This is my Story
I was born in Oskaloosa, Iowa on October 26th, 1965 to Albert and Beverly Calaway. My father was minister. My family moved to Springfield, Missouri when I was sixteen years of age in 1982. That is where and when I met Vicki (Goss) Calaway and we have been together ever since. I graduated High School in 1984 and started my undergraduate studies in 1985. I earned a B.A. in 1988. We moved to Hammond, Indiana in 1989 and began our adventure that still continues today. In 1999 I earned a Masters in Biblical Literature and in 2015 a Doctor of Management in Organizational Leadership.
I enjoy playing golf and tennis, running and bike riding. My hobbies include politics, and triathlons. We live in Munster, Indiana. I am the lead pastor of The Gate in Hammond, Indiana. We have served the Gate for over 32 years. The Gate is a multi-site, multi-ethnic church with five campuses. Our church is in both urban/inner-city and suburban areas so we provide a wide range of missional and attractional programming. Over the past 30 years we have planted four churches and over 20 house churches, started a non-profit company, and started businesses to help people gain jobs and additional sources of revenue. We have also started a housing development company Keystone communities to provide affordable housing, among other projects.
