CCFP began as an outreach ministry of Gold Country Calvary Chapel in Northern California and under the covering of Far Reaching Ministries. In March 2003 Pastor Douglas and his wife Destiny moved to Uganda with the intention of beginning a Bible teaching church in western Uganda. After working for a year and a half with Calvary Chapel Kampal, the doors opened for them to move to Fort Portal, and in only a few months they were able to find a suitable place to rent and hold church services.
Rather than attempt to build a large church quickly, the desire and vision has always been to build a strong church that would in turn reach out to the world with the gospel of Christ. The feeling at CCFP is one of brotherly love and excitement for God's word. The simple vision the church was founded upon continues to be our vision today; teach the people verse by verse through the Bible, and see what God does. New programs and ministries have arisen, but it has truly been a blessing to see the Lord build His house in the way He desires.
Unless the LORD builds the house, They labor in vain who build it. Ps 127:1
