Karl McCallister, Sr. Pastor
In 2002, Karl became the pastor at Faith Church to pursue God’s vision of covenantal discipleship. After more than 30+ years of ministry, Karl continues to be passionate about the Word of God, making disciples and relationships. He is thankful for the influence of Columbia International University – for the training through his Doctor of Ministry he earned and meeting his wife Cyndi. Karl and Cyndi have been married since 1985. Their family has grown up and left the nest and each has begun making their own nest: Micah & Sarah, Jesse & Joanna, and Ian. Karl and Cyndi enjoy their precious granddaughter, Della and look forward to the arrival of their grandson this summer. Although the kids are gone, Cyndi continues to be involved as an educator with Classical Conversations. When not piddling at his workbench in the garage or working in the yard, Karl can be found passionately pursuing the “runner up” to the national bird. Even when it’s not turkey season, he is thinking about that next bird.
