Pastor Christopher Reif has been our Senior Pastor since October 2017. Pastor Chris gave his life to Christ in August of 1996, while attending Fellowship Bible Church in Little Rock, Arkansas. Although originally from Little Rock, he spent over twenty years in North Carolina and in various other countries while serving in the United States Army. It was while serving as a Green Beret, stationed in North Carolina, that Pastor Chris started attending a Calvary Chapel and over the years began serving in multiple ministries there. Those ministries included: running the church's local Christian radio station, The Shield FM, and serving as a deacon, as well as going through a pastoral mentorship program and internship with the senior pastor and staff at Calvary Chapel of the Sandhills. During his time in the military he was also involved in ministry with Bikers for Christ Motorcycle Ministry, which he is still a member of today. It was during his time in motorcycle ministry that he received the call to become a pastor, and began to pursue his calling. Pastor Chris lives here in Fort Smith with his wife of 15 years, Heather Reif, his son Calvin, and his daughter McKenzie.
Joshua McLean gave his life to Christ in September 2011, while attending First Baptist Church in Branch, Arkansas. Josh was born here in Fort Smith and lived in Branch for 19 years before moving to Paris, Arkansas where he has lived since. While attending First Baptist Church in Branch, Josh started to get more involved with things within the church and programs that were happening there. In 2015 Josh began attending Calvary Frontlines and has felt a calling to serve the Lord in whatever way he was needed.
