Pastor Paul Bartelme, Lead Pastor… studied Music and Business at Southern Oregon State College. He also studied Ministry and Biblical Studies at Calvary Chapel Bible College in the early 90’s in Vista, Ca, yet it would be inaccurate to pin him down as a “Calvary-ite” (affectionately speaking) due to serving on staff at both denominational and non-denominational churches that represent different worship and preaching styles as well as different philosophies in ministry.
Paul is ordained with Grace International, a denomination that comprises of 2,700 churches in 90 countries.
Paul and his wife Danica have been in ministry together for 23 years, the last 12 years as lead pastors. Their work has resulted in ministries that advance the Kingdom on an international level.
Paul and Danica have been married for 22 years and they just moved to West Allis, Milwaukee, WI. They have three children age 13 and under… Jacob (13), Lily (11), and Luke (10).
Danica Bartelme, Worship Arts Director… studied Music, Art, Missions and Theology “a little here, a little there, a little everywhere” as she likes to put it.
As a Christian missionary, Danica was trained through Y.W.A.M. (Youth With A Mission) and served on missionary teams throughout the Middle East in acting troupes and street evangelism activities. She also served on a team that built a church in Thailand with Candlelight Ministries affiliated with Rich Mullins.
When Danica was 8 years old she was mesmerized by a worship leader on the platform totally immersed in the Lord’s presence at a church service. It was at that moment that she realized her calling as a worship minister and has been operating in that capacity for decades now in various churches representing different styles of worship from the traditional hymns to the contemporary songs.
