Our Pastor


Pastor Stephen and Mary Jane Battista


     Thank you for visiting our web site.  My Name is Pastor Stephen Battista, Lead Pastor at Calvary Assembly of God Church Merced, CA.  My wife Mary Jane and I are so excited, and blessed as we begin this journey with the body of Christ at Calvary.

     I have been in ministry since 1983, ordained with the Assemblies of God in May of 2000.  We are blessed to be a part of this great fellowship.

     I do have a diverse back ground, spending 20 years in the United States Navy, 13 years in Law Enforcement, along with my years in ministry.

Mary Jane and I  have two Adult Children, Andrew and Stephanie, and two grand children. 

     I graduated from Bethany University in 1995, and returned to the west coast from South Carolina in 2014.  It is great to be back on the west coast!

   It would be my pleasure to speak with you, and share with you our visions and dreams for this body of believers.
