Tiffany was born and raised in Northern Illinois, the youngest of five children. Her spiritual journey began at a very young age, when her mother prayed with her to accept Jesus Christ into her life. At sixteen, she rededicated her life to Christ and felt God undeniably calling her to use her one and only life to serve the Kingdom of God. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Youth Ministry from Judson University (Elgin, IL), and spent the next sixteen years in pastoral ministry as a youth pastor, worship & arts pastor, spiritual formation assistant, and lead pastor of a church plant.
Born from her passion to help people grow, she founded Breathing Space in 2006 with the mission to provide the space and tools for people to listen and respond to God through spiritual retreats and conferences. In 2008, she received a master’s degree in Global Leadership from Fuller Seminary (Pasadena, CA), after which, Tiffany began working in the nonprofit sector, where she began learning the critical skills of fund development and non-profit leadership. After several years in organizations that serve the homeless, she served as the Executive Director of The Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford. In 2018, she achieved the national certification as a Fund-Raising Executive (CFRE) and was named as one of Rockford, Illinois’ “Twenty People You Should Know.” She answered the call to be the Executive Director of Calvin Crest at the end of 2018 and started there in January of 2019. She is excited to lead Calvin Crest into a brand new chapter of ministry.

Christina has been here for over six years in various capacities. She first came to Calvin Crest seeking a place where her theology and ministry philosophy closely matched. In her time at camp, her faith has grown through interactions with guests and experiencing God's providence through times of adversity. She felt called to camp ministry when she was in high school and is grateful for the opportunity to live out that calling through Outdoor School and summer programs. She loves introducing students and campers to the great outdoors! She spends her free time hiking, traveling, and playing board games with her friends.

Keegan has witnessed substantial growth while on staff at Calvin Crest. What he loves most about living and working here at Calvin Crest is that there are four distinct seasons which he finds to be extremely similar to his walk with Christ. There are seasons of sowing, seasons of harvest, good seasons, and hard seasons. What he loves most about Calvin Crest is the community living. He enjoys riding dirt bikes, camping, campfires, fly fishing, and hiking. He and his wife, Beccy, are expecting their first child this August.
