This summer, an exciting new chapter of ministry began at Calvary Chapel Meridian in Idaho. After meeting out of temporary spaces since their founding in 2009, the believers at Calvary Chapel set foot inside their permanent space in June 2023 and were blown away.
The church body experienced rapid growth over the past four years, with weekly attendance nearly doubling from 800 to almost 1,600. During this time, Calvary Chapel ramped up for a big move that would be necessary to support their thriving ministry in Meridian.
“Our purpose as a fellowship of believers is to make committed followers of Jesus. That is, to multiply ourselves into more believers that will be sacrificial followers of Jesus.”
Calvary Chapel continues to faithfully live out this purpose. Since taking up residence in their new building, the church has only continued to multiply disciples, adding 100 to their fellowship and baptizing many.
With new facilities comes new opportunities. The teachers and families at Calvary Chapel are excited about the launch of their school. “The best part is the stories I am hearing about some people returning to the Lord through just checking out something new they heard about or were invited to,” reflected Lead Pastor Troy Drake.
CDF Capital VP of Ministry Development Jim Marr loved working with Calvary Chapel Meridian and seeing their years of preparation pay off. “Their new facility will enable them to further impact their growing community with the gospel,” Jim said, “and we’re excited to hear the many stories of how God continues to move in and through the church.”
