How did God lead you to Calvary Chapel West Jacksonville?
During a time in my life I was very down and discouraged about going to Church, God I know lead me to this place because of my complacincies of my walk. I started staying home on Sunday’s and listening and watching churches on the technologies available. I watched Calvary Ft Lauderdale services on Sunday mornings and went to several churches locally around Orange Park trying to find a new church I could call home. In 2010 a friend that I met at a Calvary church informed me that CCF was meeting in Oakleaf Plantation and I should check it out. When I attended CCF, the Lord gave me a peace about being a part of the fellowship. A short time after, my family started to attend and the Lord opened up an opportunity for me to serve during the 2010 Easter service.

I am very thankfull for the hard working people that have come along side for every service, Gods work can’t be done without their hard work and dedication to Him! I am also very thankful for Pastor Allen, and for him to be Gods messenger to spread Gods Word.
