Mount Calvary Deliverance Church was established in Tampa Florida circa April 1999 with 4 members; and has since been added to as God has seen fit.
The Church's vision and ministry has always been geared  to the complete person; it is not enough that the body of Christ only address the spiritual needs of the individual, but we must also address the physical needs as well. Paul brings this point clearly in his prayer for the church at Thessalonica; "And the very God of Peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of Lord Jesus Christ" (I Thessalonians 5:23). It is vital that both the church and pastor think of how to meet the needs and contribute to the spiritual and physical well being of people not only within the congregation but of people in the community as a whole.
As of June 2012, Elder Terrence Shaw was elevated to the position of Senior Pastor of Mount Calvary Deliverance Church. Pastor Shaw believes in establishing Mount Calvary as ray of hope to a dying world in order to take back our communities one at a time. Pastor Shaw is adamant on strengthening the family as God intended it to be and therefore using families as pivotal forces in spreading the Gospel.
Pastor Shaw's vision grows through the example set by his spiritual father, Arch-Bishop Alfred A. Owens, Jr., who has always sought to 'do good in the hood.' We give God the Glory for what He is doing and for the great things he has done!
