Who We Are
A SNAPSHOT OF OUR HISTORY
Calvary SF started in the summer of 2010. We got our start in the Fort Mason Center in the Marina District. And in May of 2012 we moved to the Clay Theatre of Fillmore. We are a part of the Calvary Chapel movement, an association of churches that are excited about Jesus, committed to teaching the Bible, and dependent on the Spirit.
We are pleased to call Calvary San Francisco our home church. Atul works as an executive advisor to CEOs of large corporation on issues of strategy, innovation, and growth. Annikki homeschools our three daughters, Maya (age 10), Sonja (8), and Jayna (5) and serves on the board of directors of a local Christian Home School Co-Op. Prior to moving the San Francisco in 2011, we were active members of Riverdale Ministries in the Washington, DC area, where Atul served as the Treasurer and Annikki helped to lead the youth program. Atul and Annikki both received Christ as a young married couple and are excited to spread His Good News in the Bay Area.
April grew up in Columbus, GA with parents that firmly believe in the power of prayer and received Christ as her savior at an early age. She moved to San Francisco in August of 2011 to pursue her graduate degree at the San Francisco Art Institute. While in the painting program, her focus is Performance Art. Using food in performance reminds April of her parents, who often use anointing oil in prayer and practice communion. April enjoys cooking, baking, British melodramas and hanging out with a strong cup of coffee or herbal tea.
