About Us


Danny Ovalle is a graduate of Calvary Chapel Bible College in Southern California and was called to be our pastor at our 328th annual meeting in February 2011. Born in New York City, raised in the Projects of Chelsea, MA and converted at a Billy Graham Crusade (while sitting in his seat), Danny has been involved in pastoral ministry and church planting over the past 30 years. He currently resides in Bradford, MA with his wife Cyndie and 2 daughters, Samantha and Emma. The God-given passion of his life is to know, experience and share the knowledge and enjoyment of Jesus Christ above all things and in all things!

Some of his favorites: his bride and two princesses, the Holy Bible, the beach, Red Sox Nation, Minnesota Vikings, bold coffee, Martin Luther's Commentary on Galatians (Declaration), George Whitefield's Journals, and John Calvin's Definition of FAITH.

(Section 3 of Institutes of the Christian Religion)
