Our Story

How it all started...

Calvary Chapel LAX began in 1999 in a small apartment located in Culver City, CA.  It was a bold leap of faith that led Pastor Daniel Heard and his wife Aimee to start a church here in the LA area, where they faithfully served God for over 20 years. Several years after the start of the church, a young man by the name of Justin Beck would attend a New Years Eve service and give his life to Christ that same night. At age 19 Justin began to lead worship at CCLAX and serve God while attending Biola University.

In 2002 Justin met Anysia, and the two were married in March of 2006.
As the church grew so did the Pastoral staff, and in 2007 Justin became ordained as a Pastor. Justin continued to serve faithfully as Worship leader, while his role as Associate Pastor included many other ministry opportunities. At the end of 2018 Pastor Daniel and his wife Aimee felt called by the Lord to move on from serving at CCLAX. It was in April of 2019 that Pastor Justin accepted the role of teaching Pastor here at CCLAX. Pastor Justin and his wife love serving the Lord, and His people. They have been blessed with 4 children; 3 boys and 1 princess in heaven.
