Our Story

How it all started...

In February of 2019, I called my wife and asked her if she wanted to hear something crazy. I then told her; “I think God may be moving us.” Her response was, “I know.” Little did we know it would be to plant a church in Nashua New Hampshire.

The thought of starting a new work at our age seemed crazy, but God is the God of crazy things. And God, being faithful as He is, eased our hearts with various signs. For Devin it was a quote from Elizabeth Elliot, “Fear arises when we begin to imagine that everything depends on us.” Similarly, I was reading in the Gospel of Mark when God brought my attention to a man named Jairus who asked Jesus to come and heal his daughter. While on their way, servants came from Jairus’s house and told him his daughter had died. At that point Jesus looked at him and said, “Don’t be afraid, only believe.” In reflecting on this, I took comfort that God would be with us wherever we went. While I was telling Devin, my wife, God gave me the deeper meaning of what He wanted me to understand. He told Jairus not to fear because He would raise his daughter from the dead. In the same way, God would be the one to go before us to raise people to a life of purpose and hope in Him.

We are His vessels; the work to be done in Nashua depends on God alone. So, here we are, being faithful to the call and expecting great things. Already, God has put a deep love in our hearts for Nashua and the people that live there. We have no idea what He has in store, but we find great peace in following the plan of the God who raises the dead to life.

Where we have been...

God called us out of an amazing church in New Mexico, where we saw people leave destructive and meaningless lives and become life-giving people in the community. He invited us here to Nashua to bring the same hope, love and joy offered through His Son, Jesus.

Where we are headed...

In September of 2020 we look to launch Calvary New Life. In the year leading up to that time, we look to build a team of 50 people who will be a part the life giving experience Calvary New Life will be to Nashua.
