Get to know Pastor Paul

Paul Calaway - Lead Pastor

Pastor Paul began attending Fundamental Baptist Church at the age of two. His dad led him to the Lord in their home at the age of 18 on July 2, 2000. He married his high school sweetheart, Katherine, on November 2, 2002. The Lord has blessed them with four boys: Joshua, Jacob, Jason and James.


Pastor Paul is a 2004 graduate of Heartland Baptist Bible College in Oklahoma City, where he obtained a Bachelor of Arts diploma in Biblical studies with an emphasis on pastoral studies. In November 2013, he received his master’s degree in Christian Counseling from Baptist College of America. In July 2015, he was awarded an honorary Doctorate of Divinity from Lone Star Baptist College. He has served as chaplain for the Alvarado Police Department since October 2015 and for the Texas Department of Public Safety since June 2018.


Fundamental Baptist Church has a very special place in the Calaways’ hearts. It is where Mrs. Katherine was saved, where they were each baptized, where they each surrendered to God’s call upon their lives to His ministry, where they were married, where they dedicated their sons to the Lord, where Pastor Paul was ordained to the Gospel ministry, and where God has now called Paul to pastor.

What an honor it is for God to place us here! We are so very humbled. – Dr. & Mrs. Paul Calaway
