Ilze Calahan

Campus Operations

I am Ilze Calahan, married to Mark for over 20 years. We have four children, Nathan, Zoe, Matthew, and Sadie.

We first visited Northwest during the Christmas Eve service in 2002 and became members two years later. I’ve enjoyed serving in various positions 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 😉.
