Pastoral Staff


Helstrom Family

Lead Pastors Jacob and Katie Helstrom:

My wife, our two children James and Mckenzie, and I moved to Milbank in January of 2016 to become the Associate Pastor here, at calvary. It's been an adventure, as seven short months later, we had the privilege of accepting the role of Lead Pastors at this wonderful, growing church. Katie and I both absolutely love people and we believe there is truly nothing we'd rather do than see people grow in their relationship with Christ! We believe church should be real, that God can be experienced, and that God wants to use you in His plans to change the world one life at a time. We are so excited for what the future holds for this vibrant, diverse church and we can't wait to meet you! 

Our Leadership Board

We, at Calvary, believe in strong leadership. This is leadership that is all about serving others and reaching as many people as we can. It's the kind of leadership modeled by Jesus, and it's the kind that our board members and their families desire to model.

Our leadership board prayerfully and strategically looks for ways, as a church family, to reach the next generation. 

They roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty serving in different ministries. 

They are committed to helping us grow and equipping us to do what God has called us to!
