Our Pastor, David K. Caruthers
Pastor Caruthers graduated from Texas Bible College in 1984. He and his wife, Gena, have been married for 34 years and have two adult children and their spouses serving at Calvary Church. Nathan and Lauren, and Ashley and her husband Aaron. Both are licensed ministers with the UPCI.
Throughout his ministry, Pastor Caruthers has been active in various facets of ministry such as associate pastor, outreach director, young marrieds director, private education principal, and pastoral administrator. He and his wife have pastored in Taylor, Texas; Raymondville, Texas; Baytown, Texas; and now in San Antonio, Texas. The Caruthers feel, without a doubt, that God has prepared them for this time and this place. The city and the people of San Antonio have captured their hearts.
Pastor Caruthers and Gena have always pastored as a team. Gena is Calvary's praise and worship leader, ladies director, and marriage and family enrichment teacher. You won't be around her long without feeling her passion for God's work. Believing in each other, holding onto God, and following their dreams has helped them become who they are today.
In September 1998 Pastor Caruthers was afforded the opportunity to pursue his dream of returning to college for his secular degree. After attending the University of Texas, McCombs School of Business, Pastor Caruthers graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration, Master of Professional Accounting and successfully achieved the goal of becoming a Certified Public Accountant. Pastor Caruthers was previously employed as Chief Financial Officer of a large local not for profit that provided community services and workforce solutions. Now Pastor Caruthers's accounting firm focuses on consulting and assurance services for churches, ministers, and other not for profits. His accounting firm also teaches personal and church financial seminars. He also serves as the South Texas UPCI Stewardship representative. The UPCI Stewardship team offers assistance with church financial and construction services. Please feel free to contact Pastor Caruthers to discuss any of these services.
With ministry and the love for people always being the Caruthers' heartbeat, they are excited and thankful to have the opportunity to pastor Calvary Church in San Antonio, Texas! "A Place For New Beginnings"
