More Info

God’s Word is a “lamp for our feet, and a light for our path” (Psalm 119:105). God gives light on Sundays as the Word is sung and preached, but He also enlightens us Monday-Saturday as well.

This archive of our worship services is available to you anytime for your learning & reflection.

Our Beliefs

It’s all about relationships. We believe in one God eternally existing in three persons: the Creator, Christ Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. As Three-in-One, God is relational, and is seeking to redeem and restore all relationships: with us, with each other, and with all creation. God is accomplishing this through the death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus, and through His church.

We are a member church of the Reformed Church in America, whose beliefs can be found here:

Our Neighborhood

Calvary’s people are spread throughout the city, but our home base is on W. 65th St. in the Cleveland EcoVillage, located within the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood. We are two miles west of Downtown Cleveland and minutes away from the shores of Lake Erie, and the nationally celebrated Gordon Square Arts District. We seek to love and serve our community in the name of Jesus.

About Us

Calvary Reformed Church is a Christ-centered, multi-ethnic congregation in the Detroit-Shoreway [Gordon Square] neighborhood of Cleveland, OH. Our mission is to “plant Clevelanders in Christ” through worship, discipleship, creation care, gaming, and food ministries. Our pastor is Rev. Dean Van Farowe, who has shepherded us since the year 2000. We are a member church of the Reformed Church in America.

Our Pastor

Dean was born and raised in the Midwest, and graduated from Western Theological Seminary (RCA) in the year 2000. He enjoys the varied activities of pastoring, including guiding Calvary believers as their faith develops and helping them find a ministry to serve the Lord with their particular gifts.

Dean is part-time with Calvary and part-time with the Evangelical Environmental Network as their Ohio Outreach Coordinator, which aligns well with Calvary’s creation care work. Dean has a certificate in environmental ministry from McCormick Seminary.

Dean & his wife Christine have been married for 21 years and have three children: a daughter who is in high school and twin sons in college. Dean enjoys playing guitar, and hiking on the Buckeye Trail.


The leadership team of a Reformed church is called a Consistory. It is made up of Elders, Deacons, and Pastors. Here is our Consistory for 2024.
