Welcome to Calvary Youth

Calvary Youth is a place where students can come and be themselves and feel valued and loved.
At Calvary, we want to connect students to God and to each other, equip them to live out their faith, and move them to be difference makers in their world!


Thursdays, 6:30-8pm Grades 6-12 

Join us for our series called KNOWN where we  will help students understand that their value is not in what others say about them, or even what they say or think about themselves, but on what God says about them, and that they are KNOWN personally and loved by their creator!

Sr Youth Hangout 8-9pm after Youth


Sundays, 10am  during the service

Over the next 7 weeks, we will take a look at how Jesus impacted the lives of so many people. We'll see that it's not about having 1000 followers on TikTok, or going viral, or producing great content ... it's about looking at the people around us, and focusing in on One at a Time.  Looking through the gospels, we will see how Jesus impacted one life at a time, and see how we can go and do the same.

Join 350+ youth and leaders from across Ontario for an amazing weekend at
Muskoka Woods.

Andrew McGrath

Youth Pastor
I have  served as Youth Pastor at Calvary Church  for 13 years, I love camping, kayaking and hiking with my wife, Sarah, and our 3 kids -  Isaac, Isla, and Josiah.   I also enjoy plucking on the guitar, playing hockey, golf and cornhole, or just sitting back and watching movies building LEGO or listening to live music. My joy in life comes less from what I'm doing, and more from who I'm doing it with.

Beth Eastman

Crew Leader & Social Media
Hey! I’m Beth. 😊 I work at Niagara Life Centre as a communications coordinator… which basically means all things social media/graphic design. (If you ever see an insta post for NLC - that’s me! 😃) Anyway, when I’m not at work I am usually doing something with music or hanging out with friends. I LOVE being a youth leader and I think the main reason I chose to help out with youth is because you guys are ✨amazing people✨ and I get excited watching you and helping you get to know Jesus. 🩵 So, that’s a little bit about me - next time you see me I’d love to hear a bit about you! Can’t wait to hang out, see ya soon!

Crew Leader
I'm a Firefighter with the Burlington Fire Department In my spare time I like to be outdoors playing with my kids or taking them for bike rides. I could talk for 30 minutes straight about either lord of the rings or Harry Potter. I’ve always had a passion for working with kids that I developed in my previous job as a paediatric nurse and took that passion and used it to try and give back to church
Hey! My name is Margarete 👋 I work at Niagara Life Centre as an Office Administrator. In my spare time I enjoy singing, reading, walking & acting in community theatre productions. 🎭 I love being a youth leader! We have a slogan at my work that sums up my choice to be in youth ministry, it says ‘because no one should have to go it alone’. My hope is that every youth who walks through our doors knows that they no longer have to go through this crazy journey of life alone. God has given me a passion for this ministry and it’s such a blessing to serve in this space!
I love baking, sewing and crafty things.  I love art and bright colours.  But really, one of my most favourite things is connecting with people.  I'd love to hear your story and share with you how God has been faithful to me.  I work on a farm specializing in fruit of all kinds (I had no idea there were so many varieties of plums out there) and roses (I was also blown away by how many rose varieties there are).  If you'd like to hear me talk for 30 minutes straight, ask me about roses, Lord of the Rings, my favourite science fiction movies, or how God has worked in my life.
