The roots of Calvary Chapel can be found in Costa Mesa, California. A non-denominational Christian church, Calvary Chapel was founded by Pastor Chuck Smith in 1965. It has been estimated that over 8,000 baptisms were performed in a two year period at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa in the mid 70’s. During that same period, Pastor Chuck Smith and his church were instrumental in bringing 20,000 conversions to the Christian faith. Chuck Smith has come to be known as a leading figure in what is today called “The Jesus Movement.”
Our current Pastor, David Toro, served along side Pastor Rich for four years, during which time he was made Associate Pastor. In January 2015 Dave was installed as the Senior Pastor so that Rich and his wife, Arthy, could answer the call they felt back to the mission field. Today Rich and Arthy travel and run a ministry that teaches people how to study and teach the bible, as well as teaching in various local and global churches.
Pastor Dave Toro was born and brought up in New York City, later moving to Pennsylvania. For the last 17 years he has been working alongside his brothers in a Christian band, The Toro Brothers (aka Universal Royalty), ministering to people through music and Bible teaching, sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ and encouraging His body.
Dave is married to Clare and has three young daughters.
Desiring to hold true to the Word of God, we study verse by verse through the Bible at our services. All services at Calvary Chapel Birmingham are in-depth surveys of the text.
Presently, we have two times that we meet throughout the week to study the Word and worship.
