CHURCH HISTORY

   Pentecostal Calvary Temple was founded in 1957 by Rev. Lewis Richie. He had a ministry of deliverance and he had a desire to see souls changed by the power of God . He pastored and traveled along with his wife Peggy and children, holding revivals across the USA in tents and churches. He had a miracle, signs and wonders ministry, used mightily in the gifts of the spirit. He pastored until his death in 1992.
