Our Story

In 2006, a small handful of people gathered together at one of their homes to discuss their common calling. They felt that God was leading them to start a church that was different from what any of them were used to. They wanted to strip away the excess junk that often comes bundled with organized religion. They believed that instead, the focus should be on building a pure, simple relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

Less than two months later, Community Life Church held its first worship service, at an elementary school in Forney, Texas. Over the next decade, God allowed c|Life to grow, first to a permanent campus in Forney, followed by another several years later in nearby Sunnyvale. We now have four permanent campuses, in Forney, Sunnyvale, Kaufman, and Rockwall. Since those first Sundays at the elementary school, our mission — connecting people to God and one another — has remained the same.

Our Leadership

Our Co-Pastors

One of the first things people notice about c|Life is that we don't follow the traditional model of a modern church, led by a single senior pastor. We actually have three co-pastors who, along with a board of overseers, collectively help shepherd the church as outlined in Scripture. We consider c|Life to be staff-guided and overseer-guarded, moving  forward together, united in our commitment to be the Church.

Our co-pastors, David Griffin, Paul McDill and Randy Wade, have served in this role at c|Life since it began. Their shared commitment to the God-given vision for the church, as well as the accountability provided by having three equal leaders, ensures that no one person has the ability to turn c|Life into anything other than what God intended. This model also allows the co-pastors, along with our other teaching pastors, to rotate preaching duties from campus to campus each week, which helps keep the focus on the message being taught, rather than the personality delivering it.
