January 1, 2006, Pastor George Cope and his wife Cheryl, joined Calvary Assembly and assumed the role as Lead (Sr.) Pastor. Having been a pastor for over 30 years, and having served as President of Zion Bible College in the Northeast, Pastor Cope brought with him a love for people and a desire to facilitate effective ministry through bible teaching and discipleship training.
Through the years, both nationally and internationally renowned ministries have had their roots at Calvary Assembly. These include “Rock House," the Jesus Festivals, Charisma Magazine, and Crown Ministries, among others.
To those who have only observed from a distance, Calvary Assembly is synonymous for a big building. However, for those who have come close enough to know her heart, Calvary Assembly is really people….. people of all ages, from a variety of social and ethnic backgrounds, and from all walks of life….. people that have a big heart….. a big heart for their community, for our nation and for the countless millions around the world that have not yet heard the Good News of Jesus Christ.
It is the desire of the leadership that Calvary's sphere of influence only increase so that she will become all that God wants her to be and be a strong beacon to future generations. May God continue to bless Calvary Assembly as her people continue to “become a Biblically functioning community of believers through whom Christ's redemptive purposes can be accomplished in the world."
