Greetings and gratitude are in order today for the most loving and caring congregation on the planet! You are literally the hands, eyes, voice, and feet of Jesus! If I were looking for a church that cares like Jesus, hands down, it would be Calvary Apostolic Church Denver! The outpouring of love, gifts, messages and calls has been extraordinarily comforting. Most importantly, your prayers are prevailing! My beautiful wife was favored by a successful surgery yesterday. We are so thankful. Recovery is underway and we continue to covet your prayers. God willing, one more visit by the doctor and we are homeward bound! Complete return to recovery is expected to take about six weeks. Again, thank you for your deep Christian (agape!) love and concern. -Pastor Haymon
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.
