Our History
The church was birthed by a dozen or so Pentecostals who believed that God wanted them to start a full-gospel work that would be a lighthouse to the community. The church originally met in the home of Roy and Sarah Compton and then at the Warnerville Skating Rink.
Pastor Dan and Joyce Mucci called as first pastors in spring 1969. Property was purchased on South Grand Street and construction of first facility began. Building was dedicated in June 1972.
Pastor Ken and Janice Olsen called to serve as Calvary's second pastor in August 1972. Building continued to be upgraded. Outreach to the Cobleskill Fair held in August 1973.
Pastor Chip and Cheryl Nicols (1983-1984), Pastor Gary and Janice Lundblad (1984-1988), Pastor Bill and Sheri McCaffery (1988-1990) all served at Calvary.
Pastor Wayne and Barbara Hampton called as third pastor in August 1974. Under their long tenure, church experienced strong growth. Kids Crusades were held. Prodigal Bus Ministry and a Coffee House were started. A Christian school was launched in 1981.
