  • 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. 


  • Brad Lindhout

    Next Generations Pastor

    Brad was brought on staff at end of May 2022 along with his wife Daphne. I am originally from Chilliwack BC and went to Bible College at Summit Pacific College in Abbotsford. I have spent many years volunteering in various Youth Ministries and I have a heart to see student's lives changed when they invite Jesus into it. I am a bit of a Bible-nerd, I love the scriptures and being able to communicate them to people. I enjoy good food, golfing and fishing (all though I am not very good at the last two). I believe God has a plan for the city of Williams Lake and I am excited to be able to see it unfold.


  • Daphne Lindhout

    Children's Pastor

    I moved to Williams Lake with my husband, Brad, in May 2022. Though originally from Ontario, I moved to BC to attend Summit Pacific College. I've been volunteering and working with various kids ministries for 11 years. In my spare time, I like to knit and bake goodies. I'm excited to see what God has in store for Williams Lake!

    I have lived in Williams Lake and have attended Calvary Church for over 25 years. I graduated with a Bachelor of Religious Education from Summit Pacific College. I've been married for 18 years and have one son. I enjoy reading and crocheting. I'm passionate about children's ministry and missions and call me crazy, but I enjoy accounting work.
