About

Pastor David LandryThe Open Word is the teaching ministry of Pastor H. David Landry, the senior and founding pastor of Calvary Chapel of Casa Grande in Casa Grande, AZ. Beginning in 1991 as a small home Bible study fellowship, the Lord has grown the ministry to where it is today, an active participant in local, national and world-wide outreaches.

David is passionate about sharing the inerrant Word of God in a manner which is deep and profound in the truth expressed, yet simple to comprehend. The importance of understanding the Word of God in the context in which it is written is paramount to the correct application of that Word into our lives. David believes that as we personally draw closer to the Lord Jesus through study, prayer and obedience, the Holy Spirit will continue to equip and empower us to be the men and women of God’s Kingdom we were designed and created to be. The Bible itself declares clearly that God, by “His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue” (2 Peter 1:3)

Here on the Open Word website you will find a growing catalogue of David’s teachings from both the Old and New Testament in his verse by verse, chapter by chapter, book by book style, with an occasional topical message from special occasions.

Pastor David and Tot LandryDavid and his wife, Tot (yes, that’s her real name), were married in 1972, after having met at a private Christian College in Phoenix, Arizona. Working side by side, they have faithfully served the Lord Jesus through both denominational and non-denominational churches and ministries since that time.

After feeling God’s call in early 1990 to begin a new ministry, the Landry family moved to Casa Grande, Arizona in 1991 to pioneer the work of Calvary Chapel of Casa Grande.

David and Tot have two adult children and four grandchildren.
