Rudy Kramer

Rudy Kramer

Rudy accepted Christ as his personal Savior at the age of 10. He grew up attending Immanuel Kapelle (Fellowship of German Believers) in Los Angeles with his immigrated German/Argentine parents. It was at this church’s kids camp that Rudy felt the Holy Spirit speak to him. It was also at this small German speaking church where his parents and other members demonstrated Christ’s life in their hearts and a life of service to the church.

Rudy and his family have been attending Calvary Church since 1997 when they put their first child into Calvary’s preschool. Along with his wife Annette, he became a member in 2007. Rudy and Annette married in 1991 and have three children who all attend Calvary and have Christ in their lives. He has served alongside Annette at Calvary mostly in Children’s Ministries following their three children through the various age groups. Together they were lead facilitators for a LifeGroup, sharing in the teaching and leading of the group, and Rudy most recently served a three-year term as Elder.

Rudy has been a commercial real estate banker for over 25 years. In his current position, as a Senior Vice President at California Bank & Trust, he is the Regional Director of Real Estate facilitating and managing large construction and commercial real estate loans for bank clients. Rudy loves old cars (classics to hot rods) and is always open for a conversation about cars. He enjoys mountain biking and hiking regularly (especially with his Calvary buddies), hanging out in his garden and barbecuing for family and friends.
