Pastor Randy Shields
Thanks for visiting our website. I am Pastor Shields serving at Calvary Baptist Church. I am thankful for my wife and children & grandchildren in their labor for the Lord. After being saved at the age of 21, the pastor where I was a member appointed me as a deacon. About four years later the Lord began to burden my heart for missions. While at Tabernacle Baptist Bible College it was made evident that the Lord was calling me to the former USSR, Republic of Georgia. In 1991 we surrendered to go there and also did some work in other parts of the Soviet Union. After leaving the mission field, I served as pastor in Mississippi and Virginia. I began the pastorate here at Calvary in September 2005. We are grateful for those whom the Lord has saved and for those who have come to help us. The Lord has blessed us with some talented folks that love Him and want to serve Him. The Lord has richly blessed us and for that we are truly grateful.
Dear Visitor, we appreciate the opportunity to share with you some of the wonderful blessings we have experienced by God's goodness. I was married to Pastor Shields in May 1980 after graduating Chesnee High School with Business honors in 1978. After having struggled with the conviction of being a sinner, yet not accepting to repentance until Feb. 1986, was then truly born again by grace through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. After secretarial positions with Milliken, and Faucette & Rudasill Law Firm, I resigned to be keeper at home and home schooled our children Stephen and Hannah. The opportunity of serving as bookkeeper for Prayer Baptist Missions Intl was enjoyed until our call to foreign missions. In the Republic of Georgia, often without heat and water, I assisted in the worship services playing the piano and teaching a weekly Bible class until the position was filled by a national. Now at CBC, I serve as regular church pianist and clerk. We pray that you will allow the Lord to use you and follow Him to serve for His glory and praise!
|Stephen Shields and his wife Darcy came to Calvary Baptist Church in Chesnee in 2006 and have been a tremendous blessing to the work here. Like his father, Stephen is a graduate of Tabernacle Baptist Institute. He is a gifted teacher and music director and a great asset to the work at CBC.|
