Skip Heitzig is a native of southern California. Though raised in a religious home, Skip saw religion as a dead-end street with no answers. At 18, the Lord reached him with the Gospel through a Billy Graham TV Crusade. Skip studied under Chuck Smith at Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa until 1981, when he and his wife Lenya moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico. In 1982, he began a home Bible study which eventually grew into Calvary Church, a multisite congregation of over 15,000.
Skip reaches out to thousands across the nation and throughout the world through his multi-media ministry.
Skip also helps equip others for living according to God’s principles through his writings. Some of his books include The Bible from 30,000 Feet, You Can Understand the Book of Revelation, The Daily God Book, and How to Study the Bible and Enjoy It (revised). Skip holds a DD and PhD. in Philosophy Biblical and Theological Studies from Trinity Southwest University.
His son Nathan and daughter-in-law Janaé have made Skip and Lenya the proud grandparents of Seth Nathaniel and Kaydence Joy.
