New Purpose for Parker House

We are super excited about a re-purposing project, one that will give us a unique way to build relationships with and practically support our career Impact Partners. In December, a Career Missions Team proposal was approved to make our property at 1027 Parker into a home base for our Calvary Church Impact Partners when they are in the U.S. for an extended home stay.


We have an aggressive timeline for getting this home—which will be called Home Base—ready to be a way we can  support our career missionaries:

January 2019
Updating exterior siding, roofing, windows, and insulation.
February 2019
Interior projects begin with volunteer teams, design team planning and implementing ideas.
May 2019
Plumbing and drainage projects, installation of re-purposed furnace and AC units from 1041 Parker Avenue house.
July 2019
Home Base policy and procedures sent to all Calvary Impact workers along with calendar and reservation process.
December 2019
Interior and exterior projects completed and open house held for church and neighbors.
January 2020
Home Base open for our first Impact Partner guests.


Here are the people with the passion to make this dream to a reality.

Policy and Procedure Team Vonn Dornbush, Ralph Gustafson, Duane Harms, Bruce McClay, and Marcella Raine.

Interior Design Team Maggie Anderson, Carol Harms, Jan McFall, Kaaren Tyvoll, and Linda Wicklund.
