George Waggoner, Senior Pastor
I would consider myself a hometown boy! I was raised in the thriving community of Orwell and graduated from Sandy Creek Central School in 1982. I was placed into the body of Christ on December 23rd, 1979, after I responded to God’s call to salvation. I was baptized and became a member of this very church when it was in Richland.
I married my wife Beth on May 23, 1987.  We heeded God’s call to train for the ministry and became students at Practical Bible Training School (now Davis College), in Johnson City, New York. Upon graduation I started my first ministry in Addison, New York at Borden Baptist Church (1994 – 2004). Then we followed the Lord’s call to Camden, New York where I served for 8 years (2004 – 2012).  After a 3-year sabbatical where I served in two interim pastoral positions, I received the call, which I accepted, to my “home church” here at Calvary Baptist Church of Pulaski. 
My wife and I have 5 children -Daniel, Josiah, Lydia, Nathan, and Sara. We also have two grandchildren, Oliver, and Annabelle. Some of my interests are hunting, fishing, birdwatching, gardening, writing, and reading.
The Lord has given me a passion to serve the body of Christ through preaching, teaching, and counseling ministries, and to reach out to those in need of the gospel. Pastor Josh and I together, have a desire to follow our Lord Jesus’ command to make disciples of all people (Matthew 28:19-20).
We are not a perfect community, but we are journeying through life together, and striving to help each other to grow in the likeness of Christ, so that “together with one voice [we can] glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Romans 15:5-7). We would love to have you stop by and worship the Lord with us, and perhaps join our growing family.
