History of Calvary Chapel Pittsburgh

Calvary Chapel Pittsburgh began having Sunday morning services on Easter Sunday 1992 in the Mallon home in Ingram. Saturday night we would clear out the living room and dining room furniture and set up chairs and picnic benches. Most of the people who first attended came from one of two Bible studies that met for several years prior to that in the Mallon home. The church grew and after 3 years in the house we moved into the Ingram Masonic Hall (a former church building) on Saturday evenings. After six months there, we moved to Elliott in 1995. The United Church of Christ agreed to lease their facilities on Chartiers Avenue to Calvary Chapel for Sunday morning services, after their own morning service. Soon after that, we began to also meet on weekday evenings for Bible study and prayer.  Senior pastor James Goodmon heard the call in 2000 to return with his family to Bloomington Indiana to pastor a church there and the Board of Calvary Chapel of Pittsburgh asked associate pastor Kevin to assume the senior pastor role. During that time our church fellowship began to grow and we began to look for a new building to meet in.  We prayed about where to go and then in November 2002 God opened the door for us to buy a building on Noblestown Road.  Over the next year and eight months we fixed up the building to get it ready for us to move in.  Finally, after 8.5 years we officially said goodbye to our old church location and moved into our current location on July 11, 2004.
