Calvary Christian School Staff
Pastor Kevin Broyhill (Pastor)
The Lord led Pastor Broyhill to Calvary Baptist Church to serve as Associate Pastor in March of 2006, and then as Senior Pastor commencing in March of 2008. He came to know the Lord as his Savior at the age of 17 and was called to preach the Gospel a year later. Pastor Broyhill studied at Piedmont Bible College in Winston-Salem, NC and in 1994 graduated from Calvary Baptist Bible College in King, NC with a Bachelor of Theology degree. Prior to coming to Calvary Baptist Church, he served as the Pastor of Temple Baptist Church in Lenoir, NC for 16 years. Pastor Broyhill and his wife Lori have two children, Emily and James, who both graduated from CCS. “As the Pastor of Calvary Baptist Church, I am committed to the pursuit of excellence in Christian education that has been the hallmark of CCS over the past 25+ years!”Mr. Sid Main (Principal)
Mr. Main accepted Christ as personal Savior in 1975 and answered the call to full time ministry 6 weeks later. Soon thereafter, Bro. Main enrolled in Baptist Bible College in Springfield, MO. where he earned a BS in Elem. Educ., followed by a MS in School Administration from Tennessee Temple University in Chattanooga, TN. Mr. Main served as principal of Northside Christian School in Louisville, Ky for 13 years and has been principal at Calvary Christian School in King since 1997. CCS has enjoyed steady improvement under his leadership. "I know God led me to CCS, and I'm so glad He did. CCS is a wonderful school, and its faculty are all great servants of the Lord."
Mr. Tony Keel (HS Math)
Mr. Keel received Christ as his personal Savior in his home in February of 1969 and graduated from Virginia Tech in 1974 with a BS in Math Education. From 1974 until 1986 Bro. Keel taught HS math in Emporia, Blacksburg, and Richmond, Virginia, also serving as principal during part of his 8-year tenure in Blacksburg. In July of 1986, the Lord led Bro. Keel to Calvary in King where he now serves as High School Math and Computer Applications teacher, High School Supervisor and Assistant to the Principal. "Having taught school for over 30 years, it has been and still is my privilege to try to shape lives for Christ. I am thankful God sent me to CCS to help students develop Godly Christian character."Miss Dinah Satterfield (HS English)
Miss Satterfield received the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal Savior at a Tom Farrell revival when she was 15 years old, at Grace Baptist Church in West Columbia, SC. She graduated from Pensacola Christian College in 1999 with a BS in Secondary Education, majoring in English. Miss Satterfield came to Calvary with 9 years of prior experience teaching 7-12th grade English, speech, drama and history, at Friendship Christian School in Raleigh, NC (1999-2008). The Lord led Miss Satterfield to join our Calvary family in the fall of 2008 as junior and senior high English teacher. “I am grateful to be at a Christian school where the spiritual growth of the children is the main focus of the ministry. I enjoy working with young people and sharing with them how to love and serve God.”
Miss Emily Broyhill (HS Science)
Miss Broyhill is the daughter of our own Pastor Kevin Broyhill, and as such grew up in a home totally given to ministry. At the age of 17, in November of 2008, Miss Broyhill received Christ as her personal Savior. During that same school year God used our own science teacher to inspire her and she surrendered to be a Christian school teacher. Miss Broyhill graduated from CCS in May of 2009, and then attended West Coast Baptist College where she majored in secondary education. In her freshman year of college she surrendered to a specific call to be a Christian school science teacher. We are blessed that the Lord led Miss Broyhill to return to her Alma matter after graduating from West Coast to teach science, health and girls’ PE. “I am very excited to be a teacher at Calvary Christian School, and I am extremely blessed to be part of such an amazing ministry!”Mrs. Sharon Thompson (HS Spanish & Independent Studies)
Mrs. Thompson grew up in a strong Christian home and accepted Christ as her personal Savior when she was 9 years old. She surrendered her life fully to the Lord at teen camp, and after high school she attended and graduated from Pensacola Christian College. Mrs. Thompson married her husband Michael in 1989 and later surrendered to God’s call for missions. In 1996 they were appointed as missionaries to Paraguay, South America. After five years of deputation and one year of language school in Costa Rica, Bro. and Mrs. Thompson began their missions work in Paraguay in 2002. They served there until 2013 when the Lord led them to return home to Calvary Baptist in King. During their years of deputation and missions work Mrs. Thompson homeschooled her children while traveling and on the field. During furloughs Mrs. Thompson worked as a substitute teacher at CCS where her children also attended school. We are grateful the Lord led Mrs. Thompson back to Calvary to teach HS Spanish and Journalism and oversee our Independent Studies and Online Learning Program. “I am thankful for the opportunity the Lord has provided for me to serve at Calvary Christian School. The teachers and staff have been a blessing to my own family, and I look forward to seeing God work in the lives of the students.”

Lane married his wife Kristian in 2011 and received a Bachelor of Theology degree from Calvary Baptist Bible College in 2012 with a double minor in Pastoral Theology and Youth Ministry. Bro. Lane became the Director of Student Ministries at Calvary Baptist Church in King in January of 2014 and currently oversees Calvary Clubs, teen ministries, graphic design, assists Pastor Broyhill in the church, teaches Bible and Boys’ PE, and oversees the chapel program in the school. “I am excited for the opportunity to teach students about God in the school. My goal is for every student to realize that the God of history is the same God we serve today.”
Mr. Thomas Delp (HS Bible & Fine Arts)
Mr. Delp was raised in a good Christian home, and on October 17th, 1999 received Christ as his personal Savior. After attending Ambassador Baptist College from 2007-2011, Bro.

Delp is a dedicated and gifted servant of the Lord, and Calvary is blessed to have him on board. “What a joy it is to be a vessel that God can use to bring praise and glory to His majestic name! I look forward to praising God together with the students at CCS each year through music and fine arts.”Mrs. April Tackett (7th Grade)
Mrs. Tackett grew up at Calvary in King, served the Lord in the bus ministry, and graduated from Calvary Christian High School. She received the Lord Jesus as her personal Savior at the age of 19 during a Tom Farrell revival at Calvary Baptist Church. Having grown up in a strong Christian home and making an early childhood profession of faith at age six, she had known all her life that God had a special plan for her life. Not long after getting saved as a college student at BJU, she committed her life to be a Christian school teacher. She transferred to and graduated from Piedmont Baptist College in 1998 with her teaching degree. She taught 4th grade here at CCS until 2003 when the Lord led her away, then returned in 2006 to teach 4th grade for five more years. In 2011 Mrs. Tackett moved into the Junior High to teach 7th grade, more excited than ever. “It is an honor and privilege to be able to teach here at Calvary Christian School, and I am so very pleased that in 2006 the Lord brought me back!”
Mrs. Lynette Cave (6th Grade)
Mrs. Lynette Cave received Jesus as her Savior 5 days after turning six, just 6 months after her mom and dad received Christ. The strong influence of a faithful Christian home, regular church attendance, and Christian school education grounded Mrs. Cave in her faith as a young lady. With a passion to teach, Mrs. Cave received her teacher training from Piedmont Baptist College, Salem College (BS & BA Elem Ed), and Gardner-Webb University (MS Elem Ed). Between undergraduate and master’s degrees, Mrs. Cave began a family and also taught fifth grade at Copeland Elementary School for five years. When it was time for her children to attend school, Bro. & Mrs. Cave chose CCS in King because, in her words, “We believed, then and now, that Calvary is the best option for our family.” Later, as we considered her for a vacant 6th grade teaching position, her former principal recommended her with these words: “She is the best - hire her!” We are grateful to the Lord for leading Mrs. Cave to teach 6th grade at CCS. “I was a ‘CCS Mom’ for 6 years, but I am thrilled to now also be a CCS teacher. I love teaching and learning and sharing my excitement for learning with my students at CCS.”
Mr. John Foote (5th Grade)
At 4 years old, Mr. Foote received Christ as personal Savior at home in his bedroom. Bro Foote later attended Bob Jones University in Greenville, SC, to prepare for full-time ministry, graduating in 1991 with a BA in Pastoral Studies. Bro. Foote worked in evangelism with his father Leon Foote for 16 years until the Lord called him to CCS in 2001 to teach 5th grade. In addition to his outstanding work as 5th grade teacher, John adds something quite extraordinary to our program with his Gospel Magic, puppets, ventriloquism, and professional clowning. "I have been in more than 50 different Christian schools while in evangelism. CCS in King is clearly the best school that I have ever been a part of."
Mrs. Susie Cole (4th Grade)
Mrs. Cole made a profession of faith in Christ as a child, but after years of doubt received full assurance of her eternal salvation eight years after marrying her husband Ron (a Baptist preacher). Mrs. Cole faithfully served the Lord for many years in many aspects of missionary and church work. She received her teacher training from the University of South Florida and Liberty University, and her teaching experiences have included 7 years in the public school system and 3 years in Christian schools. Mrs. Cole is a loving, capable teacher with a great heart for the Lord and for children, and CCS is blessed that she joined our staff in 2011. “My number one priority for the children is that they learn they are special to Jesus and that He loves them – and so do I! My number two priority is to help all children reach their full potential as learners, and to equip them to enter the world to serve and honor God.”
Mrs. Ruthann Reeves (3rd Grade)
Mrs. Reeves received a BS in Elementary and Special Education from Bowling Green State University in Ohio in 1969. She taught 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades from 1975 - 1984 in Toledo, Ohio, and then in January of 1985 she received Christ as her personal Savior. Mrs. Reeves continued her teaching career in 2nd and 3rd grades at Rural Hall Elementary School near Winston-Salem, NC, from 1988 until 1999. In 1999 the Lord used the preaching of Evangelist Tom Farrell to lead her away from public education to teach 3rd grade at Calvary in King. "I have taught for many years, but my years at CCS have been the very best. We have a wonderful school because the Lord is at the center."
Mrs. Monica Foote (2nd Grade)
Mrs. Foote received the Lord Jesus as her personal Savior as a 7th grade student at Cedar Forest Christian School in Winston-Salem, NC. Mrs. Foote attended Bob Jones University in Greenville, SC, and graduated with a BS in Elementary Education in 1991. During her tenure at CCS in King, Mrs. Foote has taught 1 year in the high school, 2 years combined 5th/6th grades, and 2nd grade from 1998 until the present time. Mrs. Foote and her husband John spend every summer traveling with Evangelist Leon Foote (John's father) conducting Vacation Bible Schools and literally "clowning" around. "I love teaching at CCS. It is such a thrill to educate children with so much potential for the Lord. It's exciting to watch them grow closer to reaching that potential every day."
Mrs. Traci Hubbard (1st Grade)
Mrs. Hubbard received Christ as her personal Lord and Savior in July of 1999 in Kitzingen, Germany. Mrs. Hubbard served at CCS as K/5 assistant for six years while working toward earning an elementary education degree. In 2010 Mrs. Hubbard finished her college work and joined our teaching staff as 1st grade teacher. "I am so thankful the Lord has allowed me to serve Him at Calvary. The faculty members are a great support system to each other. Even more important than that is their love for the Lord and the children they (we) minister to. Calvary kids are the best!"
Mrs. Angela Lawson (K5) Mrs. Sandra Weaver (K4)
Mrs. Lawson grew up right here at Calvary in King, received the Lord Jesus as her personal Savior at the age of 13 while attending the Wilds Christian teen camp, and graduated from our own Calvary Christian High School. After graduating from Pensacola Christian College in December of ‘97 with a BS in Early Childhood Education, she returned to CCS where she taught 1st grade from 1997–2001. Mrs. Lawson left to start a family, and later she and her husband launched a thriving family-operated office supply business. She returned to CCS in the fall of 2007 to teach K/5 , and as of 2010 also serves as Director of our Pre-School and Kindergarten Program. “After four wonderful years teaching 1st grade at CCS, I was excited when God allowed me to return!”
Mrs. Weaver graduated from Appalachian State University in 1989. After college she worked as the sales manager and marketing director for a Sleep Inn, at the YMCA’s Child Watch and Day care programs, and as K4 assistant at North Cove Elementary School. Mrs. Weaver received Christ as her personal Savior in 1995 during a service preached by our former pastor, Dr. Roger Baker. Mrs. Weaver has no doubt that the Lord opened up this opportunity for her to serve Him at Calvary. “The Lord impressed a strong desire on my heart to help mothers who would need childcare because of their occupations. I love to take care of and love on little children. To be able to take care of them, teach them how to read and write, and teach them about Jesus all at the same time is wonderful. That’s how I know that teaching K4 at Calvary is exactly where the Lord wants me to be.” We are pleased and blessed that the Lord brought Mrs. Weaver to Calvary to teach a combined 3 / 4 year old class in 2011, where He wonderfully prepared her for the primary K4 teaching position that she know holds at CCS.
Mrs. Jennifer White (Elementary Music & Piano)
Mrs. White grew up in a Christian home and received the Lord Jesus as her personal Savior when she was 7 years old. The Lord later gave her a desire to someday teach music and marry a man who would serve the Lord in full time ministry. After high school she attended Tennessee Temple University where she met her husband and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in music in 1993. Mrs. White and her husband, Pastor John White, have served the Lord together in full time ministry since that time. Mrs. White received her Master’s Degree from Liberty University in December of 2011, and the next month joined our Calvary staff where she now teaches 3rd grade recorders, elementary band, and private piano lessons. “It is a joy and privilege to teach music at Calvary Christian School. My desire is to encourage the students at CCS to develop their musical abilities and become musicians that will serve and honor the Lord with their talent.”
