called to shepherd the church in prayer, with the leading of God’s Word, and being empowered by the Holy Spirit.

I have been married to Joanne for 49 years. Our children are Eric (46) and Maureen, Bjorn (44) and Trisha, and Jennifer Ayala (36) and her husband Tino. We have nine grandchildren ranging from age four to fifteen. We have lived in Lake Geneva for the past five years after living in the Palatine, Illinois area, where we were members of the Orchard Evangelical Free Church (Arlington Heights EFC) for more than 50 years. We began attending Calvary in 2017 and joined in 2018. I accepted Christ as my personal Savior when I was 8 years old with the help of my Sunday School teacher. I have grown through the Bible’s teachings, challenged by my pastors. Over the years, we have learned to rely on God’s leading in our daily walk with Him. Having served at the Orchard on various boards and committees, I had thought that God was finished with me when we moved here, but serving on the elder board these past three years has been a wonderful opportunity to serve here at Calvary and God continues to tap on my shoulder to serve in other areas of ministry.
