Ilze Calahan

Staff portrait of Ilze Calahan

Ilze brings a kind smile and playful spirit with her to work as part of our Campus Operations team. Cleaning, organizing, whatever it takes to help keep the church beautiful inside and out!

She has been married to Mark for over 20 years. They have four children, Nathan, Zoe, Matthew, and Sadie, who they homeschool.

The Calahan family first visited Northwest during the Christmas Eve service in 2002 and became members two years later. Ilze has enjoyed serving in various ways around the church ever since!

I love Northwest and its members. I joined the team because I believe the church should be beautiful inside and out.”
