Pastor Joe & Barbara Reul
Prayer, the first and last word in my bio, through which I came to know my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ over 20 years ago at this fellowship which was Calvary Chapel Sunrise at the time.
Born and raised in Bronx, NY and served in the U.S. Army from 1966 to 1968 during the Vietnam War. I am a die-hard Pittsburgh Steelers fan and love to sing praise. I moved to Florida with my family in ’79 and this has been our home ever since. With 5 children, and 12 grandchildren which we love dearly, the Lord has blessed me with an amazing and wonderfully loving wife, Barbara who currently holds the “Best Wife in the World” title!
Since 1990, I’ve served the Lord and have been involved in almost every ministry. In 2003 I was ordained Associate Pastor of Calvary Chapel Lake Worth, and have been blessed to have great teachers who shared the word, their wisdom and love. I became Senior Pastor in December 2011 and I strongly believe that Jesus Christ is the head of our ministry and our direction comes by and through the Holy Spirit and our continued commitment to Prayer!
Pastor Will & Kristan Torres
Pastor Will Torres has a passion for God’s word coupled with a love for God’s people. Pastor Will was ordained as a pastor at Calvary Chapel in Coral Springs in 2011 under the leadership of Senior Pastor Joe Reul.
Pastor Will is originally from Brooklyn, New York. He is a die hard Mets and NY Giants fan. He loves spending time with his family, and his beautiful wife Kristan.
He is the youngest of seven children, and was raised knowing the Lord from a young age. Will knew he had a calling on his life as a teenager and that he would one day be a pastor. He made a bold move of faith in 2001 when he left New York, to move to Florida, to seek out the Lords will for his Life, he came down with 200 dollars and a prayer, and God opened up tremendous doors for him. He connected with a church in Sunrise, and became a student of the word, after two years he was serving in the youth ministry and a few years after that he was leading that very ministry, God was unveiling his plan and placing a passion to reach the lost youth of this generation.
In 2004, he felt called to join Calvary Chapel Coral Springs, and became the youth overseer soon thereafter. For the past 6 years he has been serving faithfully along side his wife and the great team of youth leaders. In June of 2011 Pastor Joe ordained him as the associate Pastor of the church and he has been serving and teaching the Wednesday night bible study.
His heart is still to see this generation reached but now through the equipping of others through discipleship and one on one interactions so that people can find their God given abilities to further the Kingdom and bring God the Glory!
