The Big Picture
Calvary International Church (calvary.org.br) is a faithful English-speaking international congregation seeking a full-time Lead Pastor who will preach the Word of God in an expository manner, graciously shepherd the congregation, and provide godly leadership.
The church was established in 1961 by a group of members from Perdizes Baptist
Church to minister to the growing number of English-speaking families that were
moving to São Paulo at that time. It was founded on traditional Baptist principles
and doctrine. Today, the congregation is made up of representatives of over 15 different
nationalities, from different social and religious backgrounds, gathering with the
purpose of corporate worship, fellowship and being equipped to go out and share
Jesus to the world. There are currently 125 resident members. Prior to the pandemic, attendance was a little over 300 with 80% being Brazilian, mostly 3rd culture, and 20% foreign. Calvary presently offers two services every Sunday at 9:00am and 11:00am. We also stream our services live online, as well as provide access to recorded messages.
