Pastor Bryant To Retire From Greenbrier’s Calvary Baptist (Open Celebration)
GREENBRIER TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – Calvary Baptist Church is inviting the community to celebrate the retirement of Dr Donnie Bryant who has served at Calvary for 34 years.
“Come and join us at Calvary Baptist Church MAP June 25th, 2023 as we celebrate Dr Donnie Bryant’s retirement from full-time service as Pastor with special speaker Dr. Dan Guider”.
Dr Bryant became Pastor in June of 1989 with just 12 members and 4 of them were his family.
“Over the past 35 years, the Lord has used him to impact many lives with the Preaching and Teaching of the Scriptures.”
Throughout those years Bryant has led the Calvary Baptist Church through 4 major building additions as well as several renovations of the existing buildings and has added 71/2 acres to its existing property.
“By God’s Grace and with Dr Donnie’s godly leadership we are debt free. In 2006 we began Calvary Christian Daycare and Preschool with before and after school care with transportation to and from our local elementary schools plus summer camp.”
In 2013 Calvary Baptist Church partnered with Upward Ministries to start Upward Basketball for Children K-8th grade which has been a tremendous blessing to our church and community.
“We are very thankful for the Pastoral leadership of Dr. Bryant over the years and for the sacrifices he and his family have made for the church. His plans are to do the work of an evangelist, preaching revivals and filling pulpits whenever possible.”
The Church has chosen Gary Dillard as the Senior Pastor upon Dr. Bryant’s retirement. Dillard has been at Calvary for 30 years and 25 of those years he has faithfully served as Associate Pastor and has filled many roles in the church.
“We are thankful for the leadership God has provided to follow Dr. Bryant’s tenure. Please come and visit with us at Calvary in Greenbrier as we begin a new chapter of ministry.”
