  • Steve Switzer - Lead Pastor   

    My story begins on a small farm in a little town outside of Wichita, KS. I grew up in and around Wichita until leaving for Baptist Bible College in Springfield, MO in the fall of 1982. It was there in Missouri that I finished my undergraduate studies, and I also met the love of my life, Michelle (Shelley), a midwest farm girl from Palmer, IL. In June of 1986, six months after we were married we set out together on this journey of ministry. The Lord has allowed us to discover many new and interesting places and meet many wonderful people in California, Texas and New York. Along the way, we have also been blessed with three wonderful children – Steffan, Stephen, and Micaela. After 11 years of pastoring in Long Island, New York, the Lord orchestrated the events of our lives to bring us here to Calvary. I often marvel at the amazing plan of God that has led us to the place that we are today, and I am looking forward to His continuing leadership.

  • Carlos Campos - Student Pastor        

    I was born in Antigua, Guatemala and later moved to Queens, New York with my mother in 1993. So I'm a New Yorker at heart, but definitely enjoying life here in Illinois. God impacted my life during my teen years, where He saved me, taught me, matured me, and called me. I surrendered to ministry during the summer before my junior year of high school. God used so many people to influence me during my teen years, and I want to have that same godly influence on others. The Lord has allowed me to find my better half, Steffan, and has allowed us to minister here at Calvary. We are currently working with the teens (11Six Student Ministries), and we're loving every second of it. Our prayer is that God allows us to make a godly impact on the lives of the teens in Central Illinois.

  • Chris Hallam - Worship Leader  

    I was born and raised a pastor’s kid in the suburbs of Chicago. I became a Christ follower early in life. I developed a passion for music at the age of 10 when I began playing drums for my church. I attended Greenville College where I majored in Music Business and met my beautiful wife, Faith. I felt the call to ministry during my junior year of college and began pursuing worship ministry.

  • Dollie Brown - Office Administrator  

    I grew up at Calvary and met God here and experienced His saving grace at the age of nine. I met my husband Kevin in youth group and we were married at Calvary. After spending 6 years away from the area, when Kevin was in the US Army, we returned and started serving in the kid’s ministry. God has lead me one step at a time from a volunteer capacity in many different ministries to being on staff. I am grateful that God has chosen to use me and grow me through the years. I know that He isn’t finished with me yet and look forward to whatever is next in His plan for my life.
