Bro. John Deaton was called to be the Pastor of Calvary Baptist Church in January of 2004. Bro. John married his lovely wife Kristi on October 25th, 1997. They have two children; a son and a daughter, and at the time of this writing four precious and wonderful grandchildren. Calvary was Bro. John’s first and only church to Pastor, and we have been blessed to have him and his wonderful family as a part of our church family for so many years. Bro. John has a passion for our church and community, preaching the Word of God and seeing lost souls saved.
I am so thankful for God’s wonderful grace, for by it I am saved and free from the bondage of sin. Not yet perfect, but completely forgiven and loved.
Bro. John Deaton
