Mission House

Highlights

In December of last year, after recognizing a need for continued discipleship and transitional housing, Calvary Fellowship announced the opening and development of a new ministry - The Calvary Mission House. This will be a residential ministry serving those interested in continued spiritual growth and accountability, while also developing life skills necessary to be a positive, contributing member of the community and church body. The  intent is that, when residents have completed their one-to-fouryear commitment at the Calvary Mission House, they will be fully equipped spiritually and functionally to continue in their next steps.
Since that announcement, the Lord has been faithfully directing each step of the process. A start-up board of 13 members was formed and meets monthly to discuss, develop, and pray for the ministry. We are pleased to share that the property located at 2972 North Old Trail, Shamokin Dam was purchased as the location for the Calvary Mission House, which will consist of six apartments and a large common area. In addition to providing a home,  the Lord was faithful to bring a family willing to serve as the 2022- 2023 overseers.

What's Next

The board is excited to dig into building renovations and begin construction that will create the six functional apartments. These renovations will certainly be no small task. Furniture is also being gathered to furnish the apartments once they are complete. Cleaning is in full swing at the two existing apartments, one of which will serve as the overseer's home as they move in this month. The design of a logo is also in progress and once  complete, the process of having new signs added to the Calvary Mission House will begin. With all the moving parts and excitement, prayer remains a priority for the board. We invite you to pray with us as we seek wisdom, direction, and discernment on next steps in the process, as well as potential residents as the Lord continues to establish this ministry. We look forward to sharing again on how the Lord is working and moving in this new ministry.

Meet The Overseers

Both graduates of U-Turn for Christ PA, Mike and Stephanie Smego have been confirmed as the 2022-2023 Calvary Mission House overseers. The Smegos have completed their current leadership commitments with U- Turn for Christ and have begun moving into the Calvary Mission House as they transition to their new role. While living on the property, Mike and Stephanie will be directly overseeing and discipling the residents, as well as maintaining the property. Please keep the Smego family in prayer as the Lord leads out the next steps in their new role, moving homes, and their growing family.
