In the early 1980s Rev E. S. McKeen came with his family from eastern Canada to Calgary to establish our church. Bethel United Pentecostal Church originally started in the downtown area of Calgary then moved into the Northeast quadrant of the city. Rev McKeen passed on to be with the Lord in May 2019. He was slated to do the dedication of our new location just weeks later. In respect, we are placing and dedicating to Brother McKeen's memory a new pulpit and matching communion table after we get settled in at 2220 39th Ave. NE. The legacy of Bother McKeen is held in high regard by many people connected to United Pentecostal churches across Canada.
In July of 2007, Pastor Henry Poitras came to pastor Bethel. Over the last few years the church has experienced a revival with now 30 cultural backgrounds worshiping together, as a leading United Pentecostal Church in Alberta.
In 2012 the church moved from Airways Industrial Park to Marlborough Park. In 2013 we decided to take on the title of “The Pentecostals of Calgary”. Our vision is to maintain one main church location/beachhead with church happening in the West and South of Calgary too, and also in the surrounding towns.
In Fall/Winter 2019 we started the move to our new home in Airways Industrial area close to Barlow and McKnight. The new location is 2220 39th Ave. NE. It is presently under total renovation.
We look forward to you joining us, and our together seeing this church mission and miracle continue throughout Calgary and beyond.
