Bob was raised in a Christian family but strayed in his teen years, getting involved with rock bands, drugs and the occult. But after graduating from high school he and his girlfriend, Jeanne, surrendered their lives to Christ. They soon married and became involved with a youth group that had recently moved up to Oregon from Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa, California. Bob and Jeanne served the Lord in that ministry for over 8 years.
They moved down to Arizona in 1978 and Bob worked as an insurance agent. In 1981 he began pastoring Calvary Chapel North Phoenix, where he served for the next 29 years. After transitioning the church to his second son, Jesse, in 2010, Bob and Jeanne joined the Poimen Ministries, a small group of long-time Calvary pastors, whose mission is to strengthen pastors to strengthen churches. This led them to serve in the UK for over 6 years, ministering in both the UK and Europe.
In the autumn of 2019 Bob and Jeanne moved their ministry base to Aurora, Colorado to continue assisting pastors and wives through Poimen Ministries. Bob also serves on the volunteer pastoral team at Calvary Church, Aurora, Colorado. Currently he is serving Calvary Chapel Windsor, CO as their transitional senior pastor.
Steve grew up in the Denver area with his family. He graduated from Englewood high school in 1998, and had no doubt he was going to be a firefighter, as he came from a long line of public servants (police and fire). However, that was not exactly the path God had for him. He met his wife Angela in late 2000, who introduced him to Jesus. He was very reluctant to accept God at the time. In 2003, Steve and Angela were married, just before he enlisted in the Navy. Little did Steve know that the Navy was where Jesus was ready and waiting for him! Steve came out of the military a different person. He was still confused about who and what God was, but he was on fire for the Lord.
Steve became a contractor after leaving the military and has continued in that line of work for almost 20 years. During that time, he discovered how God wanted him to serve others. Steve began serving at church, especially on the worship and sound-tech teams. He also became a volunteer firefighter. Steve found serving the community to be a rewarding way to not only help others, but also to speak truth. Steve never had any ambition to sing or play an instrument at church, because the music was pointless to him. He just wanted to "get to the message where the good stuff was." But God lovingly shook the stubbornness out of Steve and gave him an unbelievable desire to play the guitar and drums. After a few years, worship and music became a passion for Steve, and he developed a renewed sense of who Jesus is. Steve served as worship leader at Restored Church, a church plant in Windsor, before coming to Calvary.

Lori grew up in a Los Angeles suburb in Southern California. While she and her family claimed to be Christians, they rarely attended church and never clearly heard the gospel message of salvation. During high school Lori was invited to attend a Campus Crusade for Christ (Cru) fellowship at a peer’s home. She was impacted by the young adult leader’s love, and dedication to Christ and the youth. It was then she learned the true gospel, and accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior. By invitation of the Cru leaders, Lori began attending Calvary Chapel (West Covina).
Lori earned her Associate of Arts Degree at Mount San Antonio College in Walnut, CA. She went on to work secretarial jobs and attended Calvary Chapel Bible College. During her attendance at Bible College, she was called by the Lord to live in Israel for a short time. Living there brought a new understanding and life to the Word of God. It was also there that Lori grew into an even deeper relationship with Jesus, trusting that He is her sole provider.After returning home to California, Lori met her husband, Tony, while serving at Calvary Chapel Mexico Orphanage Outreach Ministry. They were married in 1990 and have raised five children.

Bob grew up right here in Windsor, Colorado with his parents, two brothers and a sister. Bob joined the US Navy right out of high school. He made it a career, and retired after 22 years of service.

He has a BS in Work Education Development from Southern Illinois University, and a MA in Christian Studies with a focus on Leadership from Grand Canyon University.
Bob grew up in the church, and while knowing the gospel at early age, he didn’t really take it seriously. A visit to the mailbox in February, 2002 helped to change his Christian walk: he received an invitation to attend a new church in Folsom, CA. Bob went that Sunday, and after several months of attendance, rededicated his life to Jesus. It was here that Bob met his wife Joymay at the church’s singles group. They married in April 2004, and during the next several years led a Bible study in their home. At the end of 2010 Bob and Joymay moved to Windsor, Bob’s boyhood home.
