Calvary Baptist Church, Jersey Shore, Pa., warmly welcomed Chris Hindal to speak in both morning services and the Adult Bible Fellowship on Sunday, Jan. 12. Pastor Jeff Howell has served the Lord and the people of Calvary Baptist for 20 years. Pastor Howell said, “We are experiencing the normal challenges of ministry, but overall we are headed in the right direction.” Here is a church that is not situated in a growth area of the country, but by God’s grace it is experiencing growth. Two years ago the church took its first missions trip and visited Papua New Guinea. People of the church are still talking about the impact of that trip upon their lives. Chris Hindal was encouraged by the upbeat attitude of the congregation as well as its intentional efforts to reach out to the community.
