Harry Miletich-Hospitality Coordinator Volunteer
In the summer of 2016, God revealed to me that I am transgender (FTM), which released me from severe depression. Two months later I moved from the Okanagan in BC to Calgary to be near my family and to start the journey I have always dreamed about: returning to school to pursue a career in the medical field. God is not ‘safe’, but He is good! I am looking forward to continuing to grow to be like Jesus, and looking forward to seeing CQC thrive!

CQC Organizational Committee
Tom Melvin – Deer Park United Church
Tom Melvin is the ordained minister at Deer Park United and the chair of the CQC Organizational Committee. He works with a dedicated staff who see the church’s mission as one of outreach to the community. Growing up in the southern US during the 1960’s gave Tom a keen sense of justice and inclusion as he witnessed the difficult times of the civil rights movement. Many wonderful and happenstance encounters with different peoples have fueled his passion for declaring God’s love for all and accepting all people whoever they are and wherever they are.
