Meet our Pastors, Elders, Overseers, Interns, and Board Members in the Ministry.





Kevin edwards

Senior Pastor


Pastor Kevin has served as senior pastor of Calvary Chapel Clayton since it first began in 2008. Prior to the establishing of this fellowship, Kevin served as an elder at Calvary Chapel Cary, North Carolina. While Kevin served there in various capacities including teaching in the children's ministry, he found the joy of his life: simply serving Jesus Christ.


Calvary Chapel of Clayton began as a Thursday night Bible study on February 21, 2008, with a strong emphasis on teaching God’s Word verse by verse. The church has grown to minister to approximately 400 people weekly with a variety of outreaches and ministries.


Pastor Kevin currently teaches Sunday morning services along with an evening service on Wednesday. His commitment to discipling other men and leaders and continuing to lead the congregation in missions and outreach is having a powerful impact on the lives of many.


In more than 10 years of ministry, Kevin and his wife Lisa have seen their family grow strong and united in serving the Lord. The desire of Kevin’s heart is to see his congregation grow spiritually while reaching the town of Clayton, our nation, and our world, that people may be transformed by the Good News of Jesus Christ. Kevin continues to heed God's call by passionately studying His Word, prayerfully seeking the Lord’s direction for His church, and vigorously pouring love into the lives of the people God leads his way – persevering until He comes!

Kids Director

Creesha is a proud wife and mother of two children. She gave her life to Jesus Christ in 1996 at the age of 19, where she began her journey walking with the Lord. She has learned many things throughout her walk with Jesus. She believes the Lord has given her everything she needs in her life to serve Him effectively. Loving and serving people has always been her passion - specifically, children and special needs. She is grateful that the Lord has given her opportunities to pour into children and special needs throughout her life and continues to do so in Calvary Kids at Calvary Chapel Clayton. She's humbled, honored, and privileged to point His beautiful little ones to Him. Her prayer is always that God will be glorified in all that she does.

Her favorite Bible verse is - "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ." - Ephesians 1:3


susan vaughn

Administrative Assistant

Hi! My name is Susie. Jesus saved me when I was in my early thirties. Before I was born again, I was living a life that cycled in and out of sin based on decisions that I made in the flesh. I was literally in darkness. Now, He is the Light that guides me through this life and I rely on Him each day. He is my Savior and my Lord. My heart's desire is to live my life in a way that pleases Him and glorifies Him. My favorite Scripture is Isaiah 26:3-4 which reads, "You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, 
Because he trusts in You. Trust in the Lord forever, For in YAH, the Lord, is everlasting strength." My family and I attend and serve together here at Calvary Chapel Clayton. I work in the church office as bookkeeper and administrative assistant to Pastor Kevin.
