We are a Christ-centered, non-denominational church in the Northland that creates space for all people to experience the COMPASSIONATE LOVE OF THE FATHER.
Pastor Brady - a long-time resident of Platte City, MO - committed himself to sharing God's love with the community since he began in ministry as a Youth Pastor in 1998. His desire to foster an authentic love of God in people's lives through outreach and ministry eventually lead to the planting of The Calling Community Church on Father's Day in 2014 with a core team of men and women who want to see others experience the compassionate love of the Father and be transformed by His love.
In his spare time, you can find Pastor Brady enjoying a cup of coffee at Bee Creek, spending time with his wife, five children, and two grandchildren, or delighting the hearts of sports-loving children and adults around Kansas City. While we don't believe in werewolves around here, we do think it's pretty awesome that Pastor B transforms into the KC Wolf from time to time (Go Chiefs!).
But ultimately, Pastor Brady's joy is greatest when he witnesses others discovering God's love and calling in their own lives. He is committed to loving God and loving others well each and every day of his life.
Born and raised in the Kansas City area, Tony is passionate about using his homegrown musical gifts to spread the love of Christ in his hometown where The Calling Community Church is planted. His approach to worship ministry is to trust the gift of worship in those musicians whom God has called, and to collaboratively usher the body of Christ into the Lord's presence.
An avid reader, music-listener, and self-proclaimed history buff, Tony spends a lot of time reading about music, creating music, and discoursing about modern music history...or the most recent concert he attended. He enjoys spending time with his literature-loving wife (where they frequently debate both music and lyrics) and delighting in their two young children. While he does hold a 9-5 (Mortgage banker by day...worship minister by night), he is fascinated and inspired by music and the way God uses and moves through music to capture and embrace the human heart. It is his highest hope to encounter God in new ways through worship and to bring others to that place of encounter with the Most High...and also to live in J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth.
More information to come about Beth and her call to ministry,
Jamie has lived in Platte City for the last 25+ years, 18 of which she has spent married to the love of her life (and mad guitar-playing-and-singing) David. They have two children, 16-year-old Jesse and 7-year-old Elijah, and Jamie lives her life loving the Lord and doing everything and anything with her boys. Her heart for ministry to children and their families spurns from a delight to witness others realize and embrace the love of Christ.
Jamie brings her kind and intentional heart to the business world where she manages the local consignment store, Wear House and More. At other times, she can be found delving into a good book, playing around with photography, or singing along to her husband's music (or the latest Lauren Daigle album!). When asked about her nerd-factor, Jamie would politely decline having one...unless you ask her boys about her "slight" obsession with Hallmark movies.
Jamie's heart for her family overflows to her heart for the children and families around her. She is blessed by her calling to children's ministry and hopes to invest and inspire God's youngest witnesses to worship Him and build each other up through His love.
Trish grew up in Wichita, Kansas. Her faith was formed by faithful parents, a really great youth pastor and a solid upbringing at Metropolitan Baptist Church.
As a young adult she moved to the Kansas City area and worked as an administrative assistant for a few different companies. It was in these jobs that she honed her organization skills that make her a perfect fit for her role at The CCC.
Pastor Brady is the people person and she is the paper person. It was a match made in heaven! Actually it was an answer to a prayer as a young girl. Trish always knew that some day she would be married to a pastor.
She spends her weeks keeping track of Pastor Brady, plus all the office and calendar details. Although it is not her calling, she teaches in Children's Ministry in the 10:30 AM service. She has served her husband and the church faithfully since day one with a "whatever needs to be done" attitude.
In her spare time she loves reading, worshipping, listening to podcasts, keeping up with her adult children, watching her granddaughters, walking her dog Annie and being a friend and a confidant to ladies in the church.
