Pastor Paul, his wife Karen, and daughter Kelly moved to New Jersey in 1985 to plant a new Assemblies of God church in Delran. Working in cooperation with the New Jersey District Assemblies of God, they started Calvary Temple in October of that year. Under their leadership the church has steadily grown numerically and spiritually. The church began in a funeral home, moved from there to a school and finally to a mall before completing the first phase of the building the church now calls home. In 2010 Calvary Temple became Calvary Church in order to clarify our identity as a christian fellowship. Calvary Church is continuing to grow and serve the surrounding communities to make sure "no one is without Jesus."
