Our Mission

We appreciate you visiting our website and hope that you get to know a little bit about us as well as what you can expect when coming to visit our community. Calvary Pentecostal Church was founded in Kenora in 1938, and is situated on the north shore of beautiful Lake of the Woods. This community is home to about 15,500 people in the winter and thousands of cottagers and visitors during the summer months. The area serves as a hub for many government services, industries & businesses in North Western Ontario and is nestled in the midst of a number of indigenous communities. In this backdrop Calvary Pentecostal Church shares the truths of scripture with a 21st Century relevance as relating to our everyday lives. John 4:23,24 says God is Spirit and those who worship HIM should do so in Spirit and Truth, this is our goal in providing a place of worship.

Pastor Mike & Cathy Davis

began pastoring at Calvary November 2018 after 2 successful long-term pastorates in Sioux Lookout On & Brandon MB. They envision a community of people connecting with God and each other.

We welcome you to join us if you live in the area or if you are visiting Kenora during your travels.
