 Zack leads a great worship team, and Upcountry Calvary's youth. He works full time at Hawai‘i Gas while serving the Upcountry Calvary body weekly. You'll see Zack on stage Sundays leading the body of Christ in beautiful worship.

Kristen Nagura

Women's Leader

Kristen works hard to serve the women in Upcountry Calvary year after year. She is the wife of Pastor Rick and mother of three children. Pastor Rick couldn't have started Upcountry Calvary without Kristen's love and support.


Jared Nagura

Jared leads "Coalition", Upcountry Calvary's young adult group. Early after college he started a clothing brand focused on sharing God's love. Jared's beautiful wife Tati continually provides loving support for their business and ministry.

Andre Lacour

Ocean activity enthusiast Andre not only has a passion for sailing but for ministry. When he is not on the ocean, or working for the county parks department with his wife Sirena, he is putting bible studies together for Upcountry Calvary's middle school students.

Rory & Sanamy Mau

Keiki Church Leaders

A power couple with servant hearts, what more could you ask for? Rory & Sanamy work hard weekly to ensure your children are learning God's word in Keiki church. They are a huge blessing to us, and we are sure they will be for you and your ‘ohana as well.


Hardworking family man Ikaika gives his best to his family at home and to our ‘ohana at Upcountry Calvary. He leads a team of ushers who ensure chairs are out, everyone finds ample parking, and you feel God's love the moment you walk in the door!
