Bishop Calvin B. Lockett was born in Macon, Mississippi on July 1st, 1968 to Deacon Lue Henry and Minister Veola Lockett. He was educated in the Noxubee County School System where he graduated in 1986. Soon thereafter, he enlisted in the U.S. Army–unaware that he had begun walking in his preordained destiny. It was through his travels in the military that God would reassign him as founder and pastor of Christ The Healer Church. For 15 years Bishop Lockett faithfully served in the U.S. Army until God called him to labor in full-time ministry.
Along with pastoring a vibrant and progressive church, Bishop Lockett was consecrated in 2008 as a bishop in the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship by Bishop Paul S. Morton, Sr. Bishop Lockett has served as Middle Tennessee District Overseer, Tennessee State Overseer, and Tennessee State Bishop. He currently serves as a member of Presiding Bishop Joseph Walker’s Cabinet as the Bishop of Fellowship Relations. Along with serving in various other leadership positions in Full Gospel, he also serves as senior son in The Prophetic Matriarch’s Mantle (PMM) under the leadership of Prophetess Marcia Morrison. He has earned two degrees: a Bachelor’s of Arts in Biblical Studies from Jacksonville Theological Seminary and a Bachelor of Science in Sociology from Austin Peay State University.
Bishop Lockett is widely respected for being a man of great faith, a man of vigilant prayer, and a man who believes in holy and righteous living. Although he has received numerous awards both in and out of the military, Bishop Lockett maintains a hunger for God, a deep desire to be like Jesus, and a sincere love for God’s people. The pulse of his ministry is to present The Gospel of Jesus Christ with clarity, simplicity, and power. Bishop Lockett is married to the exquisite Pastor Lynnita M. Jones Lockett and is the loving father of three children—Calvin Ezekiel, Carah Aleasha, and Ciara Lynn.
