Clark and Sally Van Wick moved to Temecula in 1989, along with their two sons. They came from Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa where they were involved in the Children’s Ministry. Once in Temecula, the Lord put it on Clark’s heart to attend the Bible College in Vista. Around this time, He also opened the door for a Bible study to begin in their home. It started as a small group of people meeting together to study the Word and share Christ’s love. But after only a few short months, the group outgrew the home and the Lord opened the door for them to meet in a recreation center at an apartment complex in Temecula. The Bible study continued to grow in number and within a few months, the group asked Clark to change the meeting day to Sunday and become their pastor.
