Meet Our Pastors
Associate Pastor - Colter Rantz
Serving at Calvary Bible Church since 2009, Colter fulfills several responsibilities in his role as Associate Pastor. Having lived in the Nixa area his entire life, Colter started attending Calvary when he was about four years old. God's grace was made known to him through a Vacation Bible School that Calvary Bible hosted, and the young man realized Jesus Christ as his Lord and personal savior. Growing up with a passion to serve his Lord and see others come to know God's grace, in March of 2012 Colter was ordained into the Gospel ministry. He oversees the Youth ministries at CBCNixa, and provides oversight with regard to the evangelistic activities of the church.
Lead Pastor - Larry Pauley
At the beginning of 2015, Calvary Bible Church of Nixa, MO, extended an invitation to Rev. Larry Pauley to be our lead pastor. He has spent more than four decades preaching the Word of God and shepherding congregations under the direction of the Lord Jesus. Pastor Larry has long held 1 Timothy 1:12 as his life's verse: "I thank him who has given me strength, Christ Jesus our Lord, because he judged me faithful, appointing me to his service.” Larry and his wife, Janet, have been honored to be used of God in several countries, which included a lengthy pastorate in Rockford, IL, before moving to the Ozarks.
