Calvin Crest Conferences names new executive director

After a nine-month search process, Calvin Crest Conferences named Tiffany Staman to be their next executive director.

Calvin Crest Conferences is a Christian campsite near Oakhurst. The campsite suffered a considerable loss during the railroad fire.

“Calvin Crest is poised for growth and there is a sense of expectation in the air. I am thrilled to be part of a place that has such a rich history in the Central Valley and has impacted thousands of lives over the years. I pray we will impact as many in the years to come,” Statman said.

Before moving to Calvin Crest Conferences for her new role, Statman was the executive director of The Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford, IL.
