Mr. Ed Varoz
Growing up in California, Mr. Varoz learned the foundations of a relationship with God but was not fully committed to the Lord. He and his family moved to Albuquerque in 1996 and in 1999 and began attending Calvary Chapel East. He rededicated his life to the Lord and shortly after was asked to help out in the church youth group. He was reluctant at first but began to realize how passionate he was about sharing the Lord with teenagers. In 2003, he took over the youth group and continues to lead the group today. His passion is to help kids fall in love with Jesus so that they do not feel enticed to fall in love with the world. His desire is that students will leave Bible class better disciples of Christ, confident in why they believe what they believe and eager to share the gospel of Christ with those around them. Mr. Varoz and his wife Val have one daughter.
