In 2005, the leadership of Calvary Baptist Church in Chula Vista elected to cease operations as an independent church and merge with EastLake Church. Because their church facility was no longer in position to grow and reach new families, the church property was sold and the funds were used to assist with facility expansions and new church launches in the EastLake Church Network, allowing the legacy of Calvary Baptist Church to assist with reaching new, young families for Jesus. Calvary Baptist’s Pastor, Bob Henson, joined the staff of EastLake Church, serving in pastoral care and helping to mentor young pastors.
