Chuck Missler raised in Southern California demonstrated an aptitude for technical interests as a youth. He became a ham radio operator at age nine and started piloting airplanes as a teenager. While still in high school, Chuck built a digital computer in the family garage.
His plans to pursue a doctorate in electrical engineering at Stanford University were interrupted when he received a Congressional appointment to the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis. Graduating with honors, Chuck took his commission in the Air Force. After completing flight training, he met and married Nancy. Chuck joined the Missile Program and eventually became Branch Chief of the Department of Guided Missiles.
Over 30 years ago, my life was dramatically touched and transformed by God. As I was searching for meaning and fulfillment on the Las Vegas strip, I found it through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. That relationship grew, and as it did, I began to sense God's plan for my life...A plan that included my wife, Diane, and I moving to South Florida to start a church that would eventually become Calvary Chapel of Fort Lauderdale.
A quarter of a century later, that simple step of faith in what God wanted to do with my life has led to a ministry that continues to impact countless lives around the world. On behalf of the entire leadership team here at Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale, we hope this ministry helps you discover the plan God has in store for you. And as you discover His purpose for your life, we pray you would also experience the joy of seeing Him accomplish and complete the good work that He has begun in you.
"He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ." Philippians 1:6 (NKJV)
