LEADERSHIP TEAM

  • JAY MCALISTER

    LEAD PASTOR

    My family and I moved to Williams Lake in February 2015 to pastor Calvary Church.  Since being here we have met some incredible people and we are enjoying experiencing a little bit of life in the Cariboo.  I am married to Lynette and we have three amazing children - Jordyn, Kyler and Austin.  I have been pastoring since 1993 in various locations including Vancouver Island, Alberta, and the Fraser Valley.  I received my pastoral education in Abbotsford and Vancouver.  I enjoy being outside, whether fishing, biking, camping or hiking and I love spending time with my family.  I am excited about what God has in store for Calvary Church.

  • CALEB GAIT

    NEXT GEN PASTOR

    My beautiful wife, Amy, and I, along with our 3 sons, have been here since October 2018. Simply said: we love it here! We appreciate this community for how welcoming and caring they've been and for the fact that no one's a stranger! I graduated from Summit Pacific College in 2016 with a B.A. in Religion, Majoring in Pastoral Theology and boy am I thankful for the education I got then for the incredible opportunities I have now as I do my best to Pastor the Next Generation and their families. I love coffee, board games, spending time with family and friends, as well as sports like soccer, basketball, squash and golf! I'm excited for what God is up to in this church and community!
