Senior Pastor

In the providence of God, I was born into a strong Christian home in Frederick, MD. Shortly after I was born, my dad felt called of God to the mission field. After several years of college preparation, we traveled halfway around the world to serve as missionaries in Papua New Guinea. It was while I was in this foreign land that I was saved at the age of nine after a Sunday evening service. At the age of 16, I felt God's call to preach. After graduating from Frederick Christian Academy in 1985, I attended Bob Jones University and graduated in 1989 with a B.A. degree in Christian Missions. I continued my studies with an M.A. degree in Bible in 1991. A week after graduation, I married the love of my life, Christine Gerard. We returned to Greenville, SC, where I served as part-time youth pastor in Spartanburg, SC. I finally finished my seminary education, graduating with an M.Div. degree in 1994. That summer my wife and I returned to our home church, People's Baptist in Frederick, MD. There I served as the assistant pastor and taught in the high school at FCA. During my six years of ministry there, the Lord blessed us with three children, Andrew, Abigail, and Tabitha. It was also at People's Baptist Church that I was ordained to the gospel ministry in 1998. On November 1, 2000, I began my pastorate at Calvary Baptist Church. The people have been a wonderful blessing to my family and me.

 

Pastor Steve Kindstedt

Assistant Pastor

The Lord blessed me greatly by giving me to Christian parents who faithfully taught my siblings and me the word of God and encouraged us to do whatever God would call us to do. I grew up attending good, Bible-preaching churches. When I was a senior in high school God graciously saved me at a youth rally called Farm Fest. I thank God for His love in turning me "from darkness to light." During my senior year I began to actively seek God's direction for my college training and future ministry. At Bob Jones University I studied Missions and Spanish as an undergraduate, thinking that God was directing me into Spanish language mission work. God continued leading my steps as I met and married (1997) my best friend, Mary, earned an M.A. degree in Bible (2004), and became heavily involved in outreach at Mount Calvary Baptist Church. The Lord directs His children step by step, and for me that meant that He directed me away from missions and into pastoral ministry stateside. Various teaching and preaching opportunities, combined with leadership roles at our church strengthened in our hearts the sense that I ought to pursue pastoral work. We're thankful for the Lord's leading in bringing us to Calvary (2010) and allowing me to be ordained to the ministry here (2011). It is our prayer that God will use us here for His glory for as long as He desires.
