Congregation Celebrates Pastor’s Birthday and Ministry Anniversary

XENIA, Ohio—Dec. 9 and 10 marked a memorable weekend for Pastor David and Diana Conrad of Calvary Baptist Church, as the congregation celebrated David’s 60th birthday, as well as the couple’s 10th anniversary of ministry at the church.

On Saturday, Dec. 9, church members, friends, and family members surprised David in the church’s fellowship hall with a birthday cake, gifts, and games. The evening continued with another surprise: honoring David and Diana for 10 years of service at Calvary Baptist.

The next day, at the conclusion of the morning worship service, Deacon Chairman Ken Ostrum presented David and Diana with a memory book filled with church members’ cards and pictures from the past 10 years of the Conrads’ ministry. The couple also received two all-expenses-paid trips: David will be traveling to Israel on a study tour, and during that time Diana will be visiting family in Florida. Diana says, “What a weekend! To God be the glory, great things He has done!”
