It all started when...

Pastor Eric Danner grew up in Phenix City, AL in a pastor’s home and is a fourth generation Pentecostal. At the age of eleven, after one of his father’s sermons, he found himself at the altar, surrendering to the call of God on his life to be a pastor. He consistently pursued that call throughout high school and college. He graduated from Central Bible College in Springfield, MO with a B.A. in Youth Ministries and Bible, and is now an ordained minister with the Assemblies of God.

Jackie was brought up in a Christian home and is also a fourth generation Pentecostal. She also felt the call fo God on her life at an early age and attended the University of Valley Forge in Phoenixville, PA . There, she earned a B.A. in Psychology and Christian Counseling. After college, the Lord moved Jackie down to Phenix City, AL to work for a ministry called Teen Challenge. It was there that Eric and Jackie met, fell in love and married within one year.

After serving The Lord as youth pastors, Eric and Jackie began to feel the tug to transition into Lead Pastor roles. God moved quickly and opened the door to partner with Calvary Christian Center in Ormond Beach, FL to pastor the New Smyrna Beach campus.

Pastor Eric and Jackie have two boys, Joshua and Judah.
