Below is some Q & A with Chris Barnes, the Director of Student Ministries.



What are your greatest hopes and dreams for the next couple of years for your church?

This year Calvary Bible Church will celebrate 130 years in Boulder.  In 2006, we expanded Calvary Bible into the town of Erie, located about 15 miles east of Boulder.  At the time the town was projected to double in size and no church had yet established a presence there.  Currently our Erie campus has approximately 1,100 attendees.  In the next couple of years we hope to plant a third campus in another strategic location. 

We desire to continue to be faithful to how God is leading us to exist as a church and grow our community.
