Our History

In the late 1960s, Pastor Chuck Smith of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa was entrusted by God with a work of the Holy Spirit that would play an important role in what came to be known as the Jesus Movement. During that movement, hundreds of disillusioned young people were saved through faith in Jesus Christ. Calvary Chapel became a place where these new believers were free to introduce a new form of worship, which today is known as Contemporary Christian Worship. This form of worship included less formal attire, a more laid-back atmosphere, and the beginnings of a more contemporary worship music style that many churches (both non-denominational and denominational) include in their worship services today. These days, Calvary Chapels can be found all over the world and are best known for simply teaching the Word of God, verse by verse, from Genesis to Revelation.

Calvary Chapel Flower Mound (CCFM) was started when Pastor Jon Bell, an Associate Pastor at Calvary Chapel Pacific Hills, answered a call from the Lord to start a church in Flower Mound, Texas. Pastor Jon and his family moved to Texas in the spring of 2004 and began holding services in their living room the first Sunday of May. Two months later, the church moved into Blue Ribbon Preschool in Flower Mound, and soon a midweek service was added. In August of 2006, the church began to hold Sunday Morning Services in the cafeteria inside Marcus High School in Flower Mound and eventually moved to the school auditorium. On June 7, 2009, Calvary Chapel Flower Mound moved into our current location at 1001 Cross Timbers Rd., Suite 1050, Flower Mound, TX 75028.

Now there are people attending our services from all over the Metroplex, including the surrounding communities of Highland Village, The Colony, Plano, Lewisville, Justin, Denton, Fort Worth, and beyond. We stream our services on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter, so people all over the world are watching our services over the Internet.
