Fort Lauderdale

Nearly 20,000 people call Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale their church home. Located in the heart of one of Florida’s largest cities, with an estimated population of 180,072, our church embraces and engages the diversity that comes onto our main campus.

While our multi-cultural, multi-generational campus includes a state-of-the-art theatre, a Pre-K-12 school, and a beautifully appointed on-site restaurant, the driving force of everything we do is to make disciples and to replicate that mission in our city and beyond.

So, welcome! Let’s get together so you can see what connects us. And don’t be surprised when you discover that we are connected for a purpose.

“From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.”—Ephesians 4:16 (NIV)

Pastor Doug Sauder

Doug Sauder has served as the lead pastor of Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale and its regional campuses since May 2014. Before his role as lead pastor, he was a founding member and president of 4KIDS and an associate pastor at Calvary Chapel since January 2000.

As a former educator, youth pastor, and foster parent, he is a passionate advocate for kids in crisis and author of the book The One Factor: How One Changes Everything. He also serves as a leading voice in Church United, a movement of gospel-centered, city-focused churches in South Florida uniting for the sake of one mission.

He and his wife Suzanne have been married since February 1993 and are raising their three sons of thunder, Jackson, Kaden, and Kennedy.

What to Expect

Here's an idea of what to expect when you arrive at Calvary . . .
Are childcare and/or Calvary Kids/Youth Services available?

How long is the service?

Our services are typically 70 minutes—this includes a powerful time of worship and a practical, inspiring Bible teaching.

What should I wear?

At Calvary, our heart is for you to come as you are. For some, this means jeans and t-shirts; for others, a suit and tie. We don’t have a dress code. We’re genuinely interested in you, not your attire.

Can I attend if…?

Fill in the blank with whatever fear you have about not being accepted: divorced, single parent, broke, recovering addict, gay, transgender, member of another faith group, atheist, skeptic, etc. We want you to know that everyone is welcome at Calvary. So, come as you are, and we’ll see you at service!
