We want to invite you to the 2023 CCA TX/OK South Conference, March 2 – 4. This year’s theme is “Press On.”
In Philippians 3:12, Paul said, “Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.“
The world is getting darker and darker and it’s getting harder and harder to fight the good fight of the faith. Nonetheless, God calls us to press on.
Press On is a conference for everyone! We encourage pastors to invite staff, ministry leaders, volunteers, and just anyone in their congregation who would like to go deeper in their walk with Jesus!
This conference promises to be one of our best conferences ever! You will be encouraged and challenged by the teaching this year, and the time of worship together will be uplifting, and the fellowship will be sweet!
There are a variety of workshop topics this year including: Children’s Church Ministry, Youth Ministry, Worship Ministry, Safety/Security Ministry, and Multimedia Ministry.
We really hope you plan on attending this year. It’s going to be a great year as we press on for our Savior.
We have a great line-up of speakers for the upcoming conference. Don’t miss this important time together as we gather for worship, long needed fellowship, and practical teaching that reminds of how and why we are doing what we do. I hope to see you here!
Who is Pastor Lloyd Pulley?
Lloyd Pulley has served as Senior Pastor of Calvary Chapel Old Bridge (CCOB) in central New Jersey for over 35 years.
He received a call to ministry as his sophomore year was ending, leading him to travel to Southern California to participate in a summer project for CRU. He then joined the ministry at Calvary Chapel West Covina, now Calvary Chapel Golden Springs. While interning at Calvary Chapel Golden Springs beginning in 1979, Lloyd met and married his wife Karen, and soon the couple had two small children.
Making their way from California to New Jersey in 1984, the humble beginnings of home-based Bible studies and fellowship soon saw unprecedented growth and development of the people who call CCOB their home church.
Pastor Lloyd and his wife Karen have two children (one with the Lord) and five grandchildren.
Who is Pastor Art Reyes?
Pastor Art stepped out to plant a home bible study in Rosemead, CA in 2014. Soon after it became known as Alive Christian Fellowship, a young vibrant church that began to grow and meet the needs in San Gabriel Valley.
Currently Pastor Art is the Senior Pastor at Calvary Chapel Downey. He has a passion for the exposition of God’s Word and a desire to see lives transformed because of it.
He serves the Lord joined by his wife Briana, and two kids, Caleb and Micah.
Who is Pastor Bill Gehm?
Pastor Bill has been the Senior Pastor of Grace Church, Calvary Chapel Amarillo, since 1985. Bill’s number one focus has always been to feed God’s people with God’s word.
Bill and his wife Cindy have been married for over 46 years, and they have three grown children and ten grandchildren.
Bill enjoys various outdoor activities such as riding his motorcycle, camping and working in the yard with his wife. His greatest hobby is reading the Word of God.
Who is Pastor Ron Arbaugh?
Pastor Ron spent the first 39 years of his life running away from Jesus Christ. Finally, on February 17, 1991, while running away from home because of the shame of admitting his sins to his wife and 2 children (Ronnie & Terry), he fell to his knees on a public street in Upland, California. From that day forward, his life has never been the same!
Calvary Chapel of San Antonio began when God spoke to Ron’s heart on March 4, 1994, saying, “Begin to pray for the people of San Antonio.” Although he and his wife, Paula, had never been to Texas, never wanted to go to Texas, and knew no one in Texas, God’s call was unmistakable. After Ron graduated from Calvary Chapel Bible College, he took his family and headed for Texas in a truck that cost $1. The first home Bible study took place on May 31, 1995.
Their ministry has now expanded in ways which can only be described as miraculous. South Texas is responding to simple, verse-by-verse Bible teaching by falling more in love with Jesus every day!
Who is Pastor Ron Hindt?
Pastor Ron Hindt is the senior pastor at Calvary Houston. Born and raised in southern California, he spent several years as a rock musician in the Hollywood/LA area.
In 1980, Pastor Ron joined Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa under Pastor Chuck Smith. He later served as an assistant pastor at Calvary Chapel Pacific Hills, California for several years.
Pastor Ron moved to Houston and founded Calvary Houston in 1991. What started as a small home fellowship, focused on contemporary worship and expositional teaching of the Bible, now serves thousands of people each week.
The vision of Calvary Houston is to Worship the Lord, Win the Lost, Disciple the Saints, and Send the Equipped. He and his wife, Yani, have a blended family with three grown children, two adopted children together, and two grandchildren.
The ministry of Calvary Houston has expanded to include daily radio broadcasts of Pastor Ron’s unique, expositional style of teaching. These half-hour broadcasts known as “Larger Than Life,” are aired daily throughout the United States.
