PASTORS


Joe Brown

Lead Pastor

I grew up in great churches, and then had my faith tested in college at Berkeley. That whole experience led me to vocational ministry, with a passion to empower believers to live out and share the gospel in a hostile world. I did finish an architecture degree in '94, but I went on to seminary at Talbot to complete a Masters in Divinity ('98). I was a youth pastor for a lot of years in Southern California, an associate pastor on the central coast and a senior pastor in San Jose before coming here in November, 2014.

Dale Goncalves

Executive Pastor

My wife Colleen and I moved to Manteca in 2010 when we asked the Lord to bring us to a place that would be strategic for ministry. We have hosted and led Life Groups as well as served in leadership for women’s and men’s ministry. I also volunteer with Calvary's Living Well Ministries once a week. I have a passion to see believers be fully engaged in becoming strong disciples of Jesus who are also making other strong disciples of Jesus. I have 2 grown daughters and 4 grandchildren.

Judy Basye

Pastor,
Children's Ministry

I've been the Children's Ministry Pastor at Calvary since 2002. I have a sweet German shepherd named Disney. Yes, I love Disneyland and all things Disney. I oversee a vibrant children's ministry that includes Sunday mornings (Nursery – 6th grade), AWANA during the school year, Bible Day Camp in mid-July, and two children's choirs which perform in May. I also oversee the Monday – Friday Preschool Lions N' Lambs. I have been in ministry for 30 years.


Kyle Andrews

Pastor,
Student Ministries

I grew up in a Christian home, but never really lived the way God wanted me to. I was living a double life, and it was burdening my life in ways I couldn’t believe. However, during my 8th grade year, I encountered God at Hume Lake Christian Camps and my life was changed forever. I finally received the love, healing, and identity I had been longing for. I got into ministry to share the Jesus I had encountered, in the hope that others could experience Him as I have. I have my Bachelor in Criminal Justice at Sacramento State University (2011), and a Masters in Theology from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary in Lynchburgh, Virginia (2016).


Chinh Vu

Pastor,
Young Adults & Outreach

I grew up in Vietnam until my family immigrated to San Rafael, CA in 1994.  I enrolled as a part-time student at the Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary in the Fall of 2005, and graduated with a Master of Divinity in the Spring of 2014. During those 9 years, I worked full-time for Wells Fargo Bank and Chase Bank while ministering to youths and young adults in San Francisco on the weekends. I met my wife Rachel on a mission trip to Malaysia in 2006, and we got married in 2010. Rachel and I enjoy traveling, trying new foods, and learning about different cultures. My favorites hobbies are: playing soccer and reading good books. I love to connect with young adults about God and life over coffee.
