Pastor Mike Calacci, Lead Pastor
Pastor Mike was born and raised in Rockford, Illinois. He grew up sporadically attending a Lutheran Church, but pursuing success and status as the key to happiness. In his early twenties, while working in downtown Chicago in real estate development, he saw the futility of his pursuits in gaining happiness. He heard the message of Jesus and put his faith in him in February of 1989.
Shortly after his conversion, Mike felt called to ministry and joined the staff of a church while attending Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He received his Masters Degree in Religious Education in 1994. He later returned to Trinity and has completed his coursework for a Ph.D. in educational studies.
Mike has continued in local church ministry since 1989 with most of those years spent serving churches in the Chicago land area. He began serving CrossView in January of 2017. He loves to see people and ministry thrive through creating and implementing pathways toward Christ.
Mike married his wife Tina in 1992 and they have been blessed with 4 sons.
