Calvary’s Pastoral Staff
We have a wide range of personalities working on staff here at Calvary, from a Passionate Latino Pastor to a laid back Filipino Worship Pastor. We come from different walks of life, backgrounds, and eras but we have one thing in common- people. We love working together to help and love on others. You will find our staff to be full of life, energy and the love of Christ. There's nothing we love more than to see our Calvary Alameda family happy and smiling, and we would love for you to stop by our office to visit.
