History of Calvary

Calvary Lutheran Church was formed as a mission church in June 1969 to serve the growing areas of Oshkosh west of U.S. Highway 41. Rev. Alan Madson was the first pastor of the congregation and served until 1973. He was succeeded by

Rev. Robert Rosenberg who served as pastor from 1973 until his retirement in May 2005. Rev. Timothy Routh served as pastor from July 2006 through October 2017.


Pastor Doug Holtz joined Calvary in December 2018. Today Calvary moves forward using his gifts of leadership, creativity, spiritual motivation, Biblical teaching, music, and (of course) his colorful shoes. His sermons aren't bad either.  


Calvary continues  to minister families in the Oshkosh and surrounding areas. We are a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Within that association, we proclaim Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, and regard the Holy Scriptures as normative for our faith and life.
