Gennarino DeStefano Pastor of Discipleship & Development

Gennarino DeStefano

Pastor of Discipleship & Development

Affectionately known as “Pastor G,” Gennarino DeStefano was born in Brooklyn, New York. After graduating high school in 1975, he spent the next 15 years developing his creativity and gifting in the restaurant business, during which time he attended the New York Restaurant Culinary School.

In 1989, Gennarino met Jesus and was born again at Calvary Chapel Ft. Lauderdale in Florida. In the following year, he met and married his wife, Margaret, and became part of staff at the church as a new believer. In 1995, he was ordained as an associate pastor at CCFTL. Over his 15 years in full-time ministry, he had the privilege of serving at one of the fastest growing mega churches in the Country. From pastoral care to leadership recruiting and development, his ministry career provided a unique education and helped develop a skill set that he strives to use wherever God places him.

Although he has been privileged to work with thousands of people through the years, he considers his greatest contribution to be the time spent personally training several young men who lived with him and his wife in their home, and who have now moved into full-time ministry and enjoy successful marriages.

In 2012, God called them and their family to Vancouver to become a part of the Crossroads family.

Stuart Smith

Pastor of LoveNOW/Missions

I’ve had the pleasure of traveling to beautiful places around the world, but I am blessed to call the Pacific Northwest home.

My wife and I are native Oregonians and were High School sweethearts. We have an amazing and hilarious son and a beautiful and energetic daughter. We enjoy our family morning devotions, traveling and spending time in the outdoors.

I had the privileged to serve as youth Pastor at Calvary Chapel Portland for nearly ten years. In 2014 the Lord called my family to sell all that we owned and move to Hungary to attend Calvary Chapel Bible College Europe. As I completed the Bachelor program I ministered to the Nigerian refugee population in Northern Italy for seven months.

Jesus went to radical lengths to save me, it’s a small sacrifice to faithfully serve Him. I hope that I can equip you to fulfill your calling in doing the ministry of reconciliation. (Ephesians 4:11-12; 2 Corinthians 5:18)

Luke was born in Salem, OR and graduated with an Accounting degree from George Fox University. His wife, Jordan, was the first person he met at George Fox. They got married in 2009 and Luke says it’s the best decision he’s made in his life other then choosing to follow Jesus. Outside of spending time with Jordan and overseeing the Crossroads Operations team, Luke has been playing piano and singing since he was 8 and he loves leading the church in worship. He feels blessed to have found a church home where he can use both his administrative and musical gifts to serve our King.
