Calvary Chapel is a church in Rochester, New York with a vision to see people know Jesus, follow Jesus, and live for Jesus. We exist to shine the light of the gospel into a world blinded by sin that all might discover the promise of life and liberty that is in Christ Jesus.
Pastor Micah has been serving as the senior pastor at Calvary Chapel of Greece, NY since March of 2010. Prior to that he served at Calvary as the worship leader and youth pastor. He and his wife Kate have been married for 11 years and have five wonderful children.
Calvary Chapel Greece began in 1981 as a home Bible Study with a few people gathered in a living room desiring to worship Jesus and to grow closer to Him. Bob Chappell, then an Assistant Pastor at Calvary Chapel of the Finger Lakes, drove from Farmington, NY every week to teach a Bible study and lead the group and raised up a pastor and leadership team. Eventually, the study outgrew the living room and had to move to the local grange hall in the town of Greece, NY. As more families began to respond to the gospel, the fellowship had to move again to an old church building located in North Greece, its current location.
After planting a church in Southern California and serving the Lord in various capacities, Pastor Bob was asked to return to the church and became the Senior Pastor in 1994. In March 2010, Pastor Bob Chappell went home to be with the Lord. Following in the footsteps of his father, Micah Chappell accepted the position of Senior Pastor at Calvary Chapel. With a heart for the Lord and a love to worship Jesus, he continues to teach verse by verse through the Bible.
Calvary continues to be a community of believers that desire to know Jesus, follow Jesus, and live for Jesus. We meet regularly throughout the week for worship, Bible study, prayer, and fellowship.
