Pastor Al Rubio

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.
