Pastors

Matthew Molesky

Senior Pastor

Prior to becoming a pastor, Matthew worked in the corporate world for twelve years, mainly in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He spent his first few years of full time ministry at Bethlehem Baptist Church, and then helping launch a church plant and training institute for church planters in Orlando. His life’s passion is to make more and maturing disciples of Jesus Christ, and he’s been involved doing that with the church family at Calvary since 2007. Matthew absolutely loves the Bible, preaching Jesus from all the Scriptures, and serving the people of Calvary and the St. Cloud metropolitan area. He also enjoys reading, running, biking, hanging out with friends over a good meal, and watching the occasional movie. Matthew and his wife, Susan, live in St. Cloud and have four children.

Steve Eckert

Executive Pastor

Steve came to Calvary with a strong desire to be a part of a leadership team and church that saw the value of servant-leadership in the context of a church that is growing by adding “more and maturing disciples.” Steve believes the church needs to be a place where the gospel is heard without hesitation and the proclamation of God’s Word is paramount for all who have “ears to hear”. Steve and his wife Lori have three grown children; Allison, Marcus and Logan.

Josh Johnson

Student Pastor

Josh grew up attending Calvary. When he began volunteering with the youth he never thought that God would call him into full-time ministry.  Josh considers it an incredible privilege to watch God work in the lives of the students at Calvary. After going through rough years in high school, he wants to make sure that students feel that they can put their trust in the promises of Jesus Christ, and that they can be part of a community that loves and encourages them. Josh enjoys golfing and camping in the summer and pond hockey in the winter; he loves spending time with friends and watching a good movie. When he gets the chance he likes to play piano and guitar. Josh and his wife Rachel both enjoy working along side each other in student ministry.

Jon Oettel

Family Pastor

Jon heard about who Jesus Christ was as a young boy and accepted his sweet and gracious gift.  It is at Calvary and with help from its ministry staff that he grew to love God and gained a passion for working with children. Jon’s passion is to come alongside families, work with children and make more and maturing disciples of Jesus Christ. He prays that the Family Ministry at Calvary will be God-Centered and every event will reflect Jesus' love for children. Jon and his wife Lacey have two children; Ahna and Josiah.

Matt Faulkner

Worship Pastor

Over the course of the last 10 years, Matt has served in full-time ministry at three different churches in various capacities. Since high school, he felt God’s call in his life to pastor in the local church. God has gifted him in the areas of music, leadership, organization and administration. His desire has always been to utilize those gifts to the fullest for God’s glory. Matt's greatest desire is to see people come to know Jesus. Matt and his wife Cathy have two children, Sydney and Oliver and a golden-doodle named Bailey.

Eric Lonergan

Director of Campus Outreach

While attending the U of MN Twin Cities, Eric got involved with Campus Outreach. God used the people in Campus Outreach to transform his understanding of what day-to-day ministry looked like. As his understanding grew, he became more convinced he wanted to continue to share Christ with college students who were asking foundational questions about their lives. Eric and his wife Holly have two children, Evelyn and Liberty. They enjoy having others intersect their lives within their home. The longer they walk with the Lord the better they understand why Jesus came for us as sinners rather than as people who "have it together." As they grow in seeing God's incredible love for them (incredibly broken people) they hope to extend that love to others.
