Welcome to Calvary Cambridge! Our leadership team is committed to serving Jesus Christ and serving you in any way that we can. Please take a moment to read a brief introduction of each of them.
Joey Rozek answered the call of God to come to England in February of 2007 and after a year of prayerfully waiting on the Lord and leading a Bible Study out of his home, he became the founding pastor of Calvary Cambridge.
The Lord set Joey apart at the young age of 10 and gave him a strong passion to lead people to Christ, to inspire others to wholeheartedly live and give the Gospel, and to make disciples who will go on to make disciples. Over the years, Joey has served as a youth pastor, evangelist, and Bible teacher in two large churches from Southern California to the east coast in New Jersey until he eventually was led to move overseas to the UK where he became the founding pastor of our church fellowship.
After 10 and a half years of pioneering and establishing a Christ centered, Bible teaching church and working as a chaplain supporting teenagers through life’s challenges and pressures, Joey and his family felt led to return to his home country with missionary hearts to begin a new chapter of faith to see restoration in God’s church and to see a harvest of souls in the East Coast of New Jersey.
These verses continue to be Joey’s ongoing testimony:
“My heart is overflowing with a good theme; I recite my composition concerning the King; My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.” (Psalm 45:1) “O God, You have taught me from my youth; And to this day I declare Your wondrous works.” (Psalm 71:17) “To live is Christ; and to die is gain.” (Phil. 1:21)
James Peat is our Lead Pastor after being commissioned by the founding pastor Joey Rozek in the summer of 2017.
He was born and raised in Cambridge, baptised in Scotland, and since his conversion has travelled in India and the Middle East.
James’ vision is for the church to operate in the power and love of Jesus. His ministry is focused around teaching both the history and the present reality of the Gospel and he has a special interest in the semitic roots of the early church.
With his Cambridge upbringing and a variety of cross cultural experiences behind him, James is able to relate to all kinds of people and is passionate about seeing people set free from any form of bondage and living as true disciples of Jesus Christ.
Andy Higgins is our Assistant Pastor and oversees the Youth Ministry at Calvary Cambridge.
Andy was born in Manchester, England and was raised in a Christ centred home. However, it wasn’t until he began studying at the University of York in 2009, Andy made a true commitment to follow Jesus as his Lord and Saviour. During this time, his desire to grow in relationship with the Lord deepened, with doors opening to study at Bible College in 2014 for a year. Following this, Andy moved to Cambridge to teach Science at a local college, which he continues in today. Through this he has many opportunities to minister and share the Lord with the youth at the Christian union and Questions club.
Andy has a big heart for the lost and broken youth of this generation and seeks to bring the hope of Jesus Christ to a hopeless generation. He continues to be zealous in learning and teaching the word of God; that the he may continue to read the word and allow the word to change and transform him into the image of Christ.
Andy and his wife, Bekah, serve together in the Youth Ministry.
Sebastian Simon serves as our Deacon overseeing all kinds of practical aspects within our church.
The Lord brought him to Calvary Cambridge by meeting pastor Joey in a very special way where there was an instant connection in the Spirit. Since then he has been privileged to be part of what he calls an amazing church fellowship that is committed to discipleship and being a pure lampstand for the Lord in Cambridge.
Sebastian is really excited to serve and see people becoming a family of wholehearted disciples with a pure and simple devotion to Christ Jesus.
