About Us…

CrossHope Chapel, Mobile, ALCrossHope Chapel is a non-denominational Bible teaching church that is a bit laid-back, more relaxed, personal, and casual than your typical traditional church.

We don’t have pews, offering plates, or membership roles, but follow a New Testament model of being more relational in our fellowship not religious in our format.

We gather in the Lordship of Jesus Christ with the purpose of growing in His grace. What matters to us is conversational thru-the-Bible teaching not lectures, individuals not big crowds, and authentic worship not flashy productions.

We have nothing against big churches and awesome worship programs, but we want to do at least one thing well, and that is to simply teach the Bible simply.

We gather on Sunday mornings at 10:00 AM, start with fellowship and coffee, before we enjoy a time of worship and a thru-the-Bible teaching with Pastor Steve Durkac with opportunity to ask questions.

We have room to grow in our church gatherings with a desire to reach and include in our fellowship others, who like us, aren’t connecting with traditional congregations or just looking for something simpler, maybe smaller, and un-denominational.



Our Purposes…

We seek to be a church where one can “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18),

We seek to be a church where we continue “steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers” (Acts 2:42),

We seek to be a church where we believe our Lord’s promise that “where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them” (Matthew 18:20).


Our Mission…

Our mission statement simply reads “CrossHope Chapel exists to love God and to make His love known”.

Our “Cross & Dove” logo reminds us that the cross is the ultimate expression of God’s love for humanity and the sharing of that gospel is to go forth in reliance on the promise of Zechariah 4:6, “Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord”.


Our Values…

We do church a little more laid-back, casual, and simple compared to traditional churches. You can get an idea of our philosophy on how we do church at the Governing Values page.  


Our Beliefs…

We subscribes to traditional evangelical Christian theology, historial biblical interpretations, and holds to our Statement of Faith, as posted at the Doctrines of Church page, as an expression of our church’s fundamental beliefs.


Our Pastor…

CrossHope Chapel was founded by Pastor Steve Durkac after serving as a hospital chaplain in Mobile and realizing that many of our community were disconnected with the church, yet longed for an authentic Christian fellowship. You can read Steve’s bio and denominational background and more at the pastor’s page.


Our History…

You can read how and why Pastor Steve Durkac sensed God’s leading to start our nontraditional approach to doing church at our Our History page.


Our Affiliation…

CrossHope Chapel is a part of the Calvary Global Network, but we are independent, autonomous, and self-governed as a nondenominational church ministry.

We are not opposed to denominations as such, only as they would over-emphasis non-biblical doctrinal differences that lead to division of the body of Christ.

We voluntarily partner with other evangelical churches and ministries that can reach further than us in advancing the Great Commission and you can read more about that at the Cooperative Missions page.


Our Vision…

CrossHope Chapel is committed to trusting in the Holy Spirit (Zechariah 4:6) for the direction and future of our fellowship.

We are both content with whoever or how many the Lord sends to us, and restless in our desire to reach more to be part of our fellowship. On any given Sunday you’ll find a comfortable gathering of 20 – 30, but with room to accommodate 50 or more while maintaining our relaxed conversational Bible teaching format. We also have expansion rooms options to double or triple our leased space at our present location.
