2019, so far, has been a time of change and growth in the leadership at Calvary. We are thankful for what the Lord is doing!
We are excited to have Erik Van Treuren as our newest deacon candidate. We thank the Lord for Erik and Naomi’s willingness to serve and bless Calvary with their gifts.
Earlier this year, we also added Brian Neves, joined by his wife Michelle, and Bruce Wyder to the deacon candidates.
Elder and Deacon Ordination
On February 24, 2019, we held an ordination for our elder and deacon candidates during our morning service. Greg Ho, Khaleef Crumbley, Joe Fantuzzo, Brian Gussis, and Ermanno Bibbo (not pictured) were ordained.
Our pastor preached a sermon on the qualifications of both positions, and then he asked the men to affirm their willingness to carry out what the Lord has called and prepared them to do. Likewise, the pastor asked the congregation to acknowledge their part in helping our elders and deacons carry out their duties.
After this, Pastor Babij and Dwayne prayed over Khaleef and Greg. These four then prayed over the deacons. We then celebrated with our newly ordained elders and deacons in the Fellowship Hall!
We thank the Lord for the many ways he is expanding our leadership and directing our church and pray the Lord will bless and keep these servants as they continue in His work!
