  • Errin Mulberry – Lead Pastor/Elder

    I attended Cedarville University where I studied communications and Bible, and am pursuing my Masters in Ministry at Capital Seminary.  I have been serving in full-time ministry since 2001, most recently as an associate pastor at a church in Philadelphia.  I enjoy preaching, teaching, discipling, and counseling, and am excited to see how God will continue to use me for His glory.   My wife, Jennifer, and I have 4 children.  I love the Lord, my family, and the Philadelphia Eagles.  I enjoy riding motorcycles, peanut M & M’s, and churros from Taco Johns.

  • Aaron Crider – Student Ministry Pastor

    I answered the call to Calvary Baptist Church after serving in a church in western Pennsylvania for nearly a decade. I attained a B.A. degree in Communications Studies and Christian Education from Westminster College in 2015.  My wife, Annaliese, and I were married in 2015 and were blessed with our daughter, Roselyn, in 2016. Together we enjoy Legos, cooking, and spending time outdoors doing whatever we can.   I love relationships and getting to know people and their stories. It is also this empathy and passion for relationship that fuel my drive in ministry. I am thankful to be here and look forward to many years as the student pastor.

  • Josiah Croom – Worship Coordinator

    I grew up in a small church near Fairmont, Minnesota.  My family instilled in me a deep desire to continually be serving in church. Music has been a major part of my life as long as I can remember. God eventually took me to Rockford, Illinois where I attended City First Leadership College to develop my skills in the worship world. I have a passion for setting an environment for people to encounter Jesus, and am so excited to do that here! I love quiet spaces, coffee, and a good burger.
