Calvary Baptist Church is pleased to welcome our new pastor, Rev. Hannah Coe with a unanimous vote. Hannah and her family will join us in Waco this summer!

Update from 3/25/2021
The Pastor Search Team is pleased to announce that we have unanimously decided on a final candidate to recommend to the congregation. We ask that you reserve the weekend of April 17-18 as a call weekend. A schedule will be forthcoming about ways you can be involved and meet our candidate on that weekend, both virtually and in-person following social distancing protocols. An announcement of the candidate's name and more information about them will be sent out the week prior to the call weekend. We are not able to announce their name quite yet, as we wish to respect their journey of notifying their current congregation. These are exciting times and we are overjoyed to be able to share more with you very soon.
Update from 2/11/2021
The Pastor Search committee has developed an outstanding short list of candidates who we will be continuing conversations with in the weeks ahead. Please continue to be in prayer for our committee and each of these candidates
Update from 1/7/2020
The pastor search committee met this week and chose 14 candidates to go to the next round of the search process. The next round will consist of written questions that have been sent out to the candidates. The committee is very impressed with the slate of candidates who have moved to this round and hopes that you will pray for them alongside us in the days ahead.
