John Pillivant

Senior Pastor of CC Bartlett

Pastor John was raised Roman Catholic, but became born again when he was 15 years old. Almost immediately he began leading worship for youth group and over time and God’s leading, he became the worship leader and Youth Pastor of Calvary Chapel Westminster, CA. After serving there for 11 years and being led to move his growing family to the Memphis area, in 1995 he began Calvary Chapel Bartlett in their home. Through slow yet steady growth the church moved to a YWCA, then rented space in a storefront, and eventually purchased land and built a building, where we currently worship and serve Jesus to this day.

“I am overly blessed to be married to Amanda, for over 30 years, and to have two wonderful sons – young men who love Jesus. I know that we live in perilous times, yet I also know the One who holds the future and has all things in His hands!”
