Pastor - Jonathan VandenHurk came to Calvary Baptist Church as a missionary pastor from the USA. He was born in Indianapolis and grew up in the mountains of Tennessee. He became a Christian as a young child and began preaching as a teenager. His first time in England was to help plant churches in 2005, as part of a ministry of Crown College called New Testament Church Pioneers. This is when he met Natalie. He came back in 2006 to help another church, and returned in 2007 to get married. Jonathan and Natalie look forward to what God continues to do at Calvary Baptist Church as we have opportunities to share the Gospel and encourage and plant other churches in the UK as well.
Church Evangelist / Missions - Colin Pavitt was born in Clacton-on-Sea in Essex. He heard the Gospel from a preacher on the radio and was soundly saved. After working as an Electronics Engineer and air traffic controller, he was called into the ministry and attended seminary. For 17 years, he faithfully served as pastor of Lifegate Baptist Church in Corby. In 2011, he became an evangelist to help British churches and to share the Gospel on a full time basis. In that capacity he came to Calvary Baptist Church and helped with the spiritual oversight of the church. He now continues to work with us as church evangelist. Rosalind Pavitt was born in Crawley, West Sussex, and was born again at a tent meeting in Tunbridge Wells in Kent. She then went to Bible College where she met Mr Pavitt and has served the Lord faithfully with him for over 25 years. She is an excellent pianist and does a tremendous job working with young people. They are now working in the Northeast of England helping a church in Hartlepool and establishing Calvary Baptist Church Northeast in the city of Durham. They also have an extensive ministry of evangelism in the Northeast of England, including open-air ministry and door-to-door evangelism, assisted by missionary helper, Miss Kerrie Moles.
