Jack Homesley, Pastor
Pastor Jack Homesley has been our Senior Pastor since August, 2015. Jack earned a Bachelor of Arts in Theology (with languages) from Columbia Bible College and Seminary, a division of Columbia International University in Columbia, SC in 1989 where he majored in Bible and minored in Pastoral Ministry. Jack was saved at Calvary Baptist Church in 1983 and following his call to the pastorate and theological training he served as the Senior pastor of Christ Community Church in Huntersville, NC for 25 years. By God’s grace the church grew from fewer than fifty five on Sundays to well over one thousand members, sending missionaries all over the world. He led the church through the acquisition of new property, a complete relocation, and construction of at least five new buildings and a worship center. After 25 years Jack didn’t, know where, but he knew the Lord was calling away from his life work. After resigning the congregation he’d pastored for 25 years, Jack answered God’s distinct and clear call to return home to Calvary where he now serves as our leader, friend , counselor and pastor. He has served as a member of the Board of Trustees at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC for eight years and as Chairman of Trustees for a one-year term. He currently serves on the Board of Visitors for that institution. He teaches and participates annually in the Tarheel Leadership Network, a cooperative venture with the Baptist Convention of North Carolina and ShareLife Ministries that mentors pastors across the state.
Pastor Jack’s driving force is a love for Christ, obedience to His call and will, and a passion for world evangelization. He is committed to preaching God’s Word in a way that is practical, understandable, and life-changing. His ambition is to help people exchange the lies of this world for the truth of God’s Word and see the life-changing gospel of Jesus Christ carried to the ends of the earth.
Pastor Jack was born in Charlotte, NC and is married to his wife Kim. They have three children, Jonathan, who is also a pastor at a different church, Amy, and Rachel, both of whom have served in various mission fields and ministries and two grandchildren, Olivia and Lincoln. Pastor Jack and His wife Kim enjoy the beach, camping, motorcycling, and fishing. Jack also enjoys working on motorcycles.
