CrossHope Chapel is part of the Calvary Global Network, a community of churches committed to Great Commission engagement, affiliated with Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa.
However, I am not affiliated with the Calvary Chapel Association because a split occurred before I made any formal affiliation with the Calvary Chapel Association, leaving that relationship in a wait and see mode.
In November of 2016, a split occurred between the Calvary Chapel Association and Brian Brodersen, the senior pastor of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, who succeeded the Calvary Chapel founder, Chuck Smith. In a nutshell, the Calvary Chapel Association believes it is the successor to leadership of Calvary Chapel movement, not Brian Brodersen and Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa.
You can read a post titled “Calvary Chapel Split” where I share more about that split on how I became connected with the Calvary Chapel movement.
There is another church in Mobile that is aligned with the Calvary Chapel Association, but not the Calvary Global Network. We both share the same Calvary Chapel doctrines but differ on our approach to gathering for worship and the word on Sunday morning.
CrossHope Chapel intentionally follows more of a simple New Testament model of casual gatherings, with simple worship, prayer for one another, and a conversational thru-the-Bible teaching. You can read more about our approach to doing church together at our Your First Visit page.
