Pastor Todd and Julie Mullins are eager to see a radical transformation in this generation for Christ - a transformation that will revolutionize schools, families and the community with the truth and love of God. They are calling everyone to step up and take their place in God's kingdom - everyday of the week - everywhere they go.
Christ Fellowship started in 1984 as a small Bible study with 40 people in a living room and has grown to nearly 30,000 people on multiple regional campuses in South Florida. In addition, there are nearly 10,000 people experiencing Church Online every week through a live streaming on the Internet around the globe.
In 2011, Founding Pastors Dr. Tom and Donna Mullins, along with the Board of Elders, entrusted the leadership to Todd and Julie Mullins with Todd as the Lead Pastor of Christ Fellowship. The legacy continues as the church soon enters it’s third decade of ministry.
While much has changed through the years, the heart and mission of Christ Fellowship is the same. We’ve outgrown the living room but we’ve never outgrown God’s mission for us: to impact the world with the love and message of Jesus Christ...everyone, everyday, everywhere. We do that as we always have--one person at a time, meeting people right where they are and loving them the best we can.
In April of 1984 five families gathered in the home of Tom and Donna Mullins for prayer and Bible study. This was the beginning of what is now Christ Fellowship Church. In the Fall of 1984 that group had already grown to nearly 40 people and had outgrown the Mullins' living room. The newly formed church moves into the cafetorium of Grove Park Elementary School on Military Trail, Palm Beach Gardens, FL.
The church family had grown to 80. They prayed and fasted before stepping out in faith to purchase an old horse farm on Northlake Boulevard. What is now known as Gardens South Campus opened November 1992 and had 300 in the first service. In the late 90s the congregation of 300 expanded to over 4,000 people. These folks packed five services each weekend and jammed the parking lot. It was at this time prayer and preparation for an additional 40 acres across the street began.
In April 2000 a new campus with three buildings was opened. Immediately new people flooded in to hear the good news of Jesus Christ. It wasn’t long before even this new facility was at full capacity and had to increase to five weekend services. The vision of Christ Fellowship continued as we reached out to impact the large Latin American community in our area. CF en Español now has vibrant congregations on two campuses.
In January 2004, the Impacting Faith mission began with a focus to reach our region through a multi-site strategy. In August 2004, the Wellington/Royal Palm Campus launched at Polo Park Middle School with 800 people. Two years later, the campus grew to almost 2000. God provided for the purchase and renovation of a former Target store. In October 2006, the Royal Palm Campus opened and has been growing ever since. Today, there are over 5,000 children, students and adults who worship there every week.
God was doing a work in downtown West Palm Beach when the doors opened to launch the CityPlace Campus in April 2005. Expanding the vision to reach the heart of the city for Christ, we began meeting at the Harriet Himmel Theater at CityPlace. That campus has since grown to four weekend services.
In January 2008, we launched our Online Campus to reach people for Christ around the corner and around the world. Thousands log on each week from 60 different countries for worship services, pastoral care and discipleship. In August 2009, iPhone video streaming began to allow individuals to participate with CF worship anywhere using their mobile phone. In August 2008, we extended our reach to the Treasure Coast with the Stuart Campus. Nearly 1,000 people worship each week at Martin County High School.
In February 2008, Christ Fellowship church family joined together to make their One Life count by committing to expanding our campus reach even further. Each individual who invests in the future will make a difference in someone else's life and make a difference for the Kingdom of God! That is what One Life is all about—using the commitment of your life to see another’s life transformed. The Gardens Campus opened the Life Center in December 2008, which included the Café 242, Source Bookstore, Student Ministry Center, Adult classrooms and shortly after, a new God’s Town for kids.
In 2009, Christ Fellowship celebrated 25 Years of Impact. In Matthew 28:19-20, Jesus said: "Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. The faithfulness of our church family remains steadfast."

While much has changed through the years, the heart and mission of Christ Fellowship is the same. We are called to impact our world with the love and message of Jesus Christ.
The legacy continues as Dr. Tom and Donna Mullins, along with the Board of Elders, entrust the leadership to Todd and Julie Mullins with Todd as the Lead Pastor of Christ Fellowship.
