Calvary Tabernacle Church of God was established as a mission church by Pastor Chris Capaldo, and his wife Debbie, in November of 1998. The church began meeting in a conference room at the Howard Johnsons Hotel in Commack, NY. Shortly thereafter, the church relocated to a union hall facility on Carleton Avenue in East Islip and held services for approximately four years until the purchase of a small church building located at 6 Holbrook Street in Bay Shore.
After time the location of the church became increasingly unsafe due to changes in the area of crime, gangs and drug dealing. Working to reach the community, the church remained in Bay Shore for 8 years. After much prayer, the Lord had given both Pastor Chris and First Lady Debbie a leading to relocate the ministry to their home town of Saint James in the town of Smithtown. Upon knowing this, calls where made to various facilities and the door opened to lease a beautiful church building located at 210 Woodlawn Avenue in the heart of Saint James. Our first service in St. James was held on August 6, 2012.
After 20 years of faithful and fruitful service, Pastor Chris and Debbie Capaldo answered the Lord's call to follow a new ministry season in their lives. On June 30, 2019, Rev. Hiram Claudio, and his wife, Lori, were appointed Pastor and First Lady of Calvary Tabernacle Church of God.
To God Be The Glory.
