About Us

This is our Story

Calvary Chapel Ringgold, in North Georgia, is a relatively new church that has a craving
for authentic community, a love & concern for people, and a passion for God and His Living Word.. We are on a pursuit to live out the teachings of His Word, and most of all, possess a desire to be committed followers of Jesus Christ.

We began our first evening Bible Study in the book of Galatians on Tuesday, March 15th, 2011. After 8 months, we concluded this epistle  (November 1st). After much prayer and discussion, we believed the Lord wanted PBC (then Parkway Bible Chapel) to transition to Sunday mornings at 10:00 am for Worship and the continued expositional teaching of Scripture. We then kicked off Sunday Worship with the general epistle of James on November 6th at 10:00 am still in Pastor Mike and Vicki's home. After a few months worshipping in the Bower's home, God provided a new space at the Hampton Inn for 4 years. There were many spiritual victories and growth in our body at that location, but after that space of time, we began to experience the need for a building of our own. Again, we began to pray! God once again faithfully answered our prayers and led us to a former retail building on a well-traveled road in Ringgold, GA in May of 2016.
God certainly taught us with the Spirit-led teaching of His Word, and He had blessed us under the faithful leadership of Pastor Mike Bower, since the founding of the church through those early years!

In the Fall of 2019, Pastor Mike and his wife Vicki believed that God was leading them to retire from the pastorate here in Ringgold and to move out of the north Georgia area to center their lives in a new direction but also to continue to minister where God opened the doors.  So we also, awaiting God's continued leadership, began the search for a new Pastor for Calvary Chapel Ringgold!

There was not a long wait following the many "prayers of faith" within our body of saints.  
During the weeks and months of prayer,  the Lord had been leading a young man with a big heart for loving saints and missionary spirit...and his faithful wife to permanently join with us in study and worship.  Pastor Mike,  and the other members were drawn to Jacob Lamb, wife Karen and their new baby, Ruthie! Their thirst for Bible Teaching, fellowship and God's service was obvious in their lives.  After weeks and months of prayer and discussion with Jacob and our Board of Directors, Pastor Mike officially approached the Board with the name of the young man to be presented as the candidate to be ordained as Lead Pastor of Calvary Chapel in Ringgold, Georgia.

A few months following the official ordination of our new Pastor, Jacob Lamb, it was apparent that the Lord was leading us under Pastor Jacob's leadership to relocate to a newer and more modern space still nearby in the same community.
