Pastor Damian is a very gifted Bible teacher who dissects every line of scripture word for word and makes it applicable to our lives. He also speaks the truth about who we are, why we are here and where we are headed. Sometimes the truth is hard to take as it should be because it produces change for those willing to accept it. I love Pastor Damian because he has the courage to speak the truth to fallen world that doesn't desire to go out of their comfort zone. I have known Pastor Damian for 25 years and he is a very humble and thoughtful Senior Pastor of CCM. I have moved away from the Modesto area. I now understand how extraordinarily blessed Calvary Chapel of Modesto attendees are to have Pastor Damian.
