In Loving Memory, Dr. E. R. Healan, Pastor 

Dr ER Healan, was the Pastor of Calvary Baptist Church beginning in 1973.  God greatly blessed us with a wonderful pastor for many years. It was his desire to proclaim our living Savior Jesus Christ to a lost and dying world as well as edify, encourage and lovingly shepherd the flock of which he pastored. Dr Healan joined our Savior in heaven in February of 2021.  While we will greatly miss him here, we know that there is rejoicing in heaven as he worships at the feet of Jesus.  It is our mission and honor to carry forward his mission and continue to see souls saved, baptized and continue to grow as God adds to our congregation.
