MOUNT PLEASANT, Iowa—Calvary Baptist Church has called Zach Fischer as its pastor. He and his wife, Amber, and their family moved from Clarion, Iowa, to Mount Pleasant Jan. 13 and were officially welcomed to the church the following Sunday.

That morning the pastors and deacons prayed for the family, and that evening the congregation shared with the family a variety of gifts.

The church says, “We are thankful for God’s sovereignty and care for us as a church over the past two and a half years, and we look forward to seeing what God has in store for us in this new phase of life as a church.”
