Jessica Balanda

Administrative Coordinator

Jessica was born and raised in Boring, Oregon, a suburb of Portland. Growing up in the church, she gave her life to Jesus at a very young age. In 2008 she moved to Tucson at the age of 18.

In 2011, Jessica first came on staff with Calvary Tucson where she worked in a number of ministries including Youth, Coffee Shop and the Bookstore.

Jessica took a step of faith and moved to Florida in January of 2015 to help with the Reach Orlando church plant that was started by Adam Parsons and his family. After one year, Jessica returned to Tucson. At this time, she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and has been privileged to work in leadership and management-level roles in for-profit and nonprofit companies.

In 2019, Jessica got married to her amazing husband, Matt. He is the Vice Principal of the High School here at Calvary and together they have a passion for pouring into the students as they grow and cultivate their relationships with Jesus.

Over the years, Jessica has been involved in many different ministries at Calvary Tucson including Women’s Ministry, Children’s Ministry and Reach College. She is back on staff with Calvary Tucson and is so excited to use her giftings to work behind the scenes on various Administrative projects!

The heart of man plans his way, but the LORD establishes his steps.
