Senior Pastor David Caldwell of Santa Clarita Baptist Church in Canyon Country, CA

David Caldwell
Senior Pastor

I grew up going to church and believed I was a Christian but never understood the biblical truth about sin and the need for forgiveness. In 2003, by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, and for the glory of God alone, God took out my heart of stone and gave me a heart of flesh and saved me.

I received my Master of Divinity from The Master’s Seminary (2016). I was an associate pastor in Ankeny, Iowa from 2017-2020, and I became the senior pastor at SCBC in August 2020.

I grew up in Missouri Valley, Iowa. My wife, Christy, and I were married in 1993 and we have 3 children. I love to watch sporting events, spend quality time with my wife and kids (pizza-movie night on Friday nights!), and read books on theology.
