Lead Pastor – Rich Alverdes Jr.

Rich, and his wife Julie, have been married over ten years now. They have three fantastic kids, Dixon (age 8), Hudson (Age 6) and their daughter Emily (age 5). Rich graduated from the Calvary Chapel Bible College in Seattle back in 2008, and served in Ministry with another Calvary Affiliated church until 2012. After that time, he and his wife went back to their home church, Calvary Fellowship in Mountlake Terrace, where Rich has led a men’s group, taught in Junior High and at the Bible College, and also served as an Elder. In addition to pastoring Calvary Snohomish, Rich works full time at Kenmore Camera.

The Elders (Left to Right):

Peter Steinhagen, Rich Alverdes Sr, Ed Magiba

These men not only fit the qualifications of an elder found in 1st Timothy and Titus, but it can be easily said that between them, they have at least 5o years of serving the Lord. From leading Men’s groups, to teaching Home Fellowships, serving others with gifts of hospitality, pastoring and even serving as a chaplain wth the Snohomish County Fire Department. Their prayers, guidance, wisdom and discernment are a great encouragement to our church.
