Pastor Calvin Buhler

& Wife Shelbea Buhler

Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there, to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson, or to help you figure out who you are or who you want to become.  That's what happened 34 years ago when Calvin and Shelbea Buhler came to pastor New Home General Baptist Church.

April 2015 will mark the 35th Anniversary of Pastor Calvin Buhler ministering to the congregation.  During the 35 years he has played an important part in helping with several building projects and new ministries have been added.

In 1981 a Junior Church program was developed for the children by Sister Shelbea Buhler.  She has been a faithful servant of the Lord for 35 years at New Home General Baptist Church.

In 1983, Pastor Buhler saw the need and developed a nursing home ministry at Bluff Manor which continues today, 32 years later at The Manor in Poplar Bluff, MO.

Pastor Buhler's hard work has never stopped, and New Home continues to grow.  Through Pastor Calvin Buhler's and Sister Shelbea's dedication, New Home has grown not only in numbers, but also in spirit.

God really blessed this church be sending Pastor Calvin and his wife, Shelbea, to New Home in 1980, and everyone here appreciates their dedicaiton and hard work.

We, the congregation, here at New Home General Baptist Church would like to say to them both, "Thank You."
