Who We Are

We are an outreach ministry of Calvary Chapel Golden Springs with Pastor Raul Ries and we are blessed to serve in the same region as Calvary Chapel Sioux Falls.

Calvary Chapel South Sioux City was birthed decades ago through the prayers and tears of two meek South American missionaries, Ed and Noami Farrell (South Sioux City, Nebraska natives and the parents of Sharon Ries), and through the radical redemption of the violent life of a southern Californian street thug from Mexico City named Raul Ries. Please visit www.calvarygs.org for details of Pastor Raul’s testimony and ministry.

Years later God would begin to inspire a young and very passionate believer named Tim Hall with his pregnant wife Zully and three young children (Noah, Lilly, and Abby) to move to the Siouxland area to start a simple Bible study. Ruby Esther would be born 3 months later on a snowy mid-west winter day.

Offically, CCSSC was birthed on Sept 9, 2010 as six adults, three children, and one dog (Blue) would gather at the Hall’s small two-bedroom/one-bath rented house to studying through the Book of Ephesians.

Please continue to pray for this work, the church, and the leadership of Calvary Chapel South Sioux City as God graciously expands our borders and ministries.  May we exist to be God’s sent Rufuge in our beloved community.
