Nearly 20,000 people call Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale their church home. Located in the heart of one of Florida’s largest cities, with an estimated population of 180,072, our church embraces and engages the diversity that comes onto our main campus.
While our multi-cultural, multi-generational campus includes a state-of-the-art theatre, a Pre-K-12 school, and a beautifully appointed on-site restaurant, the driving force of everything we do is to make disciples and to replicate that mission in our city and beyond.
So, welcome! Let’s get together so you can see what connects us. And don’t be surprised when you discover that we are connected for a purpose.
“From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.”—Ephesians 4:16 (NIV)
