Calvary Chapel Johnson City began like many Calvary Chapels do, very simplistic, from an active home fellowship. This church began in 1997 in the home of Pastor Rob Kayser, a native of CA. Generally with no outside support, the pastor looks to God for the church support. As Calvary Chapel’s most Senior Pastor Chuck Smith is fond of saying “Where the Lord guides, the Lord provides.” A common mark of Calvary Chapels is a commitment to expository teaching, verse-by-verse, through each book of the Bible. This approach ultimately provides teaching of the whole counsel of God to the body of Christ. Calvary Chapel Johnson City does not attempt to compete with any other local church, but desires to work together as the body of Christ to reach all people.
Pastor Rob Kayser
Rob was saved at the age of twenty-three in 1976 at Calvary Chapel of San Diego. The Lord provides Rob strength through a committed life of prayer, studying His Word and through his family – Janice, his wife, and daughters Kristina and Natalie. Rob and his family share a deep heart for missions. Pastor Rob attended the Calvary Chapel school of evangelism, the U.S. Center for World Missions and dedicated training with International Teams. As a result he has subsequently served on the foreign mission field several times. He has been blessed to be a part of church plants in Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, and St Lucia in the West Indies. While he and Janice presently serve in the Johnson City community, they are also blessed to have their daughter Kristina to be serving with Shevet Achim in Israel, and their youngest daughter, Natalie, serving with Calvary Chapel in Peru.
