In 1998 Wildwood Calvary Chapel began as a home fellowship in Wildwood Canyon in Yucaipa. It was Pastor Chris’ heart to be committed to what the Lord had shown to the early church in Acts 2:42. They continued steadfastly in the apostles doctrine, and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. That intimate home fellowship gathering began to grow and within a short time four other home fellowships had been started. Through much prayer and several months of meeting in homes, the Lord had impressed upon pastor Chris’ heart to begin Sunday services.

In April of 1998, Wildwood Calvary Chapel had is first Sunday service at Wildwood Canyon Park. We had sixty people show up and a church had been birthed. The Lord would begin to open the doors to meet in schools, parks, homes, community centers and coffee shops. Wherever He opened the door for us to gather, we did so. We committed to feeding the sheep and reaching the lost and God was faithful to grant us a place to meet.

In 2006, the Lord opened the doors for Wildwood Calvary Chapel to purchase 16 acres of land on the corner of Oak Glen Road and Bryant Street in the heart of Yucaipa. Three years later the Lord miraculously paid the land off in full and we started putting together a master plan for future facilities. In 2013, the first phase was built that now houses four weekend services where Pastor Chris teaches through the New Testament verse by verse. We offer a midweek where the assisting pastors teach through the Old Testament, a midweek study for both men and women’s, a young adult fellowship as well as a number of different serving opportunities for the body to grow it's faith. In Spring of 2015, God birthed Wildwood Christian Academy, a school committed to discipling our elementary students in the faith. As you can see, God is doing amazing things at Wildwood! We are carrying out His vision to equip the saints and reach the lost in this beautiful community of Yucaipa and Calimesa. And after many years we are still committed to the same principles found in Acts 2:42. We encourage you to come and join us as we grow together…
