  • Senior Pastor

    Frank Ippolito

    Pastor Frank was born in 1957 in Chicago, IL. In 1973, he moved with his parents and family to Anaheim, CA where he graduated from Katella High School in 1975. On December 7, 1975, at age 18, Frank asked Jesus to be his Lord and Savior and was radically born-again. Frank attended Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa and studied under the teaching ministry of Pastor Chuck Smith. Frank still considers Pastor Smith his pastor and mentor. Sensing a call to ministry, Frank planted a few churches in various places, including Europe, where he served as a missionary for 6 years.

    In 1976 Frank met and married his wife, Tammy, and together they have three children, Anthony, Michael, and Christi. All three are now married and have provided Frank and Tammy with 9 grandchildren. In June of 2006, Frank's wife, Tammy, departed this life and went to be with Jesus . Pastor Frank has since remarried and enjoys life in Vineland, NJ with his wife, Gerri. Gerri has one daughter, Erin, who also has four children. Together, Frank and Gerri have been blessed with and enjoy 13 beautiful grandchildren. All four of their children, and each of their spouses, are actively serving Christ.

    Anthony ippolito

    I was raised as a Christian my whole life with my father being in the ministry for as long as I can remember, both as a pastor and as a missionary. While serving as a missionary in Europe I went to the Calvary Chapel Bible College for a couple of semesters. Through this I found a love for worship, music, teaching, the study of the Word of God, and that my hearts desire was to serve God with all my life. While in Europe, I met and married my beautiful wife who is now my greatest help and partner in the ministry.

    After our time in Europe we had the opportunity to serve in Massachusetts where I worked at a Christian radio station for a short time until I felt God calling me to serve with my father in Calvary Chapel of Vineland, NJ.

    Today I, along with my beautiful wife and three kids, serve as the worship pastor and radio editor/programmer here at Calvary Chapel of Vineland . I have never known a greater joy than the joy that I've found in serving God with my whole life.

    Philip Wojcik

    Born and raised right here in South Jersey, I grew up in a Christian home and have been attending Calvary Chapel Vineland the entirety of my life. I gave my life to Christ when I was 8 at the Harvest Crusade in Philadelphia. However, I didn't understand what God had planned for me until I truly surrendered everything later in life.

    I graduated high school in 2007 and started attending Bible College in Europe in spring of 2008 and studied there for almost 2 years. Upon returning to the United States, I started serving at Calvary Vineland in 2009 and was brought on staff in 2010. 

    I met my wife Rachael while serving at CCV and was lucky enough to marry her in April of 2012. Together with our dog, Daisy, we love to explore God's nature through either walks around local parks, seeing the sights, or simply beachin' it at the shore. 

    Now after being with the CCV team for 10+ years, I run our Media Ministry during church services and take care of all things audio, video, and technology during the week. My beautiful wife and I are also heavily involved with reaching out to and working with the teens in the Youth Ministry. It has truly been a blessing serving at CCV and I can't wait to see what the Lord does next in me and wife's life.

  • Women's Ministry

    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.”
