About Real Life Church
Real Life Church opened its doors in October of 2000 as a church plant from Shepherd Church located in Porter Ranch, CA. By 2005 we purchased land on the corner of Newhall Ranch Road and Grandview, which began an 18-month construction process. By April of 2010, construction was completed on our new building. We were ready to reach the Santa Clarita Valley for Christ with an environmentally conscious facility sporting a 1,200 seat auditorium, creative kids’ environments, and an all donation community coffeehouse. In 2011 we were named the fastest-growing church in America by Outreach magazine.
Since then, we have seen tremendous growth and immediately added a 1,700 square foot addition to accommodate more kids. In 2017, Real Life Church merged with Discovery Church, now our Simi Valley campus. In 2019 our Canyon Country campus launched, followed by our Lancaster campus in 2020. In addition to our physical spaces, we have a robust online community that welcomes viewers from around the country.
