Pastor Al Rubio


Spanish Ministry, Ambassadors of Hope, Men’s Mentoring


I am a native Arizonan. I was born and raised in Chandler on November 9, 1961. At that time, Chandler was a small farming community. Now, like a lot of other surrounding small cities, it has grown considerably. My wife Beth and I, will be celebrating 26 years of marriage this year. We have 6 beautiful children and are blessed with several grandchildren. I worked as a construction worker and a warehouse manager most of my life. We now live in Queen Creek and have been attending Calvary Chapel of Queen Creek since 2005. We, soon, got involved with the children’s ministry, serving in the Sunday School and Calvary Kids Club (CKC).

In 2009, we began a Men’s Mentoring discipleship process through the Christians Mentors Network (CMN), which I am still currently overseeing. Since then, my wife also went through the Mentoring course and she is now the overseer of the Women’s Mentoring Discipleship process.

In 2011, I was asked to fill in as the Pastor of the Skyline RV Resort Park in Queen Creek. The saints there were in need of a Pastor to minister to the elderly winter residents of that Park from the months of November until April. I was blessed to fill in as the Pastor of the “Skyline Christian Fellowship” for 5 years. What a blessing that was! Because of our time there, we have made many friends, and these friendships will last a lifetime.

In November of 2015, I was honored by being ordained as a Pastor by my Pastor, Jim Remington. In January of 2016, I was asked to come on full time. Of course, this is a dream come true!

I also am blessed to be part of a new ministry here at Calvary Chapel, “the Ambassadors of Hope” (a health crisis ministry). It is truly a blessing to minister to those that need help coping with the challenges of cancer and other health crisis.

I am humbly honored to serve here at Calvary Chapel. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that God would want to use me in the ways that He has. We truly serve an Amazing God! May God bless you with more of His Grace.

Pastor Darrell Logan

Assistant Pastor, Church Administrations, Home Fellowships

I was born in Los Angeles, CA in 1978. On June 14, 1997, Donnique and I got married at a young age and are blessed to have 4 beautiful children (3 sons and 1 daughter) together. In August 1997, at the age of 18, I surrendered my life to the Lord, Jesus Christ. During my California years, I was an English teacher at the junior high school level and had the honor of serving as the Youth Pastor at a church in Compton, CA. My family and I moved to Arizona in 2007 where I, briefly, continued my teaching career at the high school level before transitioning to a university as a Teacher Education Specialist and an Academic Program Analyst for 9 years. During some of those years, I also spent time coaching youth football, teaching children at Sunday School and teaching at a home fellowship. In January 2017, I was blessed to become a member of the full-time staff at Calvary Chapel of Queen Creek where I have been fellowshipping since 2008. My desire is to glorify God and to see others grow spiritually through the Word of God and by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Claudia Remington

Women’s Ministry

I was born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1960 into a strong Catholic family full of much love. My parents were married for 40 years when the Lord took my dad home. My mom joined him close to 30 years later. We moved to Arizona as a family in 1974, and in 1978, as a senior in high school, I met Jim. We were married three years later at 21. We left the Catholic church at age 25 and have been involved with Calvary Chapels since. We have four adult children and a great bunch of grandchildren who brighten our days. There is so much more to the story: prodigal children, breast cancer and many joys etc. Through it all, the Lord has and always will remain faithful.

Karen DiGerolamo

Beyonders Ministry, Bookstore Overseer

When I look back, I see God’s hand on my life, all the blessings, His promises and that He will never leave me or forsake me. In my early family life as a child, I was introduced to the Lord at a Foursquare Gospel Church we attended. There were so many altar calls and revivals I am not sure when Jesus became my Savior. Just after entering Nursing School, I moved out of my parents’ home. As a young adult, I did not go to church. Praise the Lord for His longsuffering, His protection and His love! I got my RN, chose Pediatrics (what a blessing that was), married a young man from my High School years, started a family, attending church once a month. Then in my forties, Richard had a fatal stroke. Humbled and broken, I got plugged into a Calvary Chapel Simi Valley. Praise God His Word does not return void! It was in my mind as my conscience. I knew where I belonged. I grew in the Lord, and found contentment and peace in His Word and His promises. Five years later, I met Joe at church. God’s timing was perfect. Together we signed up to work in His administration in what ever capacity He wished for us to fulfill. We are still on our journey of sanctification, desiring to be more like Jesus. Praise God! For, His mercies endure forever!

Favorite verse:

Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

— 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

Dominic Rodgers

Security Team Overseer

I was born in Fresno, CA in 1977. My family rarely went to church while I was growing up, and I never had a relationship with God. I joined the Marine Corps when I was 17 years old, as a way to get out of my situation. It was while I was in the Marine Corps, that I met my wife. Her father is a pastor, and after a short time of dating, we got married and I got saved. We have two beautiful daughters together. We moved to Arizona in 2010, and immediately found a home at Calvary Chapel of Queen Creek. I am proud to be a part of this ministry, and look forward to serving Him in any way that I can.

Bill Strahlend

Studying Scripture 101 Course

I was born in Torrance, California (CA) in 1973. Throughout my childhood I grew up moving to many places within Southern CA. On occasion I would get introduced to the concept of G-d and His Son, Jesus. At those times, I never understood anything. It wasn’t until February 19, 1993, that I came to a saving knowledge of G-d, through Jesus, the Messiah. I have been a student of Him and His Word since then. I met my wife through a home Bible study fellowship. We married in 1996 and started a family almost immediately. We have 3 kids (2 sons and a daughter in the middle). We started our lives in CA, but moved to Arizona (AZ) in April 2004. We have been attending Calvary Chapel of Queen Creek since. I enjoy studying G-d‘s Word and helping others grow in their faith and knowledge of the L-RD.
