Church History

 
The honorable Late Reverend Roy W. Johnson was the founder of Mount Calvary Community Church and the first Vice President under the Late Reverend Clarence H. Cobbs of the Metropolitan Spiritual Churches of Christ. He preached his first sermon at the age of fourteen. He grew spiritually and in the knowledge of Christ under the guidance and leadership of both the Late Bishop William F. Taylor and  the Late Elder Leviticus L. Boswell, who were the rolex uk founders and pastors of the Metropolitan Spiritual Church of Kansas City, Missouri.

 

In the month of December of 1932 following the leading of the Holy Spirit, Reverend Johnson came to Omaha, Nebraska with only thirty-five cents in his possession. In January 1933 he organized the Metropolitan Spiritual Church of Omaha, Nebraska, which was later renamed Mount Calvary Community Church. He pastored there until his transition from mortal to immortality in June 1975.

 

No one was surprised that Rev. Roy W. Johnson was the first minister from Metropolitan to go out and start his own church. His drive, energy and desire for independence was always there. Just as important, in his case God had given him the right helpmate. Mother Ethel Lee Johnson felt the spiritual strength of his call to Omaha and her support was unshakeable and unbreakable from the very beginning.

 

Rev. Johnson began holding services in a larger private home, and then quickly went through a succession of churches. Each time, he would purchase building materials and try to expand the facility to its maximum capacity. Finally, in 1937, Rev. Johnson was able to purchase a corner plot of land at the address of 2426 Grant Street Omaha, Nebraska. The church that he and the original congregation members built by hand on that site would stand as Rev. Johnson's living legacy for next 50 years.

 

By the mid-1940's the new sanctuary was packed for every morning service. Rev. Johnson's preaching, self-assurance, humor, irresistible charm, good looks and astonishing flair in pastoral clothing, turned Mount Calvary into a magnet for the Omaha community. He was the pacesetter in Omaha. For example, Mount Calvary was the first black church in Omaha to use the electric organ and drums in the service. Many people from other churches would come to Mount Calvary for their Sunday evening services because of the power of God that would fall in the church. Just as in Kansas City, any musician who joined Mount Calvary joined the church band.

 

Reverend Roy W. Johnson passed away at his home in 1975. He was 72 years old at the time. The Assistant Pastor Reverend Alonzo Frazier, a native of Omaha, served as Acting pastor from July 1975 until early June of 1976 when he was formally installed as the second pastor of Mount Calvary. He led the church for eight years and presided over the church's fiftieth anniversary. He eventually resigned his position as the Pastor. His tenure was from June 1975 to June 1983.

 

In August of 1983 Bishop William Henry Foeman was called to be the Pastor of Mount Calvary and was formally installed as the third Pastor in November of 1983. Under the leadership and guidance of Bishop Foeman, Mount Calvary grew even more and with the vision that God had given him, he was able with the help of the Lord to move the church from 2426 Grant Street to its present location. It is the "CHURCH ON THE HILL" located at 5112 Ames Avenue Omaha, Nebraska 68104.  O what a great day that was to march into the new church edifice from Grant Street to Ames Avenue with everything that was needed for the ministry. It was not easy to obtain the present location but God favored Bishop Foeman and the people of God to do what most people in the city of Omaha did not think could be done.  Bishop Foeman was well known and loved and his legacy will live on.

 

On Tuesday, October 9, 2012 Bishop William Foeman fell asleep to forever eternally be with the Lord. After the death of Bishop Foeman, in November of 2012, Reverend Robert Rodgers became the Interim Pastor until the Lord directed the church for the next leader that should Pastor the flock of God.

 

After much prayer, fasting and seeking God for direction, on Friday, September 26, 2014, Pastor James P. Walker was voted in as the fourth Senior Pastor of Mount Calvary Community Church.  This humble man of God has brought the Word of God, great vision, purpose and joy to the Mount Calvary members and community at large. To God be the glory for the things that he has done! As history would have it, just like the Late Mother Ethel Lee Johnson, Lady Schenner Walker felt the same spiritual strength of Pastor James P. Walkers call to Omaha from Baltimore, Maryland and her support is unshakeable and unbreakable from the very beginning, even to now.
