Student Pastor

Josh Johnson

Josh grew up attending Calvary. When he began volunteering with the youth group 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 in the summer and pond hockey in the winter; he loves spending time with family and friends watching a good movie. Josh and his wife Rachel both enjoy working along side each other in student ministry. They have two daughters, Tatum and Payton, a son, Cooper, and an overly hyper husky, Everest.

Kids Coordinator

Michelle Hilden

Michelle and her family have been attending Calvary for over 20 years. She has been involved in Calvary Kids since the beginning, and she decided to accept the role as Calvary Kids Coordinator in 2014. Michelle loves to see the awe in children’s eyes as they hear stories about Jesus.

To see her own children now teaching and leading worship in Sunday School, Kids Club, and VBS is a blessing to her. Michelle lives in St. Cloud with her husband Jeremy. Michelle loves getting together with family and friends. She loves to read and enjoys scrapbooking. Michelle enjoys seeing her adult children helping in the different ministries at Calvary.

Director of Worship

Christy Freeman

Growing up in a Christ-centered and musical home, Christy’s love of music began at a young age. She was classically trained in violin, piano, and voice, and was in ensembles throughout college. She stepped into the worship scene in college, and after moving to Central MN for children’s ministry, God provided open doors for music ministry to unfold. The Lord grew her desire for ushering others into his presence, and feels it is one of the most awesome, overwhelming privileges in life!

Christy came to Calvary to serve as an interim in 2014, fell in love with the Calvary family, and has been here ever since! In addition to leading worship at Calvary, Christy also serves as the elementary music teacher at Calvary Classical Academy. Her loves include creating music, time with friends and family, and being at the lake. She married her high school sweetheart, Chris, and they have three children: Caden, Clara, and Corin.

Director of operations

Laurie Bovitz

Laurie grew up on the Iron Range in Mountain Iron, Minnesota. She spent much of her teenage years involved in her grandmother’s church and decided early on that she always wanted to be serving God within the church. She’s served in many roles at different churches since then. Laurie has been involved with serving at Calvary since 2012, and been on staff since 2015. Laurie’s love language is acts of service, and she finds much satisfaction in serving others as much as she possibly can.

Laurie is married to Jeff and they have two grown children, Adrianna and Joshua. Jeff and Laurie moved to Saint Cloud in 1995 when they got married, and the Bovitz family has been at Calvary since 2008. In Laurie’s spare time she loves to travel (especially cruising), spending time on or near water, reading, crocheting, doing jigsaw puzzles, hanging out with their pups, and being with her family whenever she can.

Facilities Manager

Greg Trunk

Greg Sr. is originally from Princeton, MN; after the Army, he moved with his family from there to St. Cloud to finish his schooling. Work transferred him around the state and to Wisconsin. He felt pulled to be closer to home and moved back here five years ago. He and his wife, Sherre, will soon be married 44 years. They have one son, Greg, who has a beautiful and talented wife (yes, we are Shannon's in-laws) and four wonderful children: Abigail, Charlotte, Anthony, and Liam.

Greg has had a heart for serving others all his life and feels incredibly privileged to serve the Calvary family. While he and Sherre have only been here a short time, they immediately fell in love with the body of Christ here. He looks forward to helping the church fulfill its mission. Greg enjoys being a grandfather, golfing, woodworking, fishing, hunting, and playing games.

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.
