Who we are!

Matt has been attending Calvary Chapel for 5 years and serving in the Children's Ministry for 4 years. He has served in his position as Pastoral Assistant for 1 year.  He is married to his wife Helga, and they have one son named Samuel.  Matt is passionate about kids meeting Jesus and putting their trust in Him.  He is excited that both him and the Children's Ministry team can walk with the Calvary kids as they grow up to become faithful Christ serving leaders and world changers.

Proverbs 22:6, "Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it."

Hello everyone!  My name is Michelle Friesen.  I have been married to my wonderful husband Greg Friesen for 15 amazing years. The Lord has blessed us with three beautiful children Taylor (14), Eryn (12), and Owen (10).  I have been attending Calvary Chapel for the past 15 years and love it! God has placed a passion in my heart to see children loving Jesus with all their heart, soul, mind and strength (Matt 22:37).  I am very blessed to be serving in the children’s ministry at Calvary Chapel.  The leadership team has released me to use my gifts in teaching, leading worship, and dance with children.  Psalm 145:4 says, “One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts.” This scripture sums up my heart for our children at Calvary.  I want to be used to commend all that Jesus is and has done to the next generation.   I look forward to seeing all that the Lord has for us in this ministry!

Be Blessed,


"Children are an inheritance from the Lord.  They are a reward from him."  Psalm 127:3.
Hi there!  My name is Irma and I've been blessed to be part of Calvary Chapel for 15 years.  My husband Jim and I have a large blended family that includes 11 grandchildren.  Since joining the Children's Ministry team in 2010, I've been privileged to see the Lord grow the Ministry and the children we serve.  I enjoy making our Sunday School space a safe and colorful area for our kids as well as supporting the rest of the team by filling in wherever there is a need.  I love to see the children's faces on Sunday morning and continually inspired by their energy and enthusiasm.  My daily prayer is that the Lord's will be done in the lives of each and every child that has been entrusted to us.
