About this Church
Chapel City Church is located in Camarillo, California, a largely suburban community of approximately 70,000 in Ventura County. Chapel City Church was first established in 1973 and is a participating member in the Evangelical Free Churches of America. We are an elder-led church with liaisons dedicated to all ministries. Our congregation generally mirrors our community demographics. We are a mix of young and established families with a significant number of retirees.
Our High School ministry is currently served by a group of dedicated volunteers, some of whom have served our students for a number of years. They represent a variety of life stages and circumstances, and provide a wide range of gifts and experiences that greatly bless our students. Our desire is to see our director grow this existing leadership team not only in numbers, but in their walk with Christ and their ability to minister to our students. Our high school ministry currently meets once during the week and on Sunday mornings with an average of 15 students from private, public and home schools.
