Senior Pastor, John David, “JD,” Punch, is a native of Birmingham, AL. He, along with his beautiful bride Amy, have been married for 16 years. They have been richly blessed through the gift of their three children: Jake (14), Tyler (12), and Emma (10).
JD and his family recently moved here from Denver, CO and are currently loving the mitten state and enjoying Holland, MI. He is an avid reader (non-fiction only), enjoys playing the guitar, coaching, and playing sports (increasingly more of the former and less of the latter). Going on coffee dates with his wife is a highlight to any day.
Prior to his time here at Calvary, JD served churches in Denver, Boston, Virginia Beach, in addition to Birmingham with roles including: worship leader, youth pastor, associate pastor, and senior pastor.
JD has a Ph.D. in New Testament Theology from Radboud University Nijmegen (Netherlands), Master of Theology from the University of Pretoria (South Africa), Master of Arts in Biblical Studies from Birmingham Theological Seminary, and a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Alabama.
