Rev. Victor T. Hall, Sr. has been the pastor of Calvary Baptist Church in Jamaica (Queens), New York since 1990. Prior to his call to Calvary, he was the pastor of New Hope Baptist Church, the oldest African-American Christian Witness in Dallas, Texas.
Pastor Hall was licensed to preach by the Rev. Dr. E. K. Bailey and Concord Missionary Baptist Church in Dallas. He was ordained by the Eastern Baptist Association and the Rev. Dr. Harry S. Wright, Sr., at Cornerstone Baptist Church in Brooklyn, where he was a student minister for three years. He served as Associate Minister at the Union Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia, and worked as Staff Assistant on the Black Theology Project in New York. .
The Reverend James P. Quincy, III is one of our nation’s premiere youth ministers. For over a decade he has advocated for full-time youth ministers, while serving congregations in Massachusetts, Michigan and New York. He is a hands-on youth minister. Inasmuch as he is often sought after to preach and speak around the country, Rev. Quincy spends most of his time with the youth at his local church.
He has ministered in the Bahamas, Barbados, Canada, Jamaica, Mexico and South Africa. He has addressed the Pastors of the Progressive National Baptist Convention, the Presidents of the Black College Convention and introduced Vice President Al Gore. Yet, he is generally seen in the church parking lot playing basketball with the youth, chatting with students a block from the church, or teaching and preaching to small and large gatherings of youth. Rev. Quincy’s hands-on approach has won him great success with children and youth.
