VISION: to see NEW LIFE in JESUS all along our COASTLINE.

MISSION: to be community LOVING God, CONNECTING together, and LIVING on MISSION in our world.

We gather on Sunday mornings...
to LOVE and worship Jesus through learning, singing, serving, giving, praying, fellowshipping, & taking communion.

We gather in Connect groups...
to CONNECT together and build like-minded fellowship through the application of God's Word & prayer for one another.

We go throughout our communities ...
to live on MISSION with Christ in our homes, neighborhoods, schools, businesses, & beaches.


In October of 1983, Pastor John Spencer, his wife Lynn, and a small group of roughly 30 people gathered on a Sunday morning at Oriole Beach Elementary School in Gulf Breeze, FL as “New Life Christian Fellowship.”
Since that time, the Lord has continued to add to the church. The Gulf Breeze church has purchased land, built buildings, been identified by the name Calvary Chapel Gulf Breeze (circa 1993-2010), and now Coastline Calvary Chapel. God has raised up countless ministries, local and global outreaches, church planters, and missionaries who have been sent out all over the world.

In 2010, God began to expand our vision from Gulf Breeze to see “NEW LIFE in JESUS all along our COASTLINE” by planting collaborative Coastline Calvary Chapel churches who exist to be “a community LOVING God, CONNECTING together, and LIVING on MISSION in our world.”

In 2013 our church, Coastline Calvary Chapel Destin, was planted by Pastor Neil Spencer, who was later called back to Coastline Gulf Breeze. At that time, Pastor Neil brought in Pastor Jess McCurnin to lead Coastline Destin. Pastor Jess McCurnin served at Calvary Chapel Santa Barbara, has been involved in church planting in California, and was a missionary in Ireland until he was called to Pastor Coastline Calvary Chapel Destin.

In 2015, Coastline Calvary Chapel Navarre was planted.

We dream of seeing a family of Calvary Chapel churches along our coastline in this generation so that the next generation can build upon the unity and collaboration to focus on a global initiative to see NEW LIFE in JESUS in all the world through planting churches who Love God, Connect together, and LIVE on MISSION in their world.
