Dr. Craig Scott is our Senior Pastor. He has been with Calvary since 1984. He is a native of Connecticut and came to a saving faith in Jesus Christ in June of 1976. Shortly after his salvation he sensed God’s calling into a full-time ministry. He left his career as a sales engineer and attended Temple Baptist Theological Seminary in Chattanooga, Tennessee. There he received a Masters in Divinity. It was during this time he met his lovely wife, Betty Ann (Pontano). They have two children, David and Amy. He later attended Dallas Theological Seminary receiving his Doctorate in Ministry.
God placed within Craig a strong burden to return to his home state to dynamically preach and teach God’s Word with accuracy and clarity so that people may know Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. It is his desire to see that each believer is grounded in their faith and living victoriously. His favorite verse is “Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established” Proverbs 16:3
