Pastor Jim & wife Scarlett Bowles came to Calvary in June of 2015.  Coming to Columbus from Baxter Springs, KS, they quickly fell in love with the community of Columbus and the sweet fellowship at Calvary.

      They served 17 years in various Southern Baptist churches in the area of Music/Youth Ministry.  Then in 2005, Jim surrendered to God's call to serve as a pastor.  God soon brought them to southeast Kansas.

      It is their desire to see God's people thrive in their relationship with Jesus and learn to serve him in every area of their lives.
