Our Pastor

Pastor Douglas W. Farrell

Pastor Doug Farrell and his wife, Lori, came to Calvary Baptist Church in August 1991.  Pastor Doug trusted Christ as His Savior at the age of 4 years old.  His father, Russ Farrell - who was also a pastor and evangelist,  led him to Christ at Iowa Regular Baptist Camp during a family camp. He is a graduate of Faith Baptist Bible College and Theological Seminary in Ankeny, IA.  He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Pastoral Theology in 1985 and his Master of Arts degree in Pastoral Theology  in 1986.  Pastor Doug and Lori met at Faith Baptist Bible College and were married in June 1985.  

Lori trusted Christ as her Savior during a Vacation Bible School in her home church in Waterloo, Iowa when she was 6 years old.  She studied Elementary Education at Faith Baptist Bible College. Lori plays the piano for our services and is our church secretary.  She has also directed our children's choir ministry for over 25 years.  They have 4 married children and 10 grandchildren.  

Pastor Farrell loves the Word of God and faithfully preaches it.  If you have a spiritual need, he would be glad to visit with you.
