Pastor Vince

OUR PASTOR

Dr. Vince Hairston

"The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing, and the main thing is Jesus!" 

On November 11, 1985, during his freshman year in college, Pastor Vince gave his life to Christ on the campus of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (A&T). He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in History Education from A&T in 1989, graduating with honors. Pastor Vince preached his initial sermon in 1988 at Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church, his home church in Cascade, Virginia. 

Having served faithfully under two great generals of the faith, during his college years, Pastor Vince joined Evangel Fellowship Church of God in Christ under the leadership of the late Bishop Otis Lockett, Sr. In 1990, he joined Mount Zion Baptist Church, under the leadership of Bishop George Brooks. Pastor Vince was ordained in 1992 by the Guilford Missionary Baptist Association. 

Pastor Vince married Attorney Cheryl Jackson in December of 1992, and God has blessed them to have four amazing children, Christian, Christianna, Christopher, and Christoff, all now young adults. He joined the staff of Mount Zion in 1993, serving as Christian Education Director and later Pastor of Adult Ministries. In 1996, Pastor Vince earned a Master's Degree in Education Administration and Supervision from A&T. 

The winds of change began to blow in Pastor Vince's life, in September of 2000. God told him that it was time for him to go forth to shepherd part of His flock. In line with God's call, Pastor Vince started Calvary Christian Center on January 7, 2001. With a core group of seven individuals, God laid out the vision for Calvary. Then God began to place within Calvary every gift and talent needed to advance His kingdom here on earth. In 2006, Pastor Vince planted Calvary Christian Center East and in 2009 Calvary Southwest, both now independent, autonomous bodies. In November of 2011, 369 Air Harbor Road was purchased, the present home of Calvary Christian Center. In 2020, this property became debt free as the mortgage was eradicated.

In May of 2022, Pastor Vince earned the Doctor of Philosophy degree in Leadership Studies from A&T, making him a "Triple Aggie!" In his spare time, he delves in the vintage furniture business. Pastor Vince is a man of integrity who believes that being taught the Word of God is what causes believers to mature and make a difference.
