Overseers Adam Diehl & Jon Paul Robles

About The Blog

Calvary Ministries International has initiated a division of Pastoral Overseers to help strengthen the local church. This blog is the centerpiece of the effort to strengthen worship arts in the local church. CMI churches have our permission to print and distribute the blogs in any format deemed necessary (print, emails, etc.). The comments shared in the blog are the unique opinions of the authors, however these three overarching points should be assumed in all our writings:

*We believe in using the arts to help people move closer to God. This includes music, dancing, worship, sound, lights, videos, projection systems, and more.

*We believe in the uniqueness of the local church. The solution for our churches may not be the solution for yours. Each reader must translate our ideas into their own settings.

*We believe in the spiritual authority of the senior pastor. Your senior pastor is aware of situations in the church that you are not, and often takes criticism in order to protect individuals in his congregation. We believe any changes in a church must change with the Senior Pastor. We wish to partner with you in assisting your senior pastor with the vision of your church.

About the Bloggers

Both of us would like to extend our availability to personally assist any CMI church.

Adam Diehl is an overseer of Worship / Arts Ministries. Adam has served as the Worship Arts Pastor at New Hope Christian Center in Waterloo, Indiana since 2006. He accepted Christ at a young age. With his father as his senior pastor, he has inherited a deep love for helping the local church develop in Worship Arts. He graduated from Indiana University with a bachelor’s degree in Music with an Outside Field in Communication, and is currently finishing graduate studies at Trinity Theological Seminary. He enjoys dog training, bicycling, and chilling at his favorite wifi-accessible coffee shop. He is passionate about helping churches build strong music teams and develop a Biblical culture of worship. He can be reached at Adam@cmiworship.com.

Jonathan “JP” Robles is an overseer of Worship / Arts Ministries. He is the son of Pastoral Overseer Abel Robles, of Calvary Temple Worship Center in New Castle, Pennsylvania, and has served as the Minister of Music and Media as well as an Associate Minister since 2004. Raised a preacher’s kid, he came to know the Lord at a young age. As equal parts musician and audio engineer, he directs worship and oversees most media related projects at his home church. He is married to Diana, his best friend since childhood. His background has impacted the way he views ministry. JP says, “Today the use of multi-media has become a reality within the church. The borders that divide the fields of music, graphic design, audio and video, are blending more and more together. The important thing is to always be mindful of our objective, which is to give God glory not wow and awe people for the sake of entertainment.” With a passion for cross-cultural worship, JP blends multiple generational and cultural influences into his musical approach to worship. His heart is lead by the spirit of reconciliation within the church, to bring people of different backgrounds, ethnicities and ages together under the call of Christian oneness. In his spare time he’s likely to be found taking apart devices in hopes of fixing them (occasionally meeting that goal), laughing loudly with his wife, family and friends, and reading theological commentaries.  Both JP and Diana are graduates of Youngstown State University with Bachelor of Arts degrees in Telecommunications, focusing on television and radio production, and Full Sail University where JP received an Associate Degree in Recording Arts and Diana in Film. He can be reached at JP@cmiworship.com.
