For more than 40 years, the sermons of Rev. Dr. S.M. Lockridge (1913 - 2000) boomed from the pulpit of San Diego's Calvary Baptist Church and far beyond—at crusades, revivals, religious rallies and evangelistic conferences around the world. During Dr. Lockridge's tenure at Calvary Baptist, one of the most prominent African-American congregations in San Diego, his ministry reached more than 100,000 people.
