Pastor David Maestas is native to New Mexico. He grew up in Belen, New Mexico where he graduated from high school. David was born in the 60's and grew up living a life apart from God. Drugs and alcohol were a part of his life, until one drunken binge sent him to the ER after having a major seizure.
It was then that David responded to the gospel and began his relationship with Jesus. He surrendered his life and left his life in God's hands. Over the years, David began to serve the Lord allowing God to guide and direct.
Many great pastors like David Rosales, and his own brother Paul Maestas from Calvary Chapel Tecate, Mexico spoke into his heart. By their lead, he started a bible study in his home in 2005.
That bible study of a few, began Calvary Chapel New Harvest. CCNH has been serving the community of Los Lunas for over 17 years. David has been supported by his wife Catherine. Together they have four grown children and nine grandchildren.
Pastor David’s heart has always been to be transparent from the pulpit while teaching God’s word. Pastor David can be found ministering through the radio on KLYT daily. His podcast "Living it Out" can be found on Apple Podcast or Spotify where he continues to teach the Bible in a simple line-by-line, verse-by-verse style.
