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.
We at Calvary Chapel Pittsburgh
are seeking to follow Jesus Christ and His command to show His love
to all. Everyone is welcome to come worship the Lord Jesus and study
the Scriptures with us.
