Guided by Pastors

The Pastoral staff team is led by the Senior Pastor. This team oversees the day-to-day ministry and operations of the church. These staff pastors serve the congregation and are responsible for the development of the spiritual life of the church. The Pastoral Ministry Team members serve on the Local Presbytery Board.

Protected by Elders

The Elders are members of the congregation, appointed by the Senior Pastor to help oversee the finances and direct the provision of the facilities needed by the church. They provide counsel to the Senior Pastor regarding the major financial commit­ments of the church. The Elders serve on the Local Presbytery Board.

Strengthened by Overseers

The Overseers are four pastors of respected congregations and ministries who love Calvary Church and its pastor and are willing to provide spiritual protection to the church. They may be called in to help in accountability matters relating to the Senior Pas­tor if requested to do so by the Pastors or Elders. The Overseers serve as Apostolic Elders.
