Our Pastors


Pastor bruce cole

Pastor Bruce has served as a senior pastor of churches in Illinois and North Carolina since 1998. He's a native New Yorker who worked as program director and on-air host for radio stations around the country before entering seminary (The Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago) in 1994, earning his Master of Divinity and being ordained in 1998. He loves biking, all kinds of music, baseball, and most importantly, his wife Maureen and their adult daughters who have all flown the coop. Bruce continues to lend his voice to radio stations when they need a fill-in as well as for commercial voiceover work around Chicago.

Pastor Kelvin (pictured above with his amazing mother) has combined a successful career in sales management with his service as a pastor both in the west and northwest suburbs of Chicago and at Calvary Baptist Church in Chicago's South Shore neighborhood – the church of his childhood. Kelvin earned a Master of Divinity from Northern Theological Seminary and is nearing completion of a Ph.D. in Counseling, Care and Theology from Trinity International University. Kelvin is still in possession of a pretty accurate jump shot, but spends the majority of his spare time devoted to his wife, Dr. Lesley Roberts, and their two children, Allison and Eric.
