Hi!  I’m Kelly Beitz…otherwise known as wife to Mark, mom to Trent, Jade and Gavin, teacher, social worker, camper, artist… but most importantly – Daughter of the King! I grew up not far from here in Bloomingdale.  I gave my life to Jesus when I was about 12 years old at Silver Lake Camp, and I continue to grow in my understanding of what that means everyday.

Currently I teach part-time with the Waterloo School Board and pour myself into being there for my family and Calvary’s Lighthouse Ministry. I started attending Calvary just over 10 years ago and God slowly started to draw me into the child and family ministries here.  Now, I feel like I am jumping in with both feet!

I have seen evidence of  how much God has in store for our kids and I see them encountering Him in more intimate ways than I did at their age.  I have a passion and a longing for all of our  kids and families to really know God, know how much He loves them, know who they are in Him and to be given opportunities to build a relationship with a living and loving Abba Father.  God has been increasing my commitment to this ministry and I feel like stepping into a staff role is a public declaration of my commitment.  I am excited to continue to listen for God, follow his leading and have His Kingdom Come at Calvary and far beyond!
