Ministries of Northcrest Calvary Baptist

Pastor Ron Philpot answered the call the pastorate at Northcrest Calvary Baptist Church in June 1999.  He came from Muncie, Indiana.  His hometown is Cherokee Park, Ohio, a subdivision of New Miami, Ohio, just three miles north of Hamilton, Ohio.  Yes, Pastor Ron still claims to be a Buckeye, but he has been here so long, you would know it by looking at him.

He retired from the United States Air force in 1988.  Before coming to this area he pastored in Union City, Ohio and he managed apartments for Lutheran Social Services in Union City and Greenfield, Indiana.  These apartments were for seniors and people with physical needs.  Additionally, he managed a department in both Sears and K-mart Stores.

Since his calling at Northcrest Calvary Baptist, Pastor Ron has earned both a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree from Liberty University.  The Master’s Degree was in Pastoral Counseling and the BA was in Religious Education. 

Northcrest is a Southern Baptist Church located on the edge of two major cities, Moline and East Moline, Illinois.  Our services are posted in ministry opportunities and prayerfully we have a place of worship for everyone.  Pastor Ron is additionally involved in the Chaplain Ministry at the Genesis Hospital, Illini Campus and he is the Chaplain for Stand Down, an agency design to help homeless vets.  We are also involved in Child Evangelism Fellowship and Vacation Bible School. 

Pastor Ron and his wife Juanita met in 1970 and were married on September 3, 1970.  Juanita is the church’s Woman’s Missionary Union (WMU) leader for Northcrest Calvary Baptist.  They have two grown children; Ron Jr. and Rustina Gibson.  Please pray for Pastor Ron and his wife Juanita as they continue to minister through God’s leadership, and as they strive to reach men, women, youth, boys and girls for the cause of Christ.
