shared leadership is less like an orchestra and more like a jazz banD.

Rev. Tim Emmett-Rardin
Pastor Tim is thrilled to serve as Calvary's pastor (again) - as a long-time member of the congregation, and having previously served as interim pastor (January-June 2020), community engagement pastor (July 2018-December 2019), and pastoral associate while in seminary (2003-2004).
He received his M.Div from Drew University Theological School, with an emphasis on social justice, urban ministry and interfaith engagement.
Greg has been Calvary's music director since 1996.
He's an accomplished bandleader, composer/arranger and multi-instrumentalist (all saxophones, reeds, and keyboards), with a wealth of experience in music performance and education.
He's the founding director of The Big Push, a 15-piece big band fusing jazz with the rhythmic influences of hip-hop
beats, and an original member of Breakwater, a Philadelphia-based rhythm and blues group which has been around since 1976.
Greg has composed or arranged music for church choirs, jazz enembles, concert bands, chamber groups, and symphonic orchestras. When he's not playing music, you can find him working at The Workshop School as science and technology instructor, teaching Lego robotics as a volunteer with students at Harrington Elementary School, or helping to get solar panels installed anywhere he can (including Calvary!).
