Pastor Dave Love grew up in San Diego, California, where he spent most of his time on the beach while pursuing his own worldly view of success as an insurance and security agent. Eventually, God got his attention through a series of life-changing events, and Dave once again submitted his life to the Person of Jesus Christ in April of 1988.
John and Margaret Winder both submitted their lives to Christ in the early seventies. At Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, they grew in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ while being part of a home Bible study. John was called to ministry as a pastor and Margaret as a ministry helper. For nearly forty years, they have been growing in the Lord and serving Him together across the country, in Southern California, Connecticut, Chicago, and now Colorado. John and Margaret have two wonderful kids and three incredible grandkids.
Originally from Southern California, Dave and Lisa Weston left behind the sandy beaches and hopped in their covered wagon with daughter Kelsie, son Cody, and their three yellow labs, all headed toward the majestic Rocky Mountains. Over the past 7 years in colorful Colorado, Dave and Lisa have passed the time by befriending deer; utilizing the snow button on their SUV; and entertaining a perpetual stream of houseguests. When not giving her favorite dog Daisy Mae lots of love, Lisa enjoys spending time with family and friends. When not launching rockets into space, Dave spends his time woodworking, teaching home fellowship, and serving on the board at Calvary Chapel Castle Rock.
Originally from the suburbs of Chicago, Chris didn’t grow up in the church. After years of searching, stumbling, running, alcoholism and drug addiction, Chris was brought to his knees and cried out to the Lord. In July of 2007, Chris submitted his life and his heart to Jesus Christ.
Frank gave his life to the Lord at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa during a Saturday night concert. After getting married, Frank and Lisa mixed up their priorities in life and started seeking that next promotion or raise instead of God. There was an emptiness in their hearts.
