Founding Pastors, Bobby and Linda Calvert moved from Indiana to Fort Myers in 1976, both having served the Lord since their pre-teen years with a desire to be used of God. Shortly after being married in 1966, they began Preaching, Singing & Spreading the Gospel. Before coming to Florida, they evangelized full time, then returned to their home church to establish a Christian School.
After seeing repeated visions of Sonshine Church and Sonshine Christian Academy in Fort Myers, Pastor & Sister Calvert left everything, loaded their family and moved to Fort Myers to bring to reality the vision God had shown them. Today, the challenging weekend services, Christian school with 300 students, various Sonshine ministries in action, prove God is truly working in and through Sonshine.
We invite you to see for yourself just how exciting church can be when the focus is simple and the people are free to pursue God with a passion!
Pastor Calvert has served as Lead Pastor of Sonshine since it’s inception in 1976.
