Our Story

How it all started...

In 1965, the first Calvary Chapel was started in Costa Mesa, California as a small, non-denominational church of 25 members, pastored by Chuck Smith. It has been estimated that over 8,000 baptisms were performed in a two year period at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa in the mid 70’s. During that same period, Pastor Chuck Smith and his church were instrumental in bringing 20,000 conversions to the Christian faith. Chuck Smith has come to be known as a leading figure in what is today called “The Jesus Movement.” Naturally, those saved and discipled spread across the country and world to form what has become known as the Calvary Chapel Movement.

Expanding the vision...

Calvary Chapel Kaiserslautern began in 2002 when Pastor David Ball started a bible study in a living room with three couples. With a strong emphasis on teaching God’s word verse by verse, the church has ministered to thousands over the years through a variety of bible studies, ministries and missions trips. Pastor Dave currently teaches on Sunday morning and Wednesday evening.
 
In more than a decade Pastor Dave and his wife Peggy have watched their family grow. Today they have two children and two grandchildren. And their spiritual family continues to grow as well.
