Calvary Chapel Association

Don McClure has served with Calvary Chapel since 1971 when he came on staff at Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa as an assistant to Pastor Chuck Smith.   Since that time, he planted Calvary Chapel Bible College, which is now located at Murrieta in California.  In addition, he has been instrumental in planting and pastoring a number of Calvary Chapels in the California area.

In mid-2012 Pastor Chuck Smith decided to turn the leadership of the 1500 Calvary Chapel ministries over to a council of 11 men.  At that time, the council asked Don to help administrate the activities of the newly formed Calvary Chapel Association.  Towards that end, Don dedicates approximately a quarter of his time working with the movement while still keeping quite active in his and Jean’s teaching ministry, Calvary Way, that serves individual churches, missions, Bible colleges, and intern programs around the world.

Both Don and Jean McClure consider this time of their ministry life as the busiest, yet most thrilling and rewarding ever.
