Calgary Chinese Pentecostal Church is a multigenerational, multiethnic church comprised of about 350 people in total. It is made up of Cantonese speaking, Mandarin speaking and English speaking fellowships. The leadership of this church is made up of three Associate Pastor positions, one for each fellowship, and a Board of Deacons elected to represent all three fellowships. The English Ministries is comprised of around 100 who are mostly second generation Chinese Canadians. There are many professionals and most are college educated. The bulk of the current congregation is comprised of young working age adults and young families with children, as well as a very significant youth component. CCPC EM has a well-established heart for ministry. The majority of the congregation is involved in some aspect of church life. One of the strengths of this fellowship is in the area of music ministry with a number of worship teams in place. There is an ongoing vision to train up young people from within and raise them up to give leadership within the Youth and Children’s ministries. Although we are called to share Christ with all people, we realize our greatest potential lies with targeting second-generation Chinese from the workplace around us.
