On November 29, 1975, 3 years after accepting Jesus Christ, Raul Ries was ordained by Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa and his small home Bible study grew into the Fox Theater, then to Calvary Chapel West Covina and eventually into Calvary Chapel Golden Springs in Diamond Bar, California in 1993.

Although already ordained, Ries desired to study God’s Word more in-depth so he attended APU where he received his Master of Ministry, a Master of Divinity and a Master of Arts in Religion between 1976 and 1990. He went on to Fuller Theological Seminary to receive his Doctorate of Ministry in 1992.

Ries believed that he would teach and preach his entire life. However, his ability to serve the Lord almost came to an end in February, 2007. At his Wednesday evening service, Raul knew something was wrong physically but what lay ahead was unexpected.

Raul experienced flashbacks for the first time since the Vietnam War.

He knew, rationally, that he was in his home but the fears of war came rushing back. He lay prostrate in his home, praying and praising the Lord as tears ran down his face. He and his wife, Sharon, thought their time in ministry was over.

The flashbacks grew more frequent and more intense. After testing, he was diagnosed with seizures that affect the five senses.

His family, the body of Christ and Pastor Chuck Smith prayed for him and he felt the Holy Spirit heal him. He has not experienced another flashback.

Today, more than 35 years after his miraculous conversion, Ries is heard internationally on more than 350 radio stations and translators on his daily syndicated radio program, Somebody Loves You and is the evangelist for the Somebody Loves You Crusades.


Pastor Fernando Ortiz was born in Tacoma, Washington and before settling in Colorado he lived all over including Germany and Korea! He grew up going to church in Albuquerque, New Mexico and received Jesus as his Savior in Jr. High.

Fernando attended Calvary Chapel Bible College in Murrieta California, and then completed a Pastoral Internship at Calvary of Albuquerque, under Pastor Skip Heitzig. After that, he moved to Calvary Chapel Rio Rancho in New Mexico where he served as the youth pastor for three years. Following this the Lord called him to Denver to serve as an associate pastor at Calvary South Denver for six years. And then, in 2009, Mile High Calvary began as a small Bible study and has grown into a thriving fellowship today in Highlands Ranch, Colorado.

Fernando’s heart is to communicate the gospel to all of Denver and see people come to know Jesus as their Lord. He and his wife Carol have been married 10 years and have three children.

Philippians 3:10 “That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death…”


Pastor Eric Cartier believes the Lord’s house should be one of prayer and that the Bible should be taught verse-by-verse. His desire is to lead by example, to be a disciple, to make disciples, and to share God’s loving kindness with others.

Born and raised in Grants Pass, Oregon, Eric attended Applegate Christian Fellowship and came to know the Lord 28 years ago. Through teachings at Applegate and Calvary Bible College, God began to equip him for a life of ministry.

In March 2000, he accepted a permanent position with Rocky Mountain Calvary in Colorado Springs, Colorado that grew into overseeing and ministering to both teenagers and young adults. After five years of service, he accepted the position of senior pastor.

Eric is devoted to his beautiful wife of more than 10 years, Amber, and their three daughters. When he isn’t spending time with his family and serving the fellowship, he likes to hike, bike, snowboard, and camp – anything outdoors. Eric’s encouragement to new believers? “Commit to being in the Word and prayer.”

Philippians 1:6

“Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.”


Al was born in Panama City, Florida in 1955. His father was a career soldier, so the family traveled extensively. In 1973, when Al was seventeen years old, the family returned from a tour in Germany and settled in Colorado Springs. Soon after, Al realized God’s call on his life and began serving in the music ministry as a bass guitarist with a Christian band called, “The Rays of Light.” It was during this time that Al met Norma, and they were married on July 19, 1975.

Al attended Nazarene Bible College in Colorado Springs, graduating in 1977 with a degree in Biblical Studies. Several years later he visited Calvary Chapel, which had opened across the street from where he worked. After attending one service, he was hooked, rejoicing to be taught the Word of God. He couldn’t get enough, and became involved in the worship band at Calvary Chapel, as well as performing with a local contemporary Christian band. In 1980, the Lord granted Al the privilege of becoming a full-time staff member with Calvary Chapel of Colorado Springs, where he conducted Friday evening outreach concerts along with other pastoral duties assigned to him. In 1991 Al and his family moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico, and two years later he joined the staff of Calvary Chapel Albuquerque as an assistant pastor and co-worship leader.

In the spring of 1997 the Lord called Al and his family back to Colorado Springs to pastor Calvary Worship Center. Although this was a difficult decision, they knew the Lord was leading them and they have seen and experienced God’s awesome faithfulness since returning to Colorado Springs, where the fellowship has grown along with their faith. In 2006, Al earned his Master’s degree from Trinity Southwest University in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Al and Norma are the proud parents of three children, Renee, Nathan and Reggie, as well as proud grandparents. They covet your prayers for their family and ministry as they endeavor to live a life pleasing to the Father.


Pastor Ed Taylor grew up in Southern California. Having responded to the gospel in 1991 at Calvary Chapel Downey, he spent eight years learning, growing, and serving there. In July of 1999, sensing the call of God, Ed and his family moved to the Denver area hoping to be used by God. In December 1999, Calvary Church began Sunday services in Aurora, and today it impacts the community for Jesus in wonderful ways.


Pastor Ed's heart is to be transparent from the pulpit for he truly desires that everyone, from all walks of life, will embrace Jesus and grow in His grace. Ed and his wife, Marie, have been married for over 27 years and have three children – of whom their elder son, Eddie, went to be with the Lord in 2013. Ed and Marie also have a precious grandson, Eddie’s son, Levi.

Ed is the author of the book "Ordinary Servant," the host of the Lead2Serve Podcast, and the Bible Teacher of Abounding Grace, a national radio broadcast.

Pastor Brian Brodersen grew up in Southern California. He became a Christian at age 22 and began attending Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, pastored by Chuck Smith. He met his wife, Cheryl, the youngest daughter of Pastor Chuck and Kay Smith, at a Bible study in Huntington Harbor. They were married on May 23, 1980, and have four grown children, five grandsons, and one granddaughter.


Brian served in youth ministry and taught Bible studies. Then in 1983, he and Cheryl moved to Vista, California, where he assumed the pastorate of Calvary Chapel Vista. During those years, he began traveling overseas, initially to Yugoslavia and Hungary, and this led to Calvary Chapel’s outreach to Eastern Europe. Many young men and women were sent out from California in those early days of ministry as pastors and missionaries, and currently there are numerous churches, Bible colleges, and retreat centers all over Western and Eastern Europe.


In 1996, the Brodersen family moved to London, England, to plant Calvary Chapel Westminster. The church began small, but God blessed the ministry, and thankfully, there are now dozens of affiliated Calvary Chapel churches throughout Great Britain.


In the year 2000, at the request of Pastor Chuck, the family returned to California to transition into the pastorate of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa. Brian began ministering alongside Pastor Chuck, as well as traveling and teaching at many conferences both nationally and internationally. Pastor Brian was elected to serve as senior pastor in October 2013.


Brian is known for his clear and challenging exposition of the Scriptures and can be heard daily on his Bible-teaching program, Back to Basics.


As a pastor, church planter and missionary, Pastor Nick has a heart for the global mission of God through the Church.

Nick grew up in Denver, and came to know the Lord as a teenager. After finishing school, Nick spent 10 years as a missionary in Eastern Europe, first working with refugees and then church planting and pastoring churches in Hungary with Calvary Chapel. The churches Nick planted in the cities of Eger and Heves are now led by local leaders who were raised up through that ministry.

10 years later, the Lord led Nick and his family back to Colorado to be a part of the work that God is doing through White Fields Community Church in Longmont and beyond. Nick’s desire is to train and send people on God’s mission into His mission field: all the world, which He loves and for whom He gave His Son, Jesus.


Born in the steel town of Gary, Indiana, Tony, along with his older brother and sister, was raised by loving parents who instilled the ethics of hard work and moral character. As a youngster, he dutifully attended weekly church services, yet had no understanding of what it meant to have a relationship with Jesus Christ.

He went to church on Sundays, but lived life “his own way” Monday through Saturday. Growing up, not only was Tony an exceptional athlete but he also excelled academically. Because of his God-given ability, after graduation, Tony was offered an academic scholarship to Indiana State University and a baseball scholarship to Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. With both of these great opportunities available, Tony contemplated which scholarship he would choose. He chose the academic route and attended Indiana State. Though he didn’t know it at the time, Tony’s decision would change the course of his life forever!

After his first year in college, Tony decided to marry his high school sweetheart, Jenise, and join the United States Marine Corps. After boot camp, instead of starting a life with his new bride, Tony received military orders to be stationed in Okinawa, Japan. Going to this foreign land was more than an overseas adventure because it was here that he made a life-changing God commitment. He thrived in this newfound relationship and began learning about the Bible. It was in Okinawa that the Lord revealed to Tony that one day he would become a pastor.

When Tony returned to the states, he continued in his walk with the Lord and became an assistant pastor with a local church. Still in the Marine Corps and stationed at Camp Pendleton, in San Mateo, Tony had a 70 mile round trip commute. He would use this time to learn more about the Bible by tuning in to Calvary Chapel’s radio station, KWAVE. Over time, Tony grew increasingly interested in the “new” teaching style of Calvary Chapel and began attending Calvary Chapel Vista.

When Tony’s enlistment in the Marine Corps ended, he was asked by Pastor Brian Brodersen to join his pastoral staff. After a few years at Calvary Chapel Vista, Tony began thinking about the idea of pastoring a church. But where would it be? Only God would know!
