Jim Stowe is the assistant pastor at Calvary Chapel of Russell, PA. Following a youthful obsession with the occult, Pastor Jim came to faith in Christ as a young teenager. While feeling called to ministry at age 16, Jim set that calling aside, seeking to fulfill it by teaching Bible studies, Sunday School classes, and playing in a Christian rock band for 11 years. Unable to run from God's call any longer, Jim eventually submitted and was ordained as a Calvary Chapel pastor in April 2005. Since that time he's served at Calvary Chapel of Russell, initially in our Christian School and currently as program manager for our radio ministry, Dove-FM.
