John Durante

Pastor John was born and raised in Brick, NJ, was saved as a young adult and attended Calvary Chapel Bible College in California before returning home to New Jersey. Beginning in 2006 with a handful of believers in his home, John has helped build the congregation into the thriving church that it is today. John's approach to preaching is straightforward. He believes in expositional, line-by-line studies of scripture in order to develop relationships between people and the Bible.

The result is a rich exploration of the Word of God and what it means in your life, allowing His people to learn the lessons of the Bible the way He wants them to learn it. John rejects systematic theologies that divide Christians into boxes and strives to bring people together through relationships with God and with each other.

John also believes in raising people up and giving people opportunities to serve and minister to others, thereby growing the church from the ground up, not the top down.

What To Expect

What is a Calvary service like?

At Jersey Shore Calvary Chapel you will find a loving Christian family that is ready to welcome you with open arms.

Our goal at JSCC is to praise Jesus and to understand His Word. Each service is approximately sixty minutes. We start every service praising our Lord through songs. We sing five songs, greet one another, read Scripture, pray and study the Bible together. We teach through the books of the Bible chapter-by-chapter, verse-by-verse.
