Worship Team

Ministries WorshipDebbie Hedger and Pam Minando
We believe God is worthy of all praise, reverence and love and place great emphasis on the praise and worship of God through music.

As believers, our desire is to worship God in spirit and in truth, drawing all men into His presence through the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

Our expression of worship points to a reflection of all God is so we in turn can worship Him in the beauty of holiness. We worship Him in corporate praise as well as with our whole lives.

1 Chronicles 16:29, John 4:23, Colossians 3:16, 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Service Production Team

Noah P.

The Service Production Team consists of three main functions; Sound (Audio Engineering), Video Feed & Stream, and the Overhead Projector. Each of these activities work together to provide a clear, smooth presentation of the worship music and pastoral messages to the fellowship present in the church, and to those worshiping and participating remotely, during each service or event. This “behind the scenes” effort allows everyone to focus on praising the Lord and hearing His Word.

Service Production Director – Noah Pontzer
Being the Service Production Director may seem glorious and the position every aspiring audio engineer wants to be at their house of worship. However, at Calvary Chapel Oakland County, this position is another example of not using God’s chosen position for me as a way to glorify myself and all I do, but rather keep the focus on God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit leading people towards Him. The way I know I am doing my job well is when people are focused on worship or the sermon being preached by Pastor Bill or one of the other elders. The Lord needs to be magnified in everything this department does. I hold this position not because I need this for my glory, but rather to aid in the process of leading people to the Glory of God.

The ministry provides a framework of support for Christian men to live their faith at home and at work in a fallen world. It provides a resource for fellowship and encouragement. God is calling men to be the spiritual leader in the home. We want to encourage men to love God with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength; and to be strengthened through the Word of God. This is accomplished through prayers, retreats and special events.

Saturday prayer breakfast is the 2nd Saturday of the month.


Ministries WomenBeth DesRochers

Calvary’s Women’s Ministry’s focus is to create opportunities for women to come to know Jesus Christ, to be mentored in their Christian life and to provide a place for women to connect and cultivate Christian friendships. Through the Women’s Bible Studies and special women’s events, we are reaching out to the women of our church and community with the good news.

Youth Ministry

Ethan Hahn, Ministry Leader

The Youth Ministry at Calvary Chapel Oakland County is focused on building a solid biblical foundation for the junior high and high school aged kids that will stick with them throughout the remainder of their lives. Our goal is for each student to grow in a personal relationship with the Lord as they gain knowledge of the Scriptures and a deeper knowledge of the love that God has for them, and to see their lives transformed week by week.

Senior Youth Ministry

Ethan Hahn, Leader

The Senior Youth is for grades 9-12, and focuses on knowledge of the Word of God, the person of Jesus, and growing into a mature believer and a functioning member of the body of Christ. The teaching of the Bible and the practical serving that we do on Youth Serve is “for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ.” (Eph 4:12-13 NASB95). 
In our high school ministry we have event nights, Sunday morning breakfast once a month, opportunities to serve the body, and much more. Come check out our Youth ministry and bring a friend!

Junior Youth Ministry

Michael and Samantha Orlando, Leaders

The junior youth group was created as a stepping stone class in between children’s ministry and the senior youth group for the 7th and 8th graders. The focus of the junior youth group is to build a solid foundation for their faith and answer the questions their maturing minds have as they enter middle school and prepare for high school. We have activities like youth breakfast and youth-serve once a month, game nights, and more.

“But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.” – 2nd Peter 3:18

  • K Class

Welcome to the Children’s Ministry. Jesus holds children very close to His heart and we at Calvary Chapel of Oakland County do as well. With God’s Word as our highest priority, we have designed the Children’s Ministry in such a way that kids can learn at their level and at their pace. Every child should leave our facility feeling well cared for and closer to Jesus.


Nursery and Toddler

Nursery & Toddlers Ministry - Beth DesRochers

Beth DesRochers, Leader

Children are a heritage from the Lord – The fruit of the womb is a reward. Our goal at Calvary is to extend the love within our fellowship to each child while parents refresh themselves with the Word of God during the services. Whether your child is an infant or toddler, we will give him or her the care and attention each may need to enjoy a comforting time away from you.
