Senior Pastor

About Pastor Tom
Everything I am and all that I have is because of the grace and mercy of God that has been poured out on my life freely because of His great love. The Lord saved me from a life of drug use and despair, He reached down and came crashing into my world with His reality in the produce department of Albertsons in Portland Oregon in 1982 in a radical life altering way. The Lord Jesus saved me and instantly delivered from Drugs and physically healed me the day He saved me. I’ve been married to my high school sweet heart Sherry since 1982 I have four wonderful children who are married and love the Lord. God has given me 11 precious grandchildren and one more on the way. My hearts desire to know God more intimately, to love and serve him and his people. My life is simply a response to to the grace, mercy and love The Lord Jesus lavishly pours out on me continually,  I’m a grace case.

Pastor Tom's Life Influences:

My wife Sherry, 

Her selfless love and endless mercy has softened me and strengthened me in the everydayness of living in a difficult world. Sherry preaches the gospel every day with her life. Sherry you are my best friend and my faithful wife. Love you as much as I know how to love.

Chuck Smith,

I have learned more about the priority of scripture and the exposition of scripture from Chuck Smith senior pastor of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa than anyone. His simple and powerful teaching of Gods word verse by verse has born fruit in my life and the lives of untold others.

Thank you Pastor Chuck.

Jeff Smith

Senior Pastor of Cottage Grove Calvary Chapel. Jeff showed me what the heart of a shepherd looks like in real life. His friendship over the last 25+ years through the highs and the deepest lows, has been pure joy!

Serving as his assistant pastor for close to five years before he sent me to plant Lebanon Calvary Chapel was flat out awesome. The influence he has had on my life and my family has been priceless. He is forever my friend and blood bought brother.

Thank you Jeff.

There continued great patience with me, there ceaseless support for the Lords work in Lebanon. For there encouragement and prayers. You are my family.

Love you

About Pastor Tommy:

Upon returning from bible college, I came on staff here a Lebanon Calvary Chapel. In 2008 I married my beautiful wife Sarah and we now have four children. I am the children’s pastor and the high school pastor.

Pastor Tommy's Life Influences:

My dad is one of my greatest life influences, he always taught me about God through his words and actions, I would not be the man I am today if it wasn’t for his love for God and His word.

David Guzik is another man that was a great influence in my life, he was my bible college director. He taught me a great deal about how to study the Word of God for teaching and also showed me through watching his life the importance of keeping your devotional life separate from your study life, which I believe is critical for anyone to make it in ministry.

JR High Pastor

About Pastor Sam:
I was raised and reared in a Christ centered home with parents who loved the Lord and desired that their children come to know Him. I myself did not love or desire God alone until I experienced my Savior at age 14. Since then there has been an unquenchable desire to know Christ more.

I am married to my wonderful bride Elizabeth who always joyfully comes beside me in all the ministry God has allowed us to do.

My life verse’s

Colossians 3:1-4

“Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory.”

Shawn Pruett

Worship Pastor

About Pastor Shawn:
God allowed me to be raised in a home with parents who love Christ and with an intense passion for music. My dad introduced me to the guitar as a young kid and its pretty much been in my hands ever since. Jesus came into my heart at 12 years old and from that point on, even though my walk with Him wasn’t always faithful, my merciful God was always faithful to forgive me and loved me through it all. He changed my life completely by blessing me with my beautiful wife, Katie, through whom He has used to shape me to His calling and, might I add, having the patience of Job with me. I am so blessed and undeserving to serve God’s people in His music ministry, and to be able to lift up songs of praise to Him using the beautiful sound of music is purely a gift He’s given to all of us.
