Stones of remembrance

 

1985

God started working in the heart of our founding pastor, Jim O'Keefe, to fulfill his calling to ministry while he lived in Southern California.  He was serving under Pastor Greg Laurie, senior Pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship, Riverside.  In 1985 God drew Jim O'Keefe to start a new work for Harvest in the nation's capital.  Responding to this call, he moved his young family to Northern Virginia, where he started an evening Bible study.  That simple gathering grew to become Harvest Christian Fellowship of Greater Washington, DC with Jim O'Keefe serving as Senior Pastor joined later by Noel Wetter joined him as the Associate Pastor.

1996

In the early years of Harvest in Northern Virginia, the church met in temporary facilities.  In 1996, the fellowship purchased a home at Isaac Newston Square in Reston, Virginia.  The facility provided a place for regular fellowship, worship and counseling throughout the week, with classroom and office space.  The church continues to meet at this location to this day.

2012

Tommy O'Keefe, Pastor Jim's son, became the Senior Pastor when Jim Stepped down from full-time pastoral ministry to establish a new ministry founded upon the call of Ephesians 4:12 "to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up."  The ministry is called Equipping The Saints - 412.  Jim now imparts the experience and wisdom given by God to other pastors and teachers across the country and around the world, preaching and teaching - equipping leaders to serve and equipping servants to lead.

2014​

Tom O'Keefe, following a calling of God to reach the people in the inner city with the Gospel, stepped down from his Pastor position at Harvevst and moved his young family to Washington DC, where he now serves through Bible studies and church ministries in the inner city.  It was at this time that Harvest Christian Fellowship changed its name to Calvary Chapel Reston Station in keeping with the original association with the Calvary Chapel Association of Churches under the leadership of Calvary Chapel, Costa Mesa and Pastor Chuck Smith.

2015

After a short period without a permanent pastor, one more stone of remembrance was laid when Pastor Sean Adinig became the Senior Pastor of Calvary Chapel Reston Station.  Sean came to CCRS from a local Calvary Chapel, with a clear calling upon his life for teaching the Word and shepherding the people of God for ministry, service and sharing the Gospel with the World.

who we are

 

At Calvary Chapel Reston Station, our utmost desire is for all to know Jesus Christ and be conformed into His image by the working of the Holy Spirit. As a result of that conviction, our services place a great emphasis upon teaching the Word of God, that the Holy Spirit would instruct and equip His people for worship, witness, and the work of the ministry here in Northern Virginia, the Greater Washington DC area, and to the uttermost parts of the world.


The Bible says, "Where there is no vision, the people perish... Therefore our vision is clearly stated and ever before us, ...that he may run that readeth it."


WIN people to Jesus Christ

DISCIPLE people in Jesus Christ

SEND people for Jesus Christ


We believe our worship of God should be spiritual, inspirational, and purposeful. Therefore, we declare these objectives and desire to remain yielded to the Holy Spirit to realize and accomplish them.


EXALT the name, the work, and the person of Jesus Christ.

EXHORT one another to love and good works.

EXTEND our hands and our hearts to those in need.


We believe that the only true basis of Christian fellowship is in and through God's love, which is able to overcome all shortcomings in ourselves and without which we cannot truly and completely walk-out God's call to love Him and love our neighbor.
