Elders

Troy Warner (Senior Pastor)

Joe Pamer & wife Jeanne
We have been blessed to be a part of Calvary Chapel Lynchburg from the beginning in 1994. What an awesome privilege it has been to watch the Lord’s work in growing the church from a few families to where we are now! I served the body here as an Assistant Pastor for a number of years and count it a blessing to be used by the Lord to serve His people. Jeanne is involved in the Women’s Ministry, as well as counseling ladies when needed. We have three amazing sons, who God has blessed with various talents, and two beautiful daughters-in-law. We stand in awe of the faithfulness and goodness of God to our family and to the church here at Calvary.

Guy Warner & wife Zell
My wife Zell and I moved to Lynchburg a number of years ago to be near our son & his family. You know them as Pastor Troy, Rebecca and their family! Recently, the Lord led our other child, Leeann and her two daughters, along with our great-granddaughter to move to Virginia as well. While I was a businessperson for 30+ years, I also served the Lord in ministering as a lay pastor to men and college/career young adults. During my time here, I have served as a Chaplain in the jail system here in Lynchburg and as a participant in the prison correspondence ministry. Currently I am serving as the Men’s Ministry leader. Before moving to Lynchburg, I was ordained by Pastor Chuck Smith and trained counselors for outreach events. I was honored to begin the discipleship program at Costa Mesa, which is still very productive. My passion is to continue to disciple men and see their walk with the Lord grow.

Mark Harris & wife Beth
My wife and I have been attending Calvary Chapel Lynchburg since 2003. She serves in the nursery ministry here, and I head up the benevolence ministry. Serving in this gives me the opportunity to help people, both in the short-term if we can help meet a legitimate current need, and in the long-term by helping people figure out ways to be good stewards of what God has given them, to trust Him to meet their needs (Philippians 4:19), and to value the things that are truly valuable: the things of the Lord (Matthew 6:21).

Jeremy Grafman & wife Angie
26 years ago we met the Lord, were radically transformed and immediately met each other at Calvary Chapel of the Finger Lakes. Because of Jesus's deep and powerful work in our own lives, Angie and I have always held a great love for the ministry of the local body of Christ. We have treasured the blessing of home fellowships and continue to grow and rejoice in the clear, consistent teaching of His Word. I served as an elder and Assistant Pastor with Calvary Chapel Rio Rancho in New Mexico and over the last 6 years I have had the privilege of serving and ministering in Israel and across the Middle East. We have four wonderful boys and a beautiful daughter-in-law.
