In 1983, John Spencer returned to Florida from a trip to San Diego, CA in which he met Pastor Ray Bentley of Maranatha Chapel. Although this was this first meeting, they immediately connected and have maintained a life-long friendship ever since. As John was seeking to clarify his connection to an association of churches, and desire to plant a “Calvary Chapel style” church in his hometown. Pastor Ray suggested, “Go home, rent a school for year, begin teaching the Bible, and let’s see what happens.” Thus, since 1983 Coastline Calvary Chapel has been in association with Calvary Chapel. Calvary Chapel is an association of 1,700 evangelical Christian churches that began in 1965 our of Pastor Chuck Smith’s Calvary Chapel located in Costa Mesa, CA. Pastors Neil, Randy, & Jess have all been trained and served in Calvary Chapel churches and schools.
