Max is the Junior and Senior High Youth Pastor at Calvary Chapel Eastside. He began attending the youth group at CCE as a freshman in high school where God demonstrated His love for a broken, filthy sinner. He decided to follow Jesus that year and was baptized on the youth group’s annual Bike Trip.
During his time in the youth group, Max received God’s calling to be a pastor and met his wife, Ellenore. After graduating high school and working in the area, he married Ellenore and enlisted in the United States Army. Max and Ellenore served as leaders in the youth ministries of the churches where they participated during their time in the military.
In 2018, near the end of his military contract, Max felt the Lord leading them back to the Pacific Northwest to reconnect with family and to serve at CCE. Max is currently studying at Northwest University, majoring in Pastoral Ministries and developing the gifts God has given him.
Max and Ellenore have two precious children, Evelyn and Logan, and are deeply grateful for the opportunity to serve the Body of Christ at CCE.
