  • eric waits

    student pastor

     “Followers of Christ and leaders of others" was something I was taught as a kid growing up in the church.  I was part of a group of young believers called the Galileans.  When teaching followers of Christ, I believe I need to relate and be understanding to their beliefs and goals.  I believe that prayer and discipleship will lead the student to be Followers of Christ and leaders of others

    I have been married for 10 years to my lovely wife Bailey. I have 2 wonderful kids, Brice (10) and Rylee (5). Some of my hobbies include fishing, hunting, playing video games, and hanging out with my family. I love the outdoors so when I get a chance to convey Gods wondrous landscape, I take full advantage of it. 

    I just want to say what an honor and blessing to be a part of Calvary Baptist Church! I look forward to seeing the greatness that God does here at Calvary.
