Pastors desperately need our prayers. When attending a church like Mt. Calvary Pentecostal Church in Youngstown, OH-now Calvary Ministries International, you have to take great care that your service is toward God and not toward man. When we direct our "allegiance" to an institution or a person, we need to know clearly the people and the organization. Is it a Church or a Corporation? Is the Leader a humble servant or a Narcissist. Are we to establish Academy's, Schools, Hair Salons, etc. All of these are noble ambitions, but Christ came to seek and to save those who are lost. That is Christ's Mission. Building a "City of God" why? Is this a man's vision or God's commandment? Is God not happy with the City He has? Are His mansions in heaven insufficient? The resources lost in this "vision" could have helped the lives of so many of God's little children on earth. As a former member of this church, I witnessed behavior and doctrine by the past Bishop (Dr. Wagner) and members (not all) that was cult like. Here are some: The Bishop- "If you leave before your time you will kill somebody." The Bishop, when referring to saints leaving his church "to whom shall you go." The Bishop speaking to the clergy "I am the one." The Bishop in reference to the-City of God ??this is the place.? A member speaking to another member "I fear for anyone that leaves Calvary." The Bishop-slamming his office door before gathering with church leaders. These are just a few intimidating and will bending behaviors that was witnessed by myself and others. Christians often-times set out to perform what is right, but miss the mark because of ego, pride, and improper passions. When a church and/or its pastor starts to demonstrate cult like attributes, the pastor and the pew have lost balance.Thus, it becomes the responsibility of us all to fix it and not feed it. The heart of a man, his thoughts and motives can only be appraised by one. And that is God. It is our job to examine the fruit and take note of what is falling and hanging from that tree. If it is leaven that doesn't align with scripture-Beware!

As a Child that has BOTH grown up in theChurch and gone through the school I strongly have to disagree with the last two reviews. Many children have gone thru the halls of Calvary Christian Academy and come out REAL Doctors, Lawyers, Statesman and a variety of other successful careers. The Current Mayor of Youngstown is a Graduate of Calvary Christian Academy. The values, morals, and discipline gained from attending the school can not be found elsewhere. Our Beloved former Pastor did his very best to instill in each and every student and member of the church not only Leadership skills, and the Sound doctrine of the Faith, but also the mindset of reaching for the impossible. You do not have to become a product of your environment, just another statistic but you can and WILL be more because God has placed more in you. As far as the "occult" mention......let's be serious. It's a church, where there is a church family feel.We worship One God and his name is Jesus that's it. Now as with ANY church there are people, and some people are where problems lay NOT the church as a whole. There are problems and situations the same as with ANY other church but that's not what we go to church for. The worship experiences are OUT of this world, and the Spoken Word is straight from Heaven. The services are streamed over the internet every Sunday on Calvary4U.org so if you can't physically be there you can still be apart of the services and be Blessed. My parents made the right decision to move here for the church and school and now that I'm an adult I KNOW I made the right decision to stay. So to you who is unsure just pray about it, seek God and listen to HIS voice. Hope to see you there! Be Blessed....

I was mistreated greatly at this school not only that when I finally got out I almost flunked public school because I was ill-prepared. This is a cult like setting in terms of church and suggest that if u go, u never let ur children out of ur sight bcuz they will touch and molest them and use threats against u if u try 2 do anything legally about. Look up key words like "brainwashing" and "triggers" - but it's a great place 2 visit a couple of times just 4 the experience.

Along with having a dynaic leader in Bishop Norman l. Wagner;Clavary has one of the best private elementary schools in the local area, At Calvary; all students are treated equal but will get some religious doctrination not found in most publc schools. It also has a City of God in the process of being renovtaed in the old I dora Park property , which will house businesses, hairsalons included where the people of God will be able to utilize and maintain thgemselves. Clavary alo participates in many interfaith and community activities. we are honred to have it in our ecoinomically depressed area as it broadcasts worldwide, teaching younger people the skills of radio ands television broadcaast hwie exposing them to good, clean liuving.

PROS: it is a great place to be if you hold the same beliefs
CONS: thye believe that Jesus is God, Obne faith and One Baptism
