Meet the Speakers

  • Dianne Lombardo

    Dianne Lombardo loves to encourage women to become all that the Lord designed them to be. After 37 years of marriage, 3 children, 7 grandchildren and life lived to the fullest, Dianne is blessed and humbled to serve the Lord in this season of her life. Her current roles as a pastor’s wife, speaker, poet and women’s ministry leader, bring exciting new challenging opportunities daily. Throughout her life she has known many ups and downs - spiritually, physically and emotionally. This has given her great compassion for other women who may struggle with grief, illness, loss, sin or just life on a roller coaster! Her life is full now, not because it is perfect - for it is far from it - but because she is in a growing and empowering relationship with the One True Living God. He is the great Healer of hearts and Encourager of souls. Dianne’s passion is to share His love, forgiveness and design for women, throughout the world, through Bible based teaching, practical application and fun. Ephesians 2:10 sums up this passion “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works that He prepared beforehand for us to walk in.”

  • Valerie Clark

    Valerie Clark’s life has been transformed by God’s amazing love. Everything in her life is simply an expression of God’s abundant blessings. She is the wife of Calvary Chapel Gloucester County senior pastor, Gary Clark, and the mother of 5 wonderful children: Josiah and his wife Erin, Micah, Hannah, and Alethea, a grandmother of 2, Maxwell Eleanor! Valerie, along with a group of servant leaders, heads the women’s ministry at CCGC. She considers it a joy to be able to teach women about the love of our God and to encourage them to walk out their love for Christ through a personal relationship.

  • Kourtney Ippolito

    28 years ago I made the choice to follow Jesus and I’m forever grateful for my Lord. Shortly after I became a Christian I left to serve on the mission field in Austria. It was in Austria that I was reunited with my childhood love from 3rd grade, we got married and served in Austria for a total of 3 years together until God called us back to America. After moving back to America, we served for a short time at a church in Massachusetts. Shortly after the birth of our oldest son we moved to New Jersey to live, work, and serve in the ministry here at Calvary Chapel Vineland.

    We have been in New Jersey now for 26 years and have raised three beautiful children, all young adults, Ryan, Larissa and Jaydon, two are married and my youngest son Jaydon is soon to be married this August, and we have one beautiful granddaughter.

    Before coming into the ministry full time I homeschooled our children and spent 12 years working in the public school system working with children with autism and behavior disorders. I worked as a one-on-one aide and became a behavior technician. It was a joy and passion of mine for a long time and a mission field God gave me into the community, but God is doing a new thing in my life and this year has impressed on both my and my husbands heart the importance of building up the church together in Christ. That time is now and we’re both excited to see what God is going to do!

    My husband Anthony is a Pastor here at Calvary Chapel Vineland and together we serve full time in many areas. I lead our women’s ministry alongside a dedicated group of ladies that serve and grow together in Christ. My passion is to keep growing in Jesus and encourage other women and children to do the same. “Iron sharpens iron.” Proverbs 27:17

    If I have down time you may find me outside! I love bonfires, hiking, swimming, the beach, my dogs, gardening, walks with my husband, food and sweet laughter, and time with friends. I thank God for what He has done in my life. Things aren’t always good, but I always say, “God is good, even when life is not.” Psalm 34:8- “Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him.”

  • Rachel Nelson

    I'm a 37-year-old wife and homeschooling mother of 3, originally from Southern California but now a New Jersey transplant. I followed my heart and fell for a Jersey boy, leading me to embark on a life-changing journey across the country to the east coast, and I've never looked back. My passions include my love for Jesus, nurturing plants, and expressing my creativity through art.

  • Jen Cassidy

    Jen attends Calvary Chapel of Vineland where she enjoys serving on the worship

    team and hugging everyone she can wrap her arms around. For the past twenty-

    two years, she’s been employed with the State of New Jersey Judiciary, serving

    for over a decade as a team leader in the Criminal Division. Since 2020, she’s

    served as a Bible teacher at Mission Teens, an inpatient outreach and Bible

    training center in Norma, NJ. Jen has run sixteen full marathons in fourteen

    different states, including Alaska, between 2012 and 2022. Whether she’ll

    complete all fifty states in her lifetime is still uncertain. It was once a goal, but

    after some unexpected health setbacks, her focus centered on writing her first

    work of fiction. Waiting at the Finish began as a therapeutic journey, but became

    much more. Her book was published in November of 2022 and can be found on

    Amazon and other online sites. Jen is in the process of writing her second novel,

    The People Without Faces, with a goal of publishing early 2025. She and her

    husband, Jeff, recently celebrated twenty-five years of marriage and will be

    empty-nesters by the end of the summer as both children marry in July and

    August, respectively. Jen’s other hobbies include camping, boating, water tubing,

    fishing, hiking, skiing, rollerblading, hosting scavenger hunts and murder mystery

    parties, reading, studying God’s word, and loving on people.
