Pastoral Staff

 

Mark Rodriguez

Executive Pastor

Mark is the Executive Pastor at Calvary. Prior to serving at the Church, Mark owned and operated a successful advertising company. He was also the lead singer of a Christian band for six years with whom he recorded 3 albums and played with some of the top Christian bands in the nation.

 

In 2002 Mark took a leap of faith and walked away from his business and band to follow God’s plan for his life and joined Pastor Bob as he was planting Calvary Fellowship. According to him this was one of the hardest things he’s ever done; however, he’s never been happier. Mark is married to his beautiful high school sweetheart Leilani and is the proud father of 3 awesome kids: Kaleb, Joshua and Stella.

John Solaroli

Family Pastor

John is the Family Pastor at Calvary Fellowship. He moved from Boston to Florida in 1996 to work as a volunteer for a non-for profit organization dedicated to providing a home for runaway teens. At the conclusion of his commitment, he decided to stay in South Florida to attend Calvary Chapel Bible College and pursue ministry. There he met Pastor Bob, and in 2000 was asked to assist in planting the church in Miami Lakes. He went from volunteer to staff member to pastor. John enjoys spending his free time with his beautiful wife Carolina and their children Charlotte, Gwendolen and Evan.

George Martinez

George embodies the mission of Calvary Fellowship. Calvary was the place where he was saved, baptized, discipled, and even where he met his beautiful wife Evelyn. George was previously a studio musician, recording drums and guitars on Top 40 records and touring with bands. George holds a degree in music engineering and now leads the Worship Arts Ministry at Calvary Fellowship. His greatest Joy in life is being married to Evelyn (who he always says is way out of his league) and being Jayden’s and Sarah Elizabeth’s Dad.
