Clark Van Wick grew up in Orange County, California. Although he received salvation as a young boy, it was not until 1982 when he truly began living for the Lord. It was also at this time when he met and married his wife, Sally. Clark and Sally became part of the fellowship at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, where they grew in the Lord, and began serving in the Children’s Ministry. In 1989, Clark, Sally, and their two sons moved from Orange County to Temecula, where the Lord put it on Clark’s heart to attend Bible College in Vista. Simultaneously, the Lord opened the door for Clark to lead a home Bible study. It began as a small group of people meeting to study the Word, and share Christ’s love with one another. However, within a year, the once small group had grown substantially, and group members asked Clark to change the meeting day to Sunday, and become their pastor. This was the most humbling experience of Clark’s life, but he accepted, knowing this is where the Lord called him. Shortly thereafter, the property for Calvary Chapel Bible Fellowship was purchased in Temecula Wine Country, where the congregation meets today. Aside from pastoring the Bible fellowship, Clark is also an instructor at the Calvary Chapel Bible College in Murrieta, California, and often speaks at conferences, events, and retreats. Clark has a passion for Israel, and leads a group of pastors and congregation members through a Biblical tour of the Holy Land twice a year. In his spare time, Clark enjoys studying the Word, surfing, and spending time with his grandchildren.
Sally Van Wick accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior in 1976 at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa where she and her husband began serving in ministry in 1984. She is currently the Director of Women’s Ministries at Calvary Chapel Bible Fellowship where her husband, Clark Van Wick, has served as Senior Pastor since 1996.
In addition to writing Bible studies, Sally teaches the women’s weekly Bible study at her home church. Sally has traveled the world to speak at various Christian women’s retreats and events. She is a speaker at the When Leaders Lead Women’s Conference in Murrieta, California and has spoken at the Calvary Chapel West Coast Pastor’s Wives Retreat. She has also lead pastors’ wives and women’s leaders on Biblical tours of Israel.
Sally is passionate about the Word of God and considers it a privileged calling to teach women how to study the Bible and grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, always pointing others to Jesus.
In her spare time, Sally is dedicated spending time with her family. Pastor Clark and Sally have been married since 1982 and are the parents of two men, both of whom are married to beautiful young women. Sally has three grandchildren who are truly the greatest joys in her life.
