Life Church Calvert is a young, non-denominational church which desires to see people find real life and purpose in a genuine relationship with Jesus Christ. At Life Church Calvert there are no perfect people, many of us are facing great challenges in today’s world. But be encouraged, Jesus offers us hope! We trust you will find Life Church to be a warm, inviting, and nurturing place to worship God and grow in your faith.
It is all because of Jesus. It’s all for Him and He deserves all the glory.
God’s Kingdom is always advancing and He uses His people to advance it. Anyone who is willing to submit to His will and follow Him in faith will never be disappointed. That story has been repeated time and time again, and it is also the story of Life Church.
Commit your work to the LORD, and your plans will be established.
In 2010, Steve Forrester and Dave Mohler were serving as pastors in separate ministries within Calvert County. Steve and Dave would say that they were both “comfortable” but realized that they weren’t necessarily taking any risks for the Kingdom. Steve and Dave began meeting together to pray and encourage one another and in the months that followed it became clear to Steve and Dave that God was calling them out of there comfort zone. God was calling Steve and Dave to do something different, He was calling them to plant a new church.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
Steve and Dave, along with their wives, stepped out in faith in the fall of 2010. With no promise of help or support from any other church or organization, they each resigned from their ministry positions at their respective churches. In the weeks to come, Steve and Dave were joined by members of their families and a small group of friends who were willing to take this leap of faith with them. On January 9, 2011, Life Church held its first service at Plum Point Elementary, with a core group of (14) people, and 65 well-wishers.
There are amazing stories of how God provided at every turn for this work. He graciously supplied places to live, jobs, a place to worship and most importantly, he provided people to serve and lead ministries essential for building His church. What started out as a handful of individuals has grown to the church you see today.
