Last month, Calvary Chapel Magazine editor Tom Price traveled to Calvary Chapel Chino Hills, California, to catch up with Pastor Jack Hibbs in the midst of unprecedented times for the church and Christianity in the United States. On September 12, Tom documented a historic moment as Pastor Jack and his staff baptized more than 1,000 believers at Corona Del Mar in Newport Beach.

Below is Part Three of an exclusive conversation between Tom and Pastor Jack discussing tough decisions facing pastors during the COVID-19 pandemic. "I dont think pastors have the authority to close the door to His church," Pastor Jack said after vividly describing the timeline and his reasoning for re-opening despite orders from the state.
