Calvin McKinney is Pastor of the Calvary Baptist Church of North Jersey, Garfield, New Jersey, where he has served since June, 1972. While administering an ever-expanding ministry, Dr. McKinney enjoys a full preaching ministry that has taken him throughout this country, as well as the continents of Africa, Europe, Asia, Central America, and the Caribbean Islands. In addition to being honored to preach in many of the "Famed Pulpits" in at least 30 of these 50 United States, one of his most memorable opportunities came during the Centennial Session of his beloved National Baptist Convention, U.S.A., Inc., in Birmingham, Alabama in 1980.

In September, 2009, Dr. McKinney was elected General Secretary of the National Baptist Convention, U.S.A., Inc.
Pastor McKinney's undergraduate work was completed at the William Paterson University in Wayne, NJ, and his graduate studies were completed through the National Theological Seminary and College in Baltimore, Maryland, where he was also honored with a Doctorate of Humane Letters Degree.
In 2003, led by the vision given by God, Pastor McKinney guided the people of God called Calvary in the construction of a $10M state-of-the-art edifice. Because of his visionary leadership, on March 19, 2006 the people of Calvary entered their new home, a 1,500 seat sanctuary, which includes educational, fellowship and administrative complexes; all to the glory of God, the edification of fellow believers and the salvation of humankind.
Under the visionary leadership of Pastor McKinney, Calvary is known for its humanitarian outreach to those in need. In 1998, the Calvary Community Development Center was established to bridge the economic, social and political gap, which exists in our community. The CCDC provides clothing, food and emergency assistance to those in need.
He and his wife Brendalyn are the proud parents of three children: Terence Lamar, Gina Lynelle, and Calvin James; and the proud grandparents of Terence Laquan, Timothy Lamar and Mason James.

Church History

calvaryofgarfield.org, $reference.date [cached]

In June of 1972, the call was extended to Passaic native, Calvin McKinney to serve as the tenth pastor of Calvary Baptist Church. To this date, his tenure is the longest in our church's history, a period which will now span 40 years in 2012.

For over 33 years under Pastor McKinney, we labored to leave our Moab and journey to our Promised Land. And, in July of 2003, we stepped in the Jordan with the water to our waist and the Promised Land in clear view. On March 19, 2006 we left our old home, originally purchased for $3,500, and moved into our new $10 million dollar, state-of-the-art edifice. "To God be the glory for the great things He has done", and continues to do in the life of Calvary Baptist Church of North Jersey at Garfield, this all under the dynamic pastoral leadership of Pastor McKinney.
For almost 40 years, since assuming the pastoral duties of Calvary Baptist Church of North Jersey at Garfield, Pastor McKinney continues to work diligently to lead Calvary in becoming a viable Christian witness or, as he would put it, "the light of the world and the salt of the earth". Because of his visionary leadership, we, the Calvary family, are helping to raise the village around us; becoming a "Contagious Congregation", allowing our "contagiousness" to spread in the surrounding communities, while remaining "steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, for as much as ye know that (our) labor in not in vain in the Lord."
