The Ministry Team
The Ministry Team
Pastor Lawrence has been in ministry for 30 years and has Pastored Calvary for 11 of them. He and his wife Tammy have been married for 26 years and have raised three amazing kids Jonathan, Victoria and Bethany. He is passionate about preaching God's Word and doing what it says. Pastor Lawrence has a heart to father people with the love and guidance of our Heavenly Father. He models how to follow Jesus in faithful obedience by simply answering "Yes" to the Lord. Pastor Lawrence loves learning, confident people, missions, and a Spirit-filled church service. On a personal note, he enjoys a great cup of coffee, a round or two (or three) of golf with friends, as well as "Crews'n" in the Jeep and being out on the water.
"Sisterhood" & Huronia Section Women's Team Lead
Tammy has been in ministry with Pastor Lawrence for 26 years. She has a phenomenal ability to relate to people - young & old, which has helped in leading her 3 children to find their own love for ministry and people. She is a sought after conference speaker who leads from humility, humour and life's story. Tammy is also a Nurse and works at Barrie's own Royal Victoria Hospital where her love for people is genuinely expressed. Her patients and co-workers alike love her witty humour and ability to bring a shining hope to every situation. Tammy has accepted the challenge of leading women to a place of honour, humility and deep relationship with the Father. She also enjoys reality TV, good music and is a sucker for a great dessert.
