Peter was born in Michigan, but did most of his growing up in New England (go Pats!). He attended a Christian college in the South and attended Calvary Baptist Seminary here in Lansdale. In his 20+ years of ministry he has been a camp director, a youth pastor, a music pastor, a seminary professor, and a senior pastor. Peter married his high school sweetheart, Jenn, and they have two children, Ayla and Petra. Raising them for Christ is among the greatest privileges of his life. Peter loves music, running, CrossFit, and Patriots football (go Pats!). His passion is sharing the word and helping people. A verse that has impacted him recently is Matthew 20:25-27 "But Jesus called them to him and said, "You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. It shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be your slave."

Forrest left his business in 2017 to become the children’s pastor at Calvary. He was led to Christ by his mom on the same night she was saved. Forrest is married to his best friend and partner in ministry, Karen, and they have 5 children and a busy home. Since Forrest was saved as a kid, he has a passion to reach kids with the gospel. He has been involved in kids ministry since his teen years. He traveled as an evangelist with Neighborhood Bible Time during college, receiving kids ministry training from Charles Holmshire. He received his Master of Divinity from Calvary Baptist Seminary and has been speaking at camps, youth retreats, vacation Bible schools, and special church meetings for over 15 years. Ezekiel is his favorite book of the Bible because it is rich, full, and often misunderstood. Forrest loves basketball, smoking meat, and his Spider-man socks.

Director of Camp Calvary
Brian has served on the ministry team at Calvary since 1982. He first as the Youth Pastor and then as the full-time director of Camp Calvary since 1995.

Colossians 3:23-24 is a particularly meaningful passage of Scripture to Brian – "Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men; knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ." Brian and Jean’s desire is to glorify Him and give their all to Him in whatever and wherever He has them.
Kevin grew up in Evart, Michigan and accepted the Lord as his Savior as a 6 year old when he realized his need for Christ after a Wednesday night church service. He attended Cedarville University in Ohio where he met his wife, Julie. Kevin and his wife Julie have been attending Calvary since 2005. Since then, they have been serving in Calvary’s Children’s Ministry working in the 3’s class on Sunday mornings and with the youth on Wednesday nights. Kevin also served as a Deacon for 6 years and has been on the security and finance teams. Kevin and Julie have 4 lovely girls: Jenna, Kelli, Khloe, and Lacey. In 2005, Kevin started his own Software & Product Development Consulting company: KCTechnologies, Inc. located in Harleysville, PA. Kevin enjoys hunting, taking long road trips with his family, working on and fixing things including computers, technology, various home projects, and his old truck. James chapter 1 has always been an encouragement to Kevin, as it reminds us to remain steadfast in our faith, to be a hearer and doer of the word daily, and to encourage others to do the same. One of his life verses is Proverbs 16:9, reminding him that, “The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.” God is always in control.
Scott was born and raised in the Lansdale area. When he was 15, his family began attending Calvary Baptist Church where he heard a clear presentation of the gospel that challenged his former “head knowledge” of salvation. At the age of 17, he trusted Christ alone for his salvation and shortly afterward committed his life to full-time ministry. He attended Pillsbury Baptist Bible College, and later Calvary Baptist Theological Seminary where he received both his MDiv and Doctor of Ministry degrees. He and his wife Lynda, his high school sweetheart, followed God’s call to a church in Shannock, Rhode Island, where Scott served as pastor for 31 years. During that time, he was blessed to see many members of that small country church follow the Lord’s call to full time ministry. After leaving Shannock, he and Lynda had the opportunity to serve Christ for nearly 3 years in East Asia, training national men for ministry and participating in ex-pat church leadership. After returning to Calvary in 2015, Scott has been involved in teaching in the Adult Bible Fellowship program and the Sunday evening Back-to-the-Bible ministry. Scott and Lynda are the parents of four grown children, Lori, Karen, Amy, and Gregory, and are blessed with ten grandchildren. Scott enjoys traveling with his wife, reading historical biographies, and researching his family ancestry.

Tom's testimony coming soon!
Deacon of Facilities
My parents attended a Bible Conference at Sandy Cove in Maryland when I was around six or seven. The speaker presented the plan of salvation and said that God has children--not grandchildren. The fact that my parents were saved did not mean I was. That night I accepted Jesus as my Savior. A few years later I was baptized and joined the Church. I graduated from North Penn High School, went to LeTourneau College, and spent two years in the military (US Army). I met Erline in Church and in 1969, we were married. We have three children and ten grandchildren. Over the years I have had the privilege to serve as an usher, deacon, and seminary trustee. I am retired from the Clemens Family Corporation where I worked in various capacities. Erline and I enjoy taking two of our grandkids on vacation each year.
