Dr. Sam Crouch - Senior Pastor
Sam came to Calvary in June of 2008 and he serves as our Senior Pastor. He is a graduate of Baylor University and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity degree and a Doctor of Ministry degree. Sam has served churches in Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico, Tennessee, Germany, Georgia, and Arizona. In addition, Sam spent almost 14 years as a youth Sunday School editor for LifeWay Christian Resources. Sam has been married to his beautiful bride, Jan, since 1971. They have one daughter, Karen, a son-in-law, Russell, and two beautiful granddaughters, Molly and Megan. Sam gave his heart and life to Jesus Christ as a young boy. God has given him a life-long passion to 'Make Disciples' and to see others experience and know firsthand the endless love of Jesus Christ. One of Sam's life verses is Philippians 1:20 ~ "For I fully expect and hope that I will never be ashamed, but that I will continue to be bold for Christ, as I have been in the past. And I trust that my life will bring honor to Christ, whether I live or die." Sam's favorite pastime is fly fishing -- just ask him sometime!
