About Jim Raley
Jim Raley is the senior pastor of Calvary Christian Center, a vibrant, spirit-filled church located in the greater Daytona Beach, Florida area where he lives with his wife Dawn, two daughters, Courtney and Channing, and son, Payton. A humble, genuine leader and devoted husband and father, Pastor Raley is relentless when it comes to preaching the Word of God, driven to reach both the local and global communities with the love and message of Jesus Christ.
Since Pastor Raley arrived at Calvary in 1997, it has become one of the fastest-growing churches in the Southeast, growing from a small core group to the family of thousands that it is today. A highly sought-after speaker, his honest, down-to-earth approach and powerful communication skills make him a favorite guest speaker among conferences and conventions, as well as in churches across the globe. He regularly appears on several Christian television shows and radio programs. His own show, Jim Raley TV, is aired weekly both nationally and internationally and his sermons are broadcast live on the internet.
Throughout his years of ministry, Pastor Raley has placed a strong emphasis on global missions, and has helped to build churches all over the world. He has also made the local community a priority, consistently reaching out to homeless and impoverished men, women and children of the greater Daytona Beach area.
Although his ministry and sphere of influence have grown substantially through his years of service, Pastor Jim Raley’s focus has remained the same: to hold nothing back, to give all he’s got to win the lost and boldly teach the Word of God to people around the world.
