Adult Ministries & Leaders

Deeply Rooted Motherhood -
Michelle Gomez

Motherhood can be hard. It can be lonely. And it can be a little extra difficult these days given the noise that surrounds us from the postmodern culture we live in. God’s word tells us that being rooted in Christ will keep us grounded. Being established in our faith will allow us to filter out the noise and lies that surround us and live in truth. It is the desire of the Deeply Rooted Motherhood ministry to lead mamas, of all ages and walks of life, to the refreshing truth of God’s word  encouraging women to seek Christ and establish their faith in Him. Our children are the next generation of the church and our spiritual walk as mothers is so crucial; after all, we cannot pass on what we don’t possess.

Greeter's Ministry- Karen Herrera

Christ calls us to love God and to love others, and that is the heart of those who greet visitors and returning members of the body, into God's house.  Whether it's by providing a weekly bulletin, introducing you to a ministry leader, or showing you where to sign up for an upcoming activity, by sharing the love of Christ with those who enter the sanctuary, they hope to bring an uplifting experience to everyone who comes to meet with God.

Marriage Ministry - Ruben & Karen Herrera

Paul writes to the body in Ephesus that we should live in humility and gentleness... [being] eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.  Our marriage ministry offers opportunities of learning and doing, for married couples, through Bible studies, activities, excursions and retreats.  It is our desire to help marriages strengthen and grow, in and through Christ, by the power of His Holy Spirit.

Meals Ministry - Vicky Velazquez

The Meals Ministry strives to be a helping hand to the body in times of need. We provide meals for those who have suffered illness, have undergone surgery, pregnancy, and other types of circumstances which makes preparing meals for yourself or your family difficult. We purchase, prepare and deliver the meal to your home.  We are here to serve the Lord by serving people.  For more information, please speak with the ministry leader.

Men's Ministry - Pastor Michael Torres

It is the desire of the Calvary Chapel Men's Ministries to equip the men of Calvary Chapel with God's Word so they can make a godly impact in their homes, in their workplaces, and in their schools. Through our bi-monthly men’s fellowships, small group meetings, activities and retreats you'll receive the instruction, encouragement, accountability, and fellowship you need to accomplish these goals.  The Men's Ministry meets every other Tuesday @ 7:00 p.m. Purchase your paperback book or Kindle ebook on

Mission's Ministry - Into The Light Board

Christ's Great Commission guides us in our pursuit to share the Gospel message beyond the pulpit, supporting missionary work in Okinawa, Japan; 20+ Calvary Chapel pastors in Cuba, as well as at orphanages in Mexicali & Tecate, Mexico.  For more information on how you can support missionary efforts, speak with Pastor Michael or Pastor Tony.

Prayer & Followup Ministry - Ruben Herrera

In Isaiah, God tells us that His house shall be a house of prayer and as such, we have made it our goal to make prayer available during every Worship Service.

Tech Ministry - Albert Vershum

Usher's Ministry - Estevan Mayon

Our Ushers Ministry makes itself available to visitors and the body in a variety of ways.  From assistance with parking, to greeting visitors, to helping someone find a seat, and more!  The Ushers Ministry dedicates its skills and abilities to maintain and improve the experience of those who come to hear God's word.

Women's Ministry - Novella Torres & Melissa Lucena

The heart of the Calvary Chapel Women’s Ministry is to reach women, both inside and outside of the church, with the love of Christ. We hope to help them to apply the Word of God to their lives and to see them grow in their walk with the Lord. We offer a variety of opportunities for women to gather and fellowship around the Word of God such as retreats, outings, and other activities, with the goal of strengthening their faith so they can be mature and effective women in every area of their lives. The Women's Ministry meets every other Thursday at 9:30 a.m. @ ITL & 7:00 p.m. @ a home.

Worship Ministry - Lito Lucena

The Psalmist tells us in chapter 33 to sing new songs, play on stringed instruments and lift our voices to our God.  The heart of the Worship Ministry is to lead the body in upholding this command, while preparing each heart, in-person, and online, to receive God's Word.
