Calvary Family Church International

The origins of Calvary Family Church International go back in the mid-70s when a young Madalitso Mbewe, inspired by the calling of God, initiated the Young Believers Fellowship (YBF) in Blantyre, Malawi, This city, not far from Kondanani Children’s Village was named after the birthplace of Scottish missionary explorer, David Livingstone who has had a profound spiritual impact on the nation.

At that time, YBF stood out as one of the few genuinely Pentecostal ministries in Malawi. In the 80s, as the fellowship attracted the interest of both the young and the elderly, its name evolved into Pentecostal Revival Crusades (PRC) Ministries, reflecting a commitment to inclusivity. PRC witnessed substantial growth, extending its reach to other cities like Lilongwe and Mzuzu, and other districts.

Following prayer and discussions with the leadership of PRC Ministries, Apostle Madalitso Mbewe announced the intention to introduce church services as an aspect to the interdenominational fellowship ministry. Consequently, in 1992, Calvary Family Church was inaugurated. The first service, held on January 12th, 1992, at Pemba building in Blantyre, drew an average attendance of 12 people.

Today, Calvary Family Church International has it’s headquarters in Blantyre with about 40 branches in Malawi and several outside the country. These include the neighbouring African countries of Zimbabwe, Mozambique, South Africa, Tanzania, Kenya. Calvary Family Church also has a thriving community in the United Kingdom.
