"But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I my finish my course and the ministry I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God." (Acts 20:24)
Mark Newman--Associate Pastor/Minister to Students
John Wilson--Worship Pastor
A sinner saved by grace, I was raised in Knoxville in a godly home. As I matured in faith, I became more involved in the ministry of leading worship at my home church through playing guitar and singing.
I moved to Johnson City to attend ETSU in pursuit of a bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies in 2017. I got involved in the BCM there but had trouble finding a local church. The campus minister directed me to Calvary, where I was called as worship pastor shortly thereafter.
Shortly after starting at Calvary, I went home to marry the girl of my dreams and high school sweetheart, ReAnn and bring her to live with me in Johnson City.
I have a deep and learned passion for the Word of God and a love for songs rich with the truths revealed in the Scriptures, whether old or new.
"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."
