A Place For You
Apopka Calvary is a Christian Church located in Apopka, Florida, just outside of Orlando. The Church of the Nazarene is a Protestant Christian church, tracing its roots to an anniversary date of 1908.
It was founded to spread the message of Christ like living across the land. Today, the Church of the Nazarene is located in 151 world areas. The Church of the Nazarene is a Great Commission church. We believe that God offers everyone forgiveness, peace, joy, purpose, love, meaning in life, and the promise of heaven when life is over by entering and experiencing a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We are called to take this message to people everywhere.
Apopka Calvary Church of the Nazarene was established in 1974. The Reverend James Page was the senior pastor for 35 years until his retirement in March of 2016. The church experienced tremendous growth during his tenure. Pastor Page and his wife currently reside in Apopka and in the Mountains of Boone, North Carolina. Their children and grandchildren still attend Apopka Calvary. Pastor Jim and JoAnn still attend services when they can. We are very thankful and appreciative for them and wish them the best in their retirement.
We were very fortunate and excited to announce Reverend Garry Proehl as our Senior Pastor in 2016. Previously, Pastor Garry led Cornerstone Church of Nazarene in Wheelersburg, Ohio, for over twenty years. He and his wife Annette have three children. All three attended or still attend Olivet Nazarene University in Illinois. Their son Dusstin is part of our leadership team in the role of Youth Pastor. Pastor Garry has a passion for our church to be a place where a stranger can come and feel loved and not judged. He wants us to be a beacon in Apopka for the lost and hurt. We have already have been so blessed to have Pastor Garry and his wife as our Senior Pastor.
Love this wonderful church!
