Win the Lost, Equip the Saints, Send the Servants

Leaders

At Calvary Chapel of Fullerton we are just a little bit reluctant to be using titles.  Some of the people listed are indeed fully ordained pastors.  Some of them have  been to college, some even to seminary.  Some are high school dropouts.  Some are full time paid staff.  Many are unpaid volunteers.  Some grew up as good kids.  Some were probably not that nice growing up.  All of them have found a new life in Jesus Christ.  All of them love the Lord.  We believe God has called together a unique, wonderful team of men and women who are here to serve the Lord.
