JOSHUA STOCK Senior Pastor
Hi, my name is Joshua Stock. My family and I moved to Dayton, TN to take the Pastorate of Calvary in January 2014. One of the greatest joys that my wife Esther and I have, is to serve the Lord, while leading and co-laboring with the incredible people of Calvary Baptist Church.
I trusted Christ in a special meeting at our home church by the age of fifteen. Throughout my teenage years, I felt that God was calling me to preach the gospel, although I didn’t surrender to the call right away. After graduating high school in East Ridge, TN, I moved out to El Paso, TX and attended one year of community college while serving at a local church. During that year, I answered the call to attend Bible College. I met my sweetheart, Esther, a short time after, and we got married in 2006. God has blessed our family with two precious boys (Zechariah and Thaddaeus) that bring so much joy into our lives.
My wife and I have served in pastoral ministry for over 7 years in which the Lord has blessed in many ways. We have seen many a lives changed. Our prayer is that the Lord would continue to use us for His honor and glory to make an eternal difference! God has burdened our hearts for the people of Rhea County, and our desire is to reach out to the various communities of the NW Chattanooga area. We hope to live out our motto “Love People, Serve People, Grow in Grace”, as we point them to Jesus Christ!
