A History Of Calvary Chapel Nampa
Over the course of the last twenty-plus years and through various challenges at different times, it has been the faithfulness of God and obedience to God’s calling that has allowed this fellowship to become what it is today.
Sunday March 5, 1989 was the day when three couples gathered for the first service of Calvary Chapel Nampa at the American Legion Hall in Nampa, Idaho. Calvary Chapel Nampa would gather there and grow over the next year.
In 1990 the Lord provided through generous donations for the purchase of the land upon which the church currently meets. In those days the meeting place was in the building that has now become Calvary Christian School.
It was in 1994 that the church was given the vision of opening a school that would provide a quality Christian education for the church body and the community of Nampa. As the school grew over the years, the decision was made to use the initial sanctuary building exclusively for the school and Calvary Chapel Nampa began holding services in a large outdoor tent for the next three years.
In 2007 the new sanctuary for Calvary Chapel Nampa was completed. As he had done so many times over the years since the ministry began the Lord provided faithfully all that was needed for the new building.
In early 2015 Pastor Tim Doughty and his wife Becky Doughty stepped out in faith as the Senior Pastor of Calvary Chapel Nampa. It is Pastor Tim's conviction that The Lord wants to use the fellowship of Calvary Chapel Nampa to serve the community of Nampa and surrounding communities. At Calvary Chapel Nampa it is our goal to equip you, your family, our church body and our community with the needed spiritual resources to provide spiritual growth.
