Dan Young

Senior Pastor

Hi!  My name is Dan Young. I came to Calvary in August of 2010 and am having a delightful time. I have found Calvary to be a warm place with friendly people looking to grow in their walk with God and love the people around them. This is what Calvary is all about… We love to study the Bible and apply it to day to day living. We are living out the gift of life that God has given us…

We would love to see you next Sunday.  You can expect to feel the warmth and you can expect to meet people who are down to earth and love to worship God as well as engage with people around them.

Hope to meet you soon…

Dan Loch

Director of Worship

Dan Loch holds a Bachelor of Arts in Music and Master of Divinity degrees from Cairn University. He started leading worship at Calvary in February of 2021. Nothing brings him more joy than hearing God’s children sing as one, unified body.

In addition to leading worship, Dan runs, a site dedicated to glorifying God through songwriting. He also teaches guitar, as well as other instruments, and composition. He and his wife Lindsey love music, hiking, and Lord of the Rings.

Dan’s goal is to equip God’s church with songs that will sustain her through all of life. That through every trial and every joy the church may sing “Because your love is better than life my lips will glorify You” (Psalm 63:3).
