• About Jack

    Pastor Jack Abeelen

    Pastor Jack Abeelen, Senior Pastor of Morningstar Christian Chapel, was raised in a Catholic home and attended parochial school from elementary grades through high school. At the age of 18 he heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ presented at a home study of a friend with whom he had grown up. In 1972 he gave his life to Christ and God began to work in his heart and call him to Himself. In 1980 Jack was given the opportunity to join a church staff as an assisting pastor and in 1985 went out to plant what today is the church he still pastors, Morningstar Christian Chapel in Whittier CA., a Calvary Chapel affiliate church. His gift of teaching is clearly seen in the easy and yet relevant way he communicates the Word of God.

We know that teaching the Word of God chapter by chapter and verse by verse will change lives. Won’t you help us in sharing God’s Word with our generation?

1/23/2015 - Philippians 3:1-11
Knowing What Is Valuable
There are several contemporary worship songs that state, “It’s all about Jesus” and even the old hymn, “All to Jesus I surrender.” These songs all proclaim the same fact and that is, Jesus is the fulcrum, the beginning, the end and everything in-between in the Christian’s life. As Pastor Jack takes us to Philippians chapter 3:1-11, he’ll illuminate Paul’s perspective on having Jesus as the constant focus of our Christian walk. So let’s join our teacher ...Read More
