Our History

Steve Forrester and Dave Mohler have been friends for years and were serving as pastors in separate ministries within Calvert County. They would meet to pray and encourage one another, and through that time of fellowship, it became clear to them that God was calling them out of their comfort zone to do something different. He was calling them to plant a new church.

Steve and Dave, along with their wives, stepped out in faith in the fall of 2010, and with no promise of help or support from any other church or organization, they each resigned from their ministry positions at their respective churches. They were joined by members of their families and a small group of friends willing to take this leap of faith with them, and on January 9, 2011, Life Church Calvert held its first service at Plum Point Elementary.

On November 10, 2019, Life Church Calvert broke ground on their first permanent home located at 35 Cox Rd in Huntingtown Maryland. March 29, 2021, on Palm Sunday, Life Church Calvert had their first service in their new permanent home. Since then, the church building has become a hub for ministry throughout Calvert County and beyond.
