Pastors & Staff

Meet the Staff.

Kevin Edwards

Senior Pastor

Pastor Kevin has served as the senior pastor of Calvary Chapel Clayton since its inception in 2008. Before this, he was an elder at Calvary Chapel Cary, where he engaged in various roles, including teaching in the children's ministry, and discovered his greatest joy in simply serving Jesus Christ.

Calvary Chapel Clayton began as a Thursday night Bible study on February 21, 2008, focusing on verse-by-verse teaching of God’s Word. It has since expanded, ministering to many through diverse outreaches and ministries.

Currently, Pastor Kevin leads Sunday morning and Wednesday evening services. His dedication to discipling and mentoring men and leaders, as well as guiding the congregation in missions and outreach, has significantly influenced many lives.

With over 15 years in ministry, Kevin's service to the Lord has deepened. His heart's desire is for his congregation's spiritual growth, reaching out to the town Clayton and beyond, to transform lives with the message of Jesus Christ. He remains committed to passionately studying God's Word, prayerfully seeking the Lord’s direction for His church, and lovingly impacting the people he encounters, all while eagerly anticipating the Lord's return.

Jeffrey Anderson II

Assisting Pastor

Jeffrey has been a part of Calvary Chapel communities from a young age. He was born again during his early teens at a Youth Retreat. He joined Calvary Chapel Clayton at its inception in 2008. In 2011, the Lord opened the door for Jeffrey to begin leading our Calvary Youth. His dedication to serving and grounding the youth group in Biblical teachings is evident in his verse-by-verse teaching during Sunday and Wednesday services. Married to Whitney, they have two children, Ezekiel and Olive. Jeffrey officially joined the staff in April 2019.

His favorite Bible verse is"Let all that you do be done with love." - 1 Corinthians 16:14

Susan Vaughn


Susie experienced a transformative moment in her early thirties when she was saved by Jesus. Prior to this, her life was marked by a cycle of sin, driven by fleshly decisions, leaving her in a state of darkness. Since then, Jesus has become the guiding light in her life, a source of daily reliance and inspiration. He holds a profound place in her life as both her Savior and Lord. Her deepest wish is to lead a life that pleases and glorifies Him. Susie officially joined the staff in July 2011.

Her favorite Bible verse is"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." - Isaiah 26:3-4

Creesha Jones

Creesha, a devoted wife and mother of two, dedicated her life to Jesus Christ in 1996 at the age of 19. This marked the start of her journey walking with the Lord. Over the years, she's gained valuable insights from her walk with Jesus and believes God has equipped her with everything necessary for effective service. Her passion lies in loving and serving, especially children and those with special needs. She cherishes the opportunities to make a difference in their lives through Calvary Kids, always aiming to lead them towards Jesus. She feels honored and privileged in this role, hoping to always glorify God through her actions as she directs the children to God. Creesha officially joined the staff in November 2021.
