Calvary cannot only consider how to use the city we live in to build a great church for ourselves, God would forbid us to do so. Instead Jeremiah reminds us, that as exiles, we ought to be asking how we can use our resources to sacrificially seek a great and flourishing city where we live in every way: economically, socially, and spiritually. For if our shalom in Christ is secure, we can labor selflessly for the shalom of the city we live in.

Josh Johnson

Student Pastor

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.
