Mitar Steven Rudanovic
Mitar was born and raised in New Jersey and became a Christian in college. He attended Rutgers University and played football for the Scarlet Knights. The Lord began to galvanize a desire for ministry while there. Mitar is married to his precious wife Megan. They have three kids – Mitar, Annalyse and Natalija. Mitar served on the pastoral staff for 8 1/2 years for a local church in New Jersey. Then the Lord called him to Seminary. He graduated from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in May of 2020. He was called to be pastor of Calvary Baptist Church in October of 2020. He loves his family, anything related to Rutgers football, and Chick-Fil-A.
Upon moving from Louisville with their four school-aged children in 1995, Jeff and Mary joined Calvary. Before coming to Calvary, Jeff had served in several other churches as an instrumentalist, the worship leader and as Deacon. Jeff was saved as part of the “Jesus Movement” revival of the 1970’s. He has served Calvary as the worship leader, a Deacon, and a four-year period as the interim pastor. Jeff graduated from the University of Louisville in 1995 and is completing his M-Div. degree at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville. Three of Jeff and Mary’s children are married and have given them seven grandchildren. Jeff’s favorite Scripture is Philippians 1:21, where Paul declares, “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.”
