Pastor Tim Jordan

Elder, Senior Pastor

Tim has been the Senior Pastor at Calvary since 1986. Prior to that, he served as an assistant pastor at Calvary for ten years. He has been at Calvary since the age of one when his dad, Dr. E. R. Jordan, became the first full-time pastor of the church. Tim trusted Christ as his Savior as a preschool child. Tim is married to his wife, Marilyn, and they have five adult children—Stephanie, Sarah, Tim Jr., Sharon, and Stephen. Besides serving in ministry and spending time with his family, Tim’s primary hobby and passion is hunting. A particularly meaningful text of Scripture to Tim is Psalm 119:162—"I rejoice at your word as one that finds great spoil." Tim’s comment on this verse is—“Whether the private devotional reading or the in-depth study of His Word for teaching and preaching, His Word remains a powerful delight to my heart.”

Pastor Troy Gahman

Elder, Associate Pastor

Troy served as the youth pastor at Calvary for 11 years beginning in 1993. Since 2004, he has served as an associate pastor, focusing on Adult Ministries and Missions. He came to Calvary as a baby and has been part of the church most of his life. Troy has been married to his wife, Danielle, since 1993 and has four children—Derek, Carissa, Drew, and Grant.

The book of Philippians as a whole is a portion of the Bible that has been and continues to be especially important and transformational in his life. The challenge of the book to “make Christ your life and the gospel your passion” is a truth that he desires to shape his life, his family, and his ministry. "I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord" (Phil. 3:10).

In Kevin’s words: “This Scripture continually fills my soul, realizing that God reaches down, by grace to save me. I can never earn my way to reach God or get to heaven.

Lay Elder

Mike works as a CFO at a local company and serves at Calvary in a variety of areas—ABF, Community Groups, music—in addition to serving as an Elder. Mike came to Calvary in 2008 after moving into the area from Texas. The Lord has used the ministry of Calvary to mature his faith and increase his knowledge of Him and His Word. Mike trusted Christ as his Savior at the age of 12 years old. He is married to Andrea, and they have three children—Jared, Brett and Aimee. Mike enjoys the outdoors—camping, fishing, hiking, playing golf—and doing any of those things with his boys makes them even better. He also loves fantasy football and is fascinated by statistics and analytics. God used Matthew 6:19-21 to change Mike’s heart about being a cheerful giver and prepare his and Andrea’s heart for the international adoption that they are pursuing. He also clings to Galatians 2:20— "I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me." Reflecting on this text, Mike says... “I am not a slave to my sinful flesh anymore—Christ’s power is inside of me through the Holy Spirit to kill those desires. And when I fail, I can remember that He gave Himself as a substitute so that I’m no longer condemned.”

John Moore

Lay Elder

John and his wife, Maelynn, and their two children, Maegan and Bobby, came to Calvary in 2006 from Lake Orion, Michigan. John works as a mechanical/process engineer in Delaware. John came to faith in Christ at the age of 26 after hearing the gospel from his friend Maelynn, who became his wife a year later.

John has served as an usher and deacon at Calvary and now joyfully teaches the Sojourner Adult Bible Fellowship class along with serving as an Elder. John sites Colossians 1:21-23 as a particularly meaningful text of Scripture: "And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him, if indeed you continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard" . . . Reflecting on this text, John says: “The only proper response from redeemed sinners like us is unending gratitude and worship for the richness of grace that our Savior freely poured out. His blood can make the foulest clean, His blood availed for me!”
