About Us



Calvary Chapel Central is neither the largest Calvary in town, nor are we the smallest.  We are simply who the Lord has called us to be.  We started our ministry in a home Bible study with about nine people.   That blossomed into what we have today.

We run about two hundred and seventy five adults and fifty to seventy five children on any given Sunday.  We have “birthed” three churches from Calvary Central: Calvary Chapel Arcadia, Calvary Chapel Goodyear, and Calvary Chapel Arrowhead.  All are doing well.



Frances Ortiz

Please be praying for Frances.  She just found out from her doctor that she has blood clots on her heart and problems with her liver.  They have her on blood thinners to try to clear up the blood clots and she will follow up with a Cardiologist.


We want to help if we can – so please in fill in the Contact Form and we will get back to you as soon possible.


Helpinging Financially

How You can give:

The giving of our tithes and offerings is one of the most basic disciplines of the Christian faith. Many of the people who call Calvary Chapel Central their “home church” support it faithfully week in and week out. This is how we are able to fund the internal infrastructure of the local fellowship and the external contributions we make to the many works which are going on outside of our walls.

If you would like to know more about what the Bible has to say about the tithe – Pastor John has done several teachings on the subject over the years. You can click here and see “stewardship” or here and see “tithe”.

There are several ways in which we are able to receive your faithful support.

On site: We receive tithes and offerings each week and as you exit our sanctuary, there are offering boxes located next to both exits.

By mail: You can simply send in your tithe or offering to Calvary Chapel Central – 2831 W. Glendale – Phx., AZ 8505

Automatic Bill Pay: Most banks enable you to set up a scheduled bill payment from their web-site. This is an easy and convenient way to set aside your contribution for many months in advance. Once you’ve set up the schedule, the bank does all the work. Please remember to have the church mailing address handy when you set it up.

Contribute Online: Many people like the convenience of using the internet. We’ve established a Pay Pal account which will allow a contributer to make a contribution with a major credit card. To use this feature, just click the “Donate” button at the bottom of this page and follow the instructions. (note: Paypal does deduct a small processing fee from the total amount given)

We have decided to save a few trees AND provide a more effective way to do our church bulletins.

Every Sunday bulletins either get thrown away or stuffed in Bibles not to be seen for days or even months. By subscribing for our E-bulletins – you can have them sent directly to your inbox. Go ahead – give it a try. We think you will like it and you will have the entire weekend to look it over because we send them out on Friday.

You will be emailed the list once per week. Thank you for teaming up with us!

We consider it an honor to pray for you and with you.

A. W. Tozer said:

Private prayer should be practiced by every Christian. Long periods of Bible meditation will purify our gaze and direct it; church attendance will enlarge our outlook and increase our love for others. Service and work and activity; all are good and should be engaged in by every Christian. But at the bottom of all these things, giving meaning to them, will be the inward habit of beholding God. A new set of eyes (so to speak) will develop within us enabling us to be looking at God while our outward eyes are seeing the scenes of this passing world. (Pursuit of God – Chapter 7 – The Gaze of The Soul)
