Pastor C.J. Hoyle & Lady Shawnetta HoyleFounder and Pastor: Elder C.J. Hoyle

Born on October 6th, 1987, Elder C.J. Hoyle is a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ who is committed to bringing healing to hurting people, by pointing them to Calvary. Since repenting of his sins, being baptized in the name of Jesus and being filled with the Holy Ghost with the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues at the age of 14, Elder Hoyle has been walking with Jesus with a desire to solely please Him. Two months after experiencing salvation in 2002, Elder Hoyle acknowledged his call to preach the gospel and since that day has been engaging in active ministry for the last sixteen years. Currently, Elder Hoyle serves as the founder and pastor of Calvary Apostolic Community Church in Fredericksburg, VA, which recently turned 2 years old in August 2018.

Elder Hoyle is also a graduate of Johnson C. Smith University (Class of 2009) where he received a B.A. in Psychology as well as Liberty University (Class of 2015) where he received a M.A. in Marriage and Family Therapy. Elder Hoyle is also preparing to complete his Master of Theological Studies degree from Liberty University (2019) in an effort to continue to walk worthy of the vocation that he has been called to. Additionally, Elder Hoyle received theological education from the W.L. Bonner College (Columbia, SC) in 2008 as well as Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary (Charlotte, NC) from 2009-2011, prior to entering the pastorate. On a more personal note, Elder Hoyle is happily married to Lady Shawnetta Hoyle (9 years) and is the proud father of three precious children (Aaliyah:7, Autumn:4 and Cayden:7 months). His family is certainly a high priority to him and always will be. The life and ministry of this servant of the Lord can be summed up in the belief that “if I am who God wants me to be, he will teach me what he wants me to know and help me to do what he wants me to do”.
