Pastor Misael Calderon was born into a family that had a pastoral ministry calling. He is a third generation Pastor. At the age of 6, Pastor Misael began preaching the word in Puerto Rico and later on moved to the US. He married Zuleika Ortiz and together they have served as Youth Pastors and Co-Pastors. In 2009, God called them to Cleveland, Tn to serve as Lead Pastors of a Hispanic Congregation.  Currently they serve as staff pastors of the Hispanic Congregation here at Woodward. Pastor Misael & Zuleika have three kids: Cayshlee, Carlos and, Zuleymi. “Woodward Church worships in two locations in two different languages but it is truly one church body who often join together in service and activities.”

Pastor Terry and Brandi Burns joined Woodward Church in the Summer of 2013 as the J-12 (6th - 7th Grade) Pastors.  He recently completed the Ministerial Internship Program with the Church of God.  Pastor Terry previously served as the Youth Pastor at the Lakeview Church of God in Cleveland, TN. He currently serves as the College & Career pastor here at Woodward.  Pastor Terry and his lovely wife Brandi have two children, Bailey and Houston. Brandi is now serving as our Pre-School Coordinator. She currently teaches at the Tennessee Christian Preparatory School where she is the director of Pre-School.

Pastor Jeannie Luallen lives in Athens, TN with her husband Jason and five children and has been serving as Children's Pastor since May 2016. She attended Lee University in Cleveland, Tn where she majored in Music Education and was a member of the Lee Singers. She moved to Nashville, Tn to begin a career in acting.  After years of serving in a secular environment, Jeannie felt the call to use her talents for the Lord in ministry. She has now been serving, in various capacities, in Children’s Ministry for over 18 years. She is passionate about teaching the young and considers Children’s Ministry to be the most critical area of ministry. She holds firm to Proverbs 22:6 – “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he shall not depart from it.” Her ministry goal is to teach them while they are young that they have a valuable and important role to play in the Body of Christ and to help them gain confidence in that role. She does this by allowing the children to not just be” hearers of the Word”, but “doers of the Word”. If you were to visit the Kids service on any given Sunday you would see the children using their gifts and talents by ushering, singing on the praise team, performing in dramas and skits, working the media and sound, teaching and most importantly, praying for one another.

Pastor Jared and Nicole Petty joined the Woodward Team in the Summer of 2015 as Worship Pastors. He is originally from St. Louis, MO where he attended Twin Rivers Worship Center. He has been in Worship Ministry since 2007 and in that time has had the opportunity to lead worship in many different venues. Nicole works for Cleveland City Schools as a site director for their after school program.  Jared and Nicole are passionate for World Missions and continue to travel whenever the opportunity arises. It is Pastor Jared and Nicole's desire that a culture of worship be presented so that hearts and lives are changed by the presence and power of Almighty God.

Pam Duggan has been a long-time servant to the Woodward Church of God.   She has served in various positions and roles over the past several to include youth pastor, secretary and her current position as Business Adminstrator.  She holds a B.S. & B.A. in Marketing and Business Management and continues to serve the church with excellence and compassion in her role as Administrator.
