Pastor Garry Jordan and the congregation of Calvary Baptist Church at 130 Lee Street in Sulphur Springs, Texas is inviting everyone to attend a series of Revival services beginning Sunday August 19, 2018. Larry Jordan will serve as Evangelist for the eight services. During this Revival, the Jordan brothers are encouraging former members to revisit Calvary Baptist Church. In fact, past members are especially invited for Monday’s 7 pm service which includes an Ice Cream Fellowship after the service. The full schedule of Revival services is: Sunday August 19 at 11 am and 7 pm, Monday August 20 at 12 noon and 7 pm, Tuesday August 21 at 12 noon and 7 pm, and Wednesday August 22 at 12 noon and 7 pm. Each of the one-hour noon services will include a free lunch.
Garry Jordan became Pastor at Calvary Baptist Church in March 2018, and it marked a welcome return for him. Gary was baptized at Calvary, then later had the opportunity to serve as Assistant Pastor and Youth Minister from 1978 until the mid-80’s. Garry graduated from Sulphur Springs High School and went to college to pursue a Business degree, planning to take over his dad’s business, Southern Auto Supply in Sulphur Springs. “However, the Lord had other plans for me” quipped Garry. He has served in various church leadership roles in the Hopkins and Franklin County areas for over 30 years, and he and his wife Gena are owners of Good News Christian Bookstore inside the VF Outlet in Sulphur Springs.
Also a former Calvary Baptist Church pastor, Larry Jordan is now a full-time Revival Minister who serves at churches in a wide region across NE Texas as well as with a radio ministry. After graduating Sulphur Springs High School, Larry was attending Dallas Baptist University on a full track scholarship and planning a career as a track and football coach. “That’s when the Lord got ahold of me and worked a miracle. I remember kneeling in the dorm room on October 30, 1969 and giving my life over to God and the work he would have me do. That was 49 years ago” recalled Larry. According to him, many churches today have stopped holding traditional revivals. However, he believes these are vital for the refreshment and general well-being of church members. Rather than evangelizing messages, Revival should offer a return to the fundamentals of faith and the basics of Christian life, and a time to rediscover joy.
Pastor Garry Jordan encourages everyone to attend the Revival services this week as well as worship on a weekly basis. Regular services are held on Sundays at 11 am and 6 pm, and Wednesday Prayer meetings at 6:30 pm at Calvary Baptist Church, 130 Lee Street.
