A verse that has impacted him recently is Matthew 20:25-27 "But Jesus called them to him and said, "You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. It shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be your slave."

David Rineer

One of David’s favorite verses is Philippians 2:12-13, “Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.”

Matt Simkins

Matt enjoys family walks and bike rides, gardening and hunting. One of his favorite verses is: Galatians 6:9-10 “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. 10 So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.”

Brian Wahlberg

His hobbies include playing sports with his sons, playing with his grandchildren, waterskiing, boating, meeting new people, and going new places. Colossians 3:23-24 is a particularly meaningful passage of Scripture to Brian – "Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men; knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ." Brian and Jean’s desire is to glorify Him and give their all to Him in whatever and wherever He has them.

He attended Cedarville University in Ohio where he met his wife, Julie. Kevin and his wife Julie have been attending Calvary since 2005.

Kevin enjoys hunting, taking long road trips with his family, working on and fixing things including computers, technology, various home projects, and his old truck. James chapter 1 has always been an encouragement to Kevin, as it reminds us to remain steadfast in our faith, to be a hearer and doer of the word daily, and to encourage others to do the same. One of his life verses is Proverbs 16:9, reminding him that, “The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.” God is always in control.

Scott Finkbeiner

Lay Pastor

Scott was born and raised in the Lansdale area.  When he was 15, his family began attending Calvary Baptist Church where he heard a clear presentation of the gospel that challenged his former “head knowledge” of salvation.  At the age of 17, he trusted Christ alone for his salvation and shortly afterward committed his life to full-time ministry.  He attended Pillsbury Baptist Bible College, and later Calvary Baptist Theological Seminary where he received both his MDiv and Doctor of Ministry degrees.  He and his wife Lynda, his high school sweetheart, followed God’s call to a church in Shannock, Rhode Island, where Scott served as pastor for 31 years.  During that time, he was blessed to see many members of that small country church follow the Lord’s call to full time ministry.  After leaving Shannock, he and Lynda had the opportunity to serve Christ for nearly 3 years in East Asia, training national men for ministry and participating in ex-pat church leadership.  After returning to Calvary in 2015, Scott has been involved in teaching in the Adult Bible Fellowship program and the Sunday evening Back-to-the-Bible ministry. Scott and Lynda are the parents of four grown children, Lori, Karen, Amy, and Gregory, and are blessed with ten grandchildren.  Scott enjoys traveling with his wife, reading historical biographies, and researching his family ancestry.
