Prior to coming to minister in the Bahamas, Pastor Elliott pastored two Associated Gospel Church (AGC) congregations in Toronto, Canada. These two Canadian senior pastorates spanned 20 years.

He also provided AGC denominational leadership at the regional level for Canada East.

Pastor Elliott served as the senior pastor of the Milford Bible Church 2008 – early 2015.

Milford, Pennsylvania is located in the Delaware Water Gap tourist region in the Pocono Mountains one and a half hours north west of New York City.

During his time in Milford he became an American citizen to be able to enjoy dual citizenship Canadian / American. It was also during this time that he wrote his book, Disciples by Design.

He has ministered the Word of God in Antigua, Thailand, India, the USA, Canada and now in the beautiful Bahamas.

Pastor Elliott enjoys Facebook, gardening, SCUBA diving, history, bargain hunting at yard sales & thrift stores, tennis, golf, hockey & humour.

He uses these bridges to enjoy time with the lost in order to earn a hearing for the good news of salvation from sin being in Jesus Christ alone.  He is an evangelist at heart.

His expository preaching was recognized as a senior at Dallas Seminary. He was ranked 5th in his class with respect to the Harry A. Ironside Expository Preaching Award.

Pastor Elliott has the passion to make the Word of God known in such a way that the glory of Christ may be clearly seen.  One of his life goals is to preach or teach through every verse of the Bible.  By God’s grace, he currently is about 70% of the way to that goal.

A few of his favorite preachers are Alistair Begg, John MacArthur & Joe Stowell.

Pastor Elliott’s preference is to exposit God’s Word week by week, verse by verse, chapter by chapter, Book by Book. This let’s God raise the sermon topics & it encourages God’s people to the proper conclusions that the Bible is a revelation & not a concealment and that THEY can observe, interpret & apply the Word as THEY apply themselves in dependence on the Holy Spirit.

Under Christ as Lord, Pastor Elliott desires to servant-lead the Incredible Body of Christ called Calvary Bible Church, Nassau Bahamas to LOVING & FOLLOWING JESUS & TELLING OTHERS ABOUT HIM.

When you visit Calvary Bible, please be sure to introduce yourself to Pastor & Mrs. Elliott! They will be delighted!

AnthoneAnthone Wallace

Minister of Music and Worship

Anthone Romel Wallace is the fifth of six children, and only son born to Perry and Marjorie Wallace on December 28, 1973. It was during his early education (Uriah McPhee Primary School) years that his interest in music began to blossom. He attended high school at Saint Augustine’s College where he graduated with honors in 1991. As Anthone’s gift for music was determined early in life, in 1990 he was afforded a scholarship through The Lyford Cay Foundation to further enhance his musical skills by attending a summer camp at the Interlochen Arts Academy (Interlochen, Michigan).

Anthone was raised with Christian values, and was about eight years old when he received Jesus Christ as his Lord and personal Savior.  At the age of thirteen, he became one of the founding members of the Gospel singing group, Nu Generation, and he began to develop an interest in songwriting and vocal arranging. His desire for serving the Lord became more evident as he became involved in various church ministries. However, his greatest contributions were made in the area of music ministry as a choir director and worship leader. His great appreciation for music ministry extended to also include directing the United Choir of the Assemblies of Brethren in The Bahamas. In February 1999, the Lord opened the door for Anthone to join the staff at Calvary Bible Church as Minister of Music and Worship through the encouragement of Senior Pastor Emeritus Allan R. Lee, with whom he served for nearly fifteen years.

Under the oversight of the Sr. Pastor and in concert with the Music and Worship Team, Anthone is responsible for the overall music ministry of CBC. This includes corporate worship service planning, worship leading, music education, administration and promotion.

Primarily, the main goal is to develop a music ministry at every ability and participation level that trains and challenges God’s people toward excellence, and enhance the musical expression of the church through blended worship.

Secondarily, our goal is to develop musical and worship ministries in accordance with Calvary Bible Church’s purpose to promote Christian maturity, equip our people for ministry and reach the lost for Christ.

Anthone’s life verse is “I have been crucified with Christ: it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me”. – Galatians 2:20

Anthone and his bride, Marissa, were married on November 22, 2003. They are blessed with three beautiful children – Anna, Jude and Kayla.

 

Nick 2Nicholas Rogers

Youth Pastor

Nicholas was born in Nassau and grew up attending Calvary Bible Church. When he graduated from high school, he stayed in Nassau to work. Shortly after that, he began volunteering with the Jr. High ministry at CBC. Around that time, he met Mark Hall, the Word of Life missionary for the Caribbean. He spent a part of the next two summers volunteering in Bermuda. During those trips, he felt called to go into ministry.

Ready to further his education, he attended Word Of Life Bible Institute in Hudson, Florida.


 After graduation, he returned home, not sure of what the Lord would have him do next. The Lord led him and his soon to be wife, Tamsin, to Spanish Wells, where they spent 7 years serving at The People’s Church.

On December 31st, 2010, the Lord blessed them with a beautiful baby girl, Mercie Analise. Shortly after Mercie’s birth, the Lord started working in their lives to move them away from Spanish Wells. They were privileged to spend time working at Camp Bahamas Ministries in Savannah Sound, Eleuthera, before moving to Nassau to work at CBC.

Nicholas’ main goal in ministry is to raise up young people who love the Lord and are equipped to serve Him wherever He calls them. Nicholas’ nickname in his graduating year book is listed as “White Chocolate”
