meet our pastor


Music has always been something I’ve enjoyed tremendously, starting with Elvis in the late fifties and the Beatles in the early sixties. So, when at 17, a girl I was interested in invited me to a Contemporary Christian Concert, I gladly accepted. Instead of meeting her and developing a relationship with her, I met Jesus and started developing a relationship with Him. About a year and a half later, I started attending Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa. Again, because of the contemporary music and the incredibly fascinating Bible teaching by Pastor Chuck Smith (nothing like the catechism and the 10 minute social sermonettes I was used to before I was a Christian), I was drawn by the Spirit of God. My relationship with the living God has grown more and more ever since. 


I met my bride, Debbie, at Calvary and we were married there. We started our family soon after and were blessed with two sons, David and Adam, each two years apart. 


In 1978 we began our ministry at Calvary Chapel in Claremont, CA. From there I have served as associate and senior pastor in Ontario and Pomona, CA and in Kansas City, MO, Billings, MT, Lake Arrowhead, CA. 


Now, we have been in Cle Elum since 2006 where we have the privilege to serve God's people here. We're so thankful for this opportunity and these people and we look forward to what God wants to do here through us and through this wonderful body of believers. 


We have been incredibly blessed to be associated with Calvary Chapel all these years and we thank God for all he’s done in our lives through this ministry. We look forward to many more fruitful years serving the Lord and continually thank God for the privilege of doing so.


Senior Pastor,

Dan Renshaw
