In 2004, Pastor Bryant led the congregation to purchase a 26,000 square foot warehouse in the heart of San Francisco to become a campus for change. The first phase was completed in October 2006, a 500-seat theatrical style contemporary worship center with open staging and media center for live television and radio. In 2007, the church completed a 150-seat Chapel that is used to support other congregations, community activities and the Calvary Hill Youth Ministry. In 2009 the church opened a full service Bookstore, and a state of the art Fitness Center with certified personal training. In 2012 Calvary Hill opened THE R.O.C.K. Center (Reaching Our Community & Kids), a community youth center which houses THE VISION ACADEMY, a year-round program which offers tutoring, computer literacy, social skills development, and is a certified afterschool and summer nutrition location for school aged children in San Francisco. A concentrated focus on inner city youth has also yielded a tremendous Music and Arts production called P.H.A.T.T. Friday (Praise Him All The Time) which showcases talented young people in song, dance, poetry, drama and other artistic expressions. Most notably, since 2006 the church has added more than 1000 new souls, has a current membership of over 1,500 people.
Dr. Bryant serves as Chief Executive Officer of Calvary Hill Social Services, and oversees partnerships and community programs with several civic agencies and community organizations. Pastor Bryant is also the Director of the Calvary Hill Christian Leadership School, an extension program through Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary which offers a Diploma in Christian Ministry on the church campus. Dr. Bryant is a graduate of the University of California in Santa Cruz (B.A. in Sociology, 1991), Patten Christian College (Multiple-subject Teaching Credential, 1994) and Golden Gate Seminary (M.A. in Theological Studies, 2003). Nationally acclaimed and acknowledged for his remarkable life and ministry achievements, he was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Ministry Degree from St. Thomas Christian College in 2004. He is the author of two books, It’s Work, But It’s Worth It, a study guide on marriage, and Family Matters: Encouraging Healthy People and Happy Families. Pastor Bryant values above all else his wonderful family: His wife, Lady Kelly S. Bryant, and their two children Josiah Christopher and Joi Christina, who are the joy of his heart.
