Cal Maskery has been on the Board since 1997. Cal initiated the Board of Directors for the purpose of accountability, and to sharpen the direction of the mission of Harvest House. Cal serves as the visionary for the Board of Directors.
Cal brings a lifetime of experience to his role at Harvest House. In 1981 Cal followed his father’s footsteps and spent four years incarcerated. During his time in Dorchester Penitentiary Cal watched a Billy Graham crusade on TV. Cal pleaded with God for help and vowed to follow God the rest of his days if He would help him. That night, being led by the words of Billy Graham, Cal accepted God into His heart and his life changed forever.
