Calvary Baptist church of Sun Prairie has had three pastors over its 40+ year ministry. Most recently Charles Johnston retired and stepped down from the pastoral position. On Sunday July 17, 2005 I was asked to preach for the Sunday AM service and following the service the church body voted to call Pastor Scott Estell as their new pastor. Brother Estell with his wife Cindy and five children will be coming to take up that ministry by the end of August.
Brother Estell is currently the Associate Pastor at Tri-Lakes Baptist Church in Brighton, Michigan. He graduated from Maranatha Baptist Bible College in Watertown and has completed his M.Div. degree at Detroit Baptist Theological Seminary and is also working on his Th.M. degree as this time. Cindy (Frieling) Estell is from Wisconsin where her parents live in the Fort Atkinson area.
We rejoice with Calvary Baptist church and welcome the Estell family to our state and state fellowship. Our anticipation is that the fifth decade of the Calvary Baptist Church will be one of continued growth and blessing under the leadership of their new pastor.
