We began as a few families meeting in a home, and in 2002 started Sunday services. By the end of that year we were leasing what was an empty church building in downtown Bemidji – which we continue to use today.
Our church is affiliated with Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa, CA (pastor Chuck Smith / www.calvarychapel.org). We are part of a fellowship of churches throughout the world that now number over 1200.
There are many great people that make Calvary Chapel Bemidji what it is! We welcome you to join us and become a part of our family under the grace & truth of Jesus!
Our pastor, Chris Hess, was born & raised in Duluth, MN. After moving to Seattle, he was sent out from Calvary Fellowship in Seattle (www.calvaryfellowship.org) as a missionary to Russia from 1992-2001.
He and his wife Morgan and their four boys (Caleb, Luke, Ben, & Silas) moved to Bemidji in 2002 as Calvary Chapel Bemidji was planted.
