Facility Highlights

The Calvary Church building was completed in 1989, and is actually the fifth facility the Calvary congregation has occupied in its more than 65 year history.

Situated on 100 acres in south Charlotte, the architectural design was envisioned as a "modern cathedral" to house Calvary's sizeable and growing congregation, plus its many local, regional, and international ministries. At the time it was built, the look of the building was breathtakingly innovative. Big, pink, and shaped like a crown, Calvary Church — by design — made a statement and could not be overlooked!

Today, Calvary's building is a highly visible site attracting visitors from across the nation. It remains home to a vital, growing, relevant, and active congregation that seeks to reach the world for Christ. Its 310,000 square feet of space is continually packed with ministry activity.

It's important to remember that despite its physical size, the true building blocks of Calvary are the small groups of people and the intimate relationships that are built throughout the church in every ministry. Calvary is really the biggest small church around!
