Pastor Ruben Tirado and his wife Lydia serve as the directors of Worship and Evangelism as well as Cultural Renewal in Calvary City Church. Pastor Ruben began to exert his position as Associate Pastor since February 2005.
When pastor Tirado and his wife arrived at CCC they began to make the necessary changes to strengthen the ministry and in the course of the years the Lord has provided the necessary resources to achieve the quality of music with which we worship today. This has been achieved in all the services including the different campuses that exist today. Today the ministry has over one hundred people including musicians, choir and background singers who perform their functions in the different services.
Pastor Ruben was born and raised in Puerto Rico. There he began his studies at the Conservatory of Music of Puerto Rico where he studied for three years and then moved to the United States and acquired a BA in Music Education with Concentration in Piano from Temple University in Philadephia. For 10 years he taught music in the elementary school system in Camden NJ. Then he felt God's calling to work in full-time ministry, which leads him to study in the Baptist Seminary in Philadephia, where he studied for two years. And since the beginning of 1997 God has given him the opportunity to work as a full time Worship Minister, first in Miami and now in CCC. The Worship Ministries, which include music, dance and drama, have organized musicals and illustrated sermons on which many souls have given their lives to Jesus.
