The Kelly, Frisby, and Brownmiller families all deeply appreciate the prayers, visits, messages, and continued concern for Sis. Carol. She is maintaining vitality by way of life support at Aurora medical center as of the writing of this message. Please continue to send your prayers. More family members are traveling from afar and convening in Denver tonight. This is a bittersweet occasion for God’s people, as we all know! We know that heaven is calling but the prospects of earth’s loss are monumental for those who know Sis. Carol Kelly, always the life of the party! Who can blame heaven for seeking out such a precious soul to gladden every heart on the other side?
Senior Pastor Don Haymon II began his journey as a minister when he was raised in the home of the founder of Calvary Apostolic Church—his father. In 1986 he concluded a four-year internship under his father as associate pastor. It was at that time that he received his ordination certificate as a minister of the gospel. He married LaRonda Ellard, in 1992. He earned a bachelor of arts in Communication from the University of Denver the same year. In 1997, Don became senior pastor. In 2013 he graduated with a Master of Arts degree in Christian Leadership from Hope International University. Today, he is the passionate shepherd of Calvary Apostolic Church of Denver, guided by a compelling and true call of God. For those in his pastoral care, he seeks personal development and spiritual growth as a priority. His preaching and teaching has taken him around the world to at least 10 countries. Under his leadership, he has founded six churches in Burma. The challenge of communicating the Acts 2:38 gospel worldwide remains his heartbeat as well as the constant growth pattern of the local church in Denver. He and LaRonda are the parents of three grown children. They reside in Castle Rock, CO.
