Crystal E. Ward lives by her personal motto: “To inspire, to motivate, and to connect.”
She currently serves as the Executive Pastor. In addition to the traditional pastoral responsibilities of preaching and assisting in shepherding the congregation, she oversees the church’s operations, strategic planning, administration, finances, and human resources to achieve its mission and vision.
She has a wealth of leadership experience in the corporate, not-for-profit, and religious sectors. Before God’s calling on her life to full-time ministry, Crystal spent almost 20 years in the corporate sector. She was a Senior Vice President at Citibank and Vice President at JPMorgan.
Crystal holds a Masters of Divinity from Andrews Theological Seminary, a Masters in Public Administration in Management, a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance from Baruch, Zicklin School of Business, and a certificate in Executive Management from Columbia University Business School.
