Hi, My name is Jake Nold and I’m the Youth Director at Calvary. I know what you’re thinking, what a coincidence having the same last name as the lead pastor… But I assure you, that’s, at most, only part of the reason I got this job… I graduated from Bethel University with a degree in Missional Ministry. And, in July of 2018, I married my wife Meredith. After spending a few months backpacking in South America, I returned back home and started working for Calvary.
What brought you to Calvary?
I grew up at Calvary and grew up as a part of XStream. Calvary’s mission and desire to be a positive impact on the community has played a huge part in my life and was a big reason for why I wanted to come on staff here.
What is your favorite thing about serving at Calvary?
One of my favorite parts about serving at Calvary is the people who I serve with. Youth Ministry can be tough, but I have a team of amazing leaders who love students with such passion. It’s amazing to see and it’s amazing to have a small part in.
