Troy Warner is pastor of Calvary Chapel Lynchburg. Troy and his family moved to Lynchburg in August 1994 to start the church with four families who had been praying for over a year for the ministry of Calvary Chapel to begin in Lynchburg.
Troy received his ministry experience as a missionary in Australia for two years and then as Assistant Pastor at Calvary Chapel Vista for five years. The heart and vision in ministry for Pastor Troy is to see a healthy body raised up that is daily fellowshipping with Jesus and, in turn, reaching out to the community of Lynchburg and the world around them.
Calvary Chapel Lynchburg was officially established in August of 1994. A small group of people had been meeting and praying for a Calvary Chapel Ministry in Lynchburg. They desired the verse-by-verse teaching of the Word of God combined with Spirit-led and Bible-based worship, for which Calvary Chapels are known.
Pastor Troy Warner had been on staff at CC Vista, California, for 4 years and was being led to step out and begin a new work in a new place. After Pastor Troy prayed and sought the Lord for guidance, he realized Lynchburg, VA was the place God wanted to send him, to the small group of people faithfully praying for such a work. On August 1, 1994, Pastor Troy and his family moved to Lynchburg to begin the simple ministry of teaching the Word of God verse-by-verse and chapter-by-chapter, while loving and leading the flock.
Since 1994, God has added to our number and blessed us with many opportunities to serve Him and proclaim the Gospel in our city and throughout the world.
