Planted by God In 2013
Calvary Wolfeboro is a local church in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, that began in July of 2013. Since our inception, we have lived by the same convictions that defined the early church. This part of who we are is historical.
It was only weeks after Jesus had ascended to heaven that the Church was birthed. A work of the Holy Spirit beginning on the Jewish holiday of Pentecost, the supernatural beginnings of the church were obvious. People were being healed, speaking in languages they had never learned, and proclaiming the “good news” about Jesus and forgiveness of sins through belief in Him. The book of Acts records these early days. Very quickly thousands of people became followers of Jesus and therefore members of the Church. These early followers would gather together and “devote themselves” to 4 things (Acts 2:42):
1. The apostle’s teaching (We devote ourselves to the Bible’s teaching)
2. The fellowship (We gather with one another in homes and elsewhere to build relationships with each other and to encourage one another.
3. Breaking of bread (We seek to have meals together as well as Communion or the Lord’s Supper)
4. Prayers (This is simply communication with God)
Every week when we gather, whether it’s in homes to share a meal together or at 43 Mill Street for worship, we seek to rediscover what happens when a church functions based on the model the early church gave us.
Whether you are a follower of Jesus but aren’t a part of a local body or you are not a follower of Jesus yet but feel a tug on your heart, we want you to know that you are welcome here. Jesus loves you and we do our best to be like Him.
For His Glory,

Justin Marbury - Senior Pastor
During the summer of 2012, Justin and his family, at that time living in Albuquerque New Mexico, recognized a calling to New England to be involved in the work that God is doing here. It was, initially, the prompting of his pastor, Skip Heitzig, that started the ball rolling as he suggested to Justin that he seriously consider planting a church in New England. Through the various ways that God speaks, He confirmed that same summer, that this was the plan for Justin, his wife Kari, and four children Mia, Lis, Seth, and Tait. Not knowing yet exactly where God would plant Justin and his family they began seeking guidance for the place. Eventually it was clear that Wolfeboro is where God had for Justin to pastor.
A year later, in May of 2013, Justin was formerly commissioned and sent off from Calvary Albuquerque to the Granite State and Wolfeboro.
A staff pastor at Calvary Albuquerque for 7 years, Justin received his pastoral training within the context of ministry in a church of 14,000+. Sitting under one of the great Bible teachers of our time, Skip Heitzig, God has firmly rooted Justin in the discipline of Bible study and preaching expositionally. With various ministry responsibilities in Albuquerque, including Youth Detention ministry, Men’s ministry, officiating weddings, funerals, teaching classes in the school of ministry, and a broad range of counseling, Justin is blessed to have had so much opportunity in such a short period of time.
Our pastor’s greatest desire to is to be led by the Holy Spirit and find Jesus Christ to say at the end of his life, “Well done, good and faithful servant.”
