Pastor Dave Peters
Preaching the Word, pastoring God's people, caring for his wife and family: That's Dave Peters. He completed the staff as Lead Pastor in November 2017. Now living on Juniper Road in Center Valley, Dave, his wife Carletta, and their five children (four still home) have quickly become part of the church and community. In the pulpit, over a cup of coffee, anytime you stop by to say, "Hello," you'll find Dave to be a caring friend.
Pastor Tim Hogan
Youth and Young Adults
With a passion for ministry with teens and young adults, Tim Hogan is a welcome addition to the staff. He and his wife Alon began ministry at Calvary on August 1, 2017 but they are not new to the church family. Alon grew up in Coopersburg and participated in Calvary's ministries from her elementary school days. Tim served as a Youth Intern and is very familiar with our families and youth ministry staff. The Hogan family includes a lively little boy, Emerson, and his younger sister Ezra.
Pastor Rick Paashaus
Rick and his wife, Arlene, have been involved in the ministry at Coopersburg since 1976. Giving oversight of worship and Christian education ministries, Rick has a passion for the family and the practical application of the Word. Their three married sons were born and raised in Coopersburg.
Pastor Tom Shorb
Tom has served on the pastoral staff of Calvary Church since 1986. He served as lead pastor during that time, overseeing the pulpit ministries and sharing the pastoral care. He is now the Visitation Pastor on a part-time basis. A graduate of Covenant College and Westminster Theological Seminary, Pastor Tom is committed to the clear teaching of the Scriptures and the compassionate care of the flock. He and his wife, Yvonne, have three married children.
After Jen's vision for the Preschool at Calvary came to fruition, she has served as the Preschool's Director for a decade. Along with her degree in early childhood education and ten year experience with the preschool, Jen is mother of two fine young men. She and her husband Rich live in Limeport.
As Office Manager, Darlene keeps things moving smoothly and enables our Pastors to function effectively. She is an amazing asset to our ministries. She and her husband, Randy, have two married children, Matt and Rachel.
Maintaining the facilities for a 7 day a week ministry is challenging, but Randy does it with excellence. Our Property Manager and his wife Darlene enjoy camping in Maine and watching the Phillies. We are most appreciative of their ministry.
Church Office Assistant
Cindy assists in the church office on Mondays and Fridays, giving our office manager, Darlene Rehrig, a bit of relief. She cares for several administrative duties, fills in for Darlene when she is not available, and helps maintain many of our church records.
