Pastor Art Dykstra Leaving Calvary Chapel Announcement 05/28/17 With Dave Dodge

Yesterday Associate Pastor Art Dykstra announced he was leaving Calvary Chapel in a discussion with Pastor Dave Dodge. He stated he was moving to another church nearby. And this move was in the works for some time.

Art Dykstra was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest of Canada. He formed his ideas about God through a legalistic faction of a reformed church. The emphasis appeared to me to be on a stern God who was distant.

After leaving that church in his teen years, he discovered a relationship with Jesus in a wonderful Baptist church. However, it wasn’t until his college years that he discovered the fullness of the Holy Spirit in a charismatic church.

Prior to college, he ran into a few difficulties while backpacking in Asia that stemmed from living a compromising lifestyle. Read more here. The full video is here.

In our opinion – this friendly chat sounded more like a PR session or corporate damage control. Regardless we wish Pastor Art great success with his new ministry.

This house of GOD that Pastor Danny built is empty without him. Don’t forget friends – If it were not for Danny Hodges this facility would not be Calvary Chapel St. Petersburg! 😉

    Was anyone else amazed by Pastor Dave’s statement on Sunday 5/28/17 of the 3 men who influenced his Christian walk the most? After trusting him as his right hand man for so many years, Pastor Danny didn’t make the cut, yet Sebastian Dortch DID? Makes you wonder if the seed for Sebastian’s takeover of Danny’s pulit wasn’t planted this weekend.

    1. Possibly ole Dave was one of the 3 that initiated the pastor serve investigation?

  3. V

    Yes. Who started this pastor serve investigation? Why congregation was not aware of it?
