About Us


Pastor Jim Spears

Senior Pastor

Pastor Jim Spears was saved and called to ministry at Calvary Baptist Church, Glen Burnie, MD. He met and married his wife, Kathy, during that time. Jim attended Calvary Baptist Theological Seminary from 1982 to 1986. While finishing at CBTS, Jim & Kathy surrendered to go to the Philippines as missionaries. They were missionaries on the islands of Samar and Luzon from 1986 to 1996. While finishing up as missionaries, the Lord led them to Calvary Baptist Church, Pottstown, and they were voted in to the church in March, 1997. They have four adult sons.

* Kathy went home to be with the Lord during January of 2015 after nearly 35 years of marriage.

Pastor Joshua Farr

Assistant Pastor

Josh was exposed to the gospel message when he was a child, and by God's grace his eyes were opened to his need to trust in Jesus Christ for salvation. During his teen years, through positive experiences within his youth group, Josh began to have a burden for ministry and made a commitment to prepare for full-time vocational service. After completing a BA at Maranatha Baptist Bible College, Josh married his high school sweetheart, Aneta. They moved to the Pottstown area so that Josh could study at Calvary Baptist Theological Seminary, where he is currently pursuing a Master of Divinity degree. Josh has been on staff here at Calvary in Pottstown since August of 2008.
