History

Calvary Revival Church–Peninsula is a kingdom partnership of two visionaries. Bishop B. Courtney McBath and Pastor Ray Johnson joined forces to spark a life movement that would impact the Hampton Roads region.

A transitional church plant, Calvary Revival Church- Peninsula (CRC-P) finds its roots in Zoe Community Church. Zoe Community Church was established in 1997 and led by Pastor Raymond Johnson Sr, affectionately known as Pastor Sr. As Pastor Emeritus at CRCP, Pastor Sr. led Zoe Community Church with a vision of bringing life into the community. The members of Zoe sought to evangelize the community and establish disciples for the Kingdom through several outreach ministries. Through the Timothy Training Center, GED classes and computer literacy courses serviced residents in the downtown area. Women’s and children’s Bible studies gave birth to the Foot Soldiers youth ministry and the Zoe Community Development Corporation, which was led by then Elder Ray Johnson. Zoe was most known for its outreach to the poor and indigent through the establishment of Nehemiah’s Nook, a weekly food and clothing distribution center for the homeless and those in transition.

Today Zoe Community Church’s vision of bringing life into the community continues through the empowered walk of dominion in CRCPeninsula. As interim Pastor, Ray Johnson, led Zoe Community Church into a partnership that gave birth to Calvary Revival Church-Peninsula. The ministry has grown to hundreds of weekly attendees with a vision to expand across the peninsula and beyond  if an effort to be true to its vision of empowering people to walk in dominion through the power of Jesus Christ.   Get connected! And no matter what “Keep Walking in Dominion”.
